Your support is making sure that moms like Ana have one thing they can count on in these uncertain times - the Boys & Girls Club. Ana says, "The scholarship to the Boys & Girls Club does wonders for our family. We recently moved to Orange County and our rent nearly doubled! Both my boyfriend and I work 40+ hours a week. Due to the stay at home order, he was not working for two months. So, now we are getting back to normal and getting on our feet financially. This scholarship makes one less thing for us to worry about financially. We are so grateful you are open so we can each continue to work and the scholarship takes a significant load off our backs.
When we started to look for a place to care for my son while we're working, I thought of the Boys & Girls Club because I was in Boys & Girls Club as a kid. I knew my son would love it, and he does. We know that the pandemic has been hard on everyone, including the kids. But, Mason talks nonstop about the fun he is having at the Club and we want him to continue enjoying that. It feels good to know he's safe and happy while I'm at work."
From one generation to the next, the Boys & Girls Clubs of Huntington Valley is a place that families know they can always rely on. In these difficult times, that means a lot. Thank you for making a difference to families like Ana and Mason's by supporting the Boys & Girls Club.
