Parents/Guardians of Boys & Girls Club of Greater Shasta,

We are taking a survey of our Club families about the upcoming summer. Due to the spread of COVID-19 and the continuously evolving policies and regulations surrounding social distancing and infection control, we are unable to confirm plans for a summer program at this time. We are looking into different scenarios to allow us to continue to serve our members and we are wanting to get an estimate of how many members we would have during the summer.

The main question we are asking is: If we are allowed to have a summer program would your child attend?
Boys & Girls Club of Greater Shasta will continue to provide food to families during these unprecedented times. If any family is interested in receiving a weekly bag of food for your family, you may register on a weekly basis by clicking the link below. Food will be available for pick-up on Friday of each week.  All families wishing to participate must register by Wednesday to receive your food on Friday.
We will send out confirmation emails to all registrants with more information on the time and pick-up location.
