Greetings! from Boys & Girls Clubs of Puerto Rico

Happy New Year!!! It is such a pleasure to write to you again. On behalf of all of us at Boys & Girls Clubs of Puerto Rico, let me express our deep gratitutde for your support during 2019.

You probably heard the news that southern Puerto Rico was deeply affected by a series of earthquakes and aftershocks earlier this month. I would like you to know that the facilities of Boys & Girls Clubs in Puerto Rico, located across northern Puerto Rico, are in good shape. This is very important, since all public schools in Puerto Rico are closed, waiting for safety certifications and approval to open. Although we do not have Clubs in the south, all children in Puerto Rico are missing classes, regardless of their location.

In response to our kids being out of school, BGCPR has adjusted the schedule at the Clubs so kids can attend Club services during the day. Once classes resume, we will go back to our usual after-school hours. Kids are receiving the same ecucational and prevention services, including a daily hot meal. Your contribution makes this possible. 

The response of the people of Puerto Rico to this force of nature was nothing less than expected and surpassed that of the government by many miles. 

I am sure there's hope. 

And I hope that my next report brings news of happiness, recovery and new beginnings.

Be well,

Greetings, I hope this report finds you well.

As time passes by, I can't help but wonder how things come together. Boys & Girls Clubs of Puerto Rico Hot Meals Project was launched right after one of the most devastating natural disasters Puerto Rico has endured in recent times. Two years have gone by and here we are, still part of this wonderful community that will help Puerto Rico recover, however long that may take.

Your generosity during this time has provided more than 7,000 meals to children in high-risk situations. The fresh product in the picture reminds us that we harvest what we plant. Together, we will harvest responsible, self-sufficient adults when these children grow up. 

November 15, 2019, is National Philanthropy Day. On behalf of all of us at Boys & Girls Clubs of Puerto Rico, have a great day! The next report will be after the holidays. May you have a wonderful new year and may all your wishes come true!
