What Does My Participation Support?
 Thanks to supporters such as yourself, BGCWPA hasn’t stopped in the wake of
COVID-19, but has rather adapted to new demands and to the growing needs
amongst our communities.

Throughout the last few months, BGCWPA has been able to meet the demands for food, hygiene items, cleaning supplies, childcare for essential workers, ‘Club on the Go’ activities to do at home, virtual learning, special events, masks and so much more while preparing for the needs of the future to offer youth a blended model of Summer programming. Our efforts to do “whatever it takes” met the needs of over 5,000 kids during COVID-19 including 700 deliveries, 2,000 hot meals and
50,000 grab and go meals.
