A Very Beary Holiday Thanks To United Way and UPS

Help Us Grow the Next Generation of Success Stories
Youth and teens are facing numerous challenges today. From cyber-bullying, drugs and vaping, to the pressures of getting into and affording a college education, kids today can feel overwhelmed instead of inspired about their futures. Your support can help plant the seeds our youth need to build a greater future. 

Since 1966, Boys and Girls Clubs of San Dieguito has been the antidote to issues affecting local youth. Your donation will help us serve EVERY youth in our community, as we never turn away a child from our programs because of family income.

And thanks to a challenge from the Sahm Family Foundation, we can grow even more leaders! All donations received by December 31, 2019 will be matched, dollar for dollar, up to $30,000!

Your gift will ensure that every kid that walks through our doors knows that the local community supports them every day. Be the support they need. Grow the next generation of local leaders.
