BGCDA's Focus on Continuation of Service
During the past three months, BGCDA has been keenly focused on reaching members and families. BGCDA provided meals, virtual programming and educational take-home kits to members and families. It was clear that this would become BGCDA's strategic focus for the remainder of the 'school year.' These changes impacted BGCDA members and staff.

BGCDA is excited to open its doors to serve members this summer! With so much unrest during these times, BGCDA is committed to fostering a safe, inclusive environment for members. It is a time for all to focus on fairness, equity, and justice for all our neighbors.
"I enjoyed the challenge of developing virtual programming for our members. It gave me so much joy to still see our members having fun and learning during our new normal."
~ Cindy Martin, Club Director

"This experience really made me appreciate the impact that we have on our members. Seeing members and parents stay engaged in programming reinforces for me how important we are to members." ~ Montana Tarpley, Club Director

"Staying connected to our teens and other members has proven extremely rewarding during these times. Its awesome to see their smiles and know
they can't wait to return to the Club!" ~ Chris Chappell, Teen Director
"It was a blessing to see members, parents and the community alike share the same energy in regards to helping our families. Unity." ~ Latasha Austin, Site Coordinator

"It has been an honor to be able to still serve our members. I am grateful that our families believe in our mission and continue to empower, enrich and employ
those things that make us great."
~ Lashawn Farmer, Dir. Operations & Programs

Business Investment Spotlight:
Columbia Forest Products
Columbia Forest Products in Chatham, VA has been a partner of BGCDA for many years - sponsoring special events including the spring Golf Tournament and Blue Jeans Gala. This year, Columbia Forest Products made their largest investment to date. Donna Yeatts stated, "We have decided to invest in BGCDA's workforce development program. This $5,000 is a commitment to support the great efforts providing youth with opportunities to learn skills that will be valuable when they enter the workforce."

Columbia Forest Products has "Share the Success" as one of their Core Values: We strive for success in all we do. As we achieve that success, we will share it with both the ones who created it and the communities we live in. BGCDA works with youth through their Junior Staff programming to instill skills needed in the future.

BGCDA is grateful for this continued partnership and excited to have been selected to share in the success of Columbia Forest Products in 2020. THANK YOU - Columbia Forest Products and Caring Team - for providing superior service to your customers, employees, families and communities!
