JANUARY 2020
Hello Friend of the Boys & Girls Club of Greater Shasta,

From all of us at the Boys & Girls Club of Greater Shasta, we wish you and your family a happy, and healthy New Year.

This is a special time of year, an opportunity to reflect on the year just past and consider what the future holds. This past year has taught us that we are resilient, and that in times of adversity we can all collectively come together and rise to the occasion. At the Club, we are committed to continuing to do whatever it takes to meet the needs of youth and our community, now, and in the year ahead. As such, we are excited to announce that the Club will be reopening on Tuesday, January 19. Please read below to learn more about registering your child for 2021 at the Club!

We look forward to welcoming our Club members back in-person, and stand ready to provide a safe, fun place for kids to be kids-- a place where they can learn, play, grow and dream during a time when it is needed the most.

In a year unlike any other, thank you all for helping us continue to fulfill our mission.


With the utmost appreciation,
 
Noam Zimin,
CEO

CLUB NEWS
As we begin 2021, and plan to re-open our Club doors, we are always committed to the health and safety of our Club members and Staff. Safety remains the number one priority of Boys & Girls Club of Greater Shasta and we are doing everything possible to keep children, our staff, and volunteers protected from the COVID-19 virus through infection prevention and safety protocols. We continue to monitor all updates from the Centers of Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and local and state health departments for updated information. We would also like to reassure you that our Club staff and volunteers receive COVID testing regularly.

Upon re-opening, we are returning to an After-school schedule, as well as implementing new Annual Club Membership Dues. Annual Club Memberships are $20 and will be active for the calendar year (Jan 1, 2021-December 31, 2021).  This fee remains at $20 regardless of your child's registration date during the year. Additional Program Fees may be applicable throughout the year such as specialty Club programs (i.e. Mt. Biking, Ski & Snowboard, etc.) and our Summer Program.
Every Club member will need to complete a 2021 Membership Application to register for the new year.

To have your child participate in this new year at the Club, please complete both the Membership Application and Parent Handbook which can be accessed below.
DO YOU SHOP ON AMAZON?!
HERE IS AN EASY WAY TO GIVE TO YOUTH:
Did you know that by simply purchasing your regular Amazon purchases and Holiday gifts through Amazon Smile, Amazon donates .05% of your purchases to the Club with no impact on your purchase total?

Let's break this down a bit...

According to Amazon, the average family spends about $100/month on Amazon purchases. That means over the course of a year, your purchases could result in a $60 donation to the Club. Multiply that by all of our supporters, and imagine the change you can make for Siskiyou County youth!

If you have any questions, please call our Office at 530-220-7623.
