Summary

During the COVID-19 crisis, we are counting on doctors, nurses, grocery store workers, police, EMTs and many other essential services providers to make it to work every day. But, many of them can't do that without childcare. Boys & Girls Clubs of Huntington Valley is keeping its doors open to serve infants through 8th graders at its preschools and school age Clubs so parents can do their important jobs that our community needs right now while their kids are in the safe Club environment.

Challenge

In our community in Huntington Beach and Fountain Valley, schools and most daycares are shut down. But, parents who provide essential services for our community still need care for their kids in order to make it to work each day.

Solution

The Club is keeping its preschools and some of its school age Club sites open to help make sure that the people that our community counts on can get to work. At the same time, we're still offering the same outstanding quality, award-winning programming that kids in our community love and learn from. We're partnering with local hospitals to make sure their workers have the childcare they need and opening our services to other essential services providers.

Long-Term Impact

By teaming up with the Boys & Girls Clubs of Huntington Valley to make sure essential services providers have the childcare they need, our community will make it through the COVID-19 crisis. You'll help a healthcare worker save lives. You'll help a grocery store employee make sure families will get the food and supplies they need. You'll help an EMT and a police officer keep our community safe. Your support will change lives and help our whole community make it through this pandemic.
