Today, more than ever, the Boys & Girls Club of the
Long Beach Peninsula is asking for YOUR help
The Boys & Girls Club of the Long Beach Peninsula has been a wonderful after school program serving peninsula kids for over a decade. Since its inception in 2008, it has not only worked to fulfill its mission to inspire youth to realize their full potential, but has become a safe space for kids to be themselves, and to grow into the people they ultimately become.
As you may have seen in the Chinook Observer this past Wednesday (Oct. 9), the Boys & Girls Club has a lot of great things happening! From arts and crafts, team sports, STEM activities, and homework help, the Club is always buzzing.
However…Today, more than ever, the Boys & Girls Club
of the Long Beach Peninsula is asking for YOUR help.
While the Club receives grants from many generous foundations and corporations, rarely do they cover “operating costs” such as staff salaries, internet services, and other monthly costs. The annual operating costs for our local club average around $200,000 and the majority of these costs are covered by individual and business donations.
In order to keep this vital after school program open for our community’s youth, we are asking for your support. Whether you can give a donation of $5 or $15,000, it will help BGC continue the important duty we have to support the development of our youth.
• For credit card donations, click the Donate Today button below or visit our Donation page
• Checks can be mailed to PO Box 1172, Long Beach, WA 98631
• Donations can be dropped off at Club located at 404 School Rd. Ilwaco WA (West Loading Dock entrance to the Ilwaco High School)
A Safe Place for Youth
At Boys & Girls Club of the Long Beach Peninsula, there is nothing more important than the safety of our youth members. We work every day to create a safe, fun environment, so kids can have every opportunity to be successful in life.
A safe, positive environment (encompassing both physical and emotional safety)
Youth development experts trained in social-emotional learning and trauma informed care
Innovative safety policies that protect the physical and emotional well being of our young people
Boys & Girls Clubs give kids a place to call their own, where they can have fun, get a hot meal, be creative, be a part of a team, get help with homework... and just hang out with friends. We offer a safe, fun, inclusive, and inspiring place that kids and their families can count on.
Membership applications can be found at the Club front desk, or in your school’s main office. Please note that the annual Club fee is now $50. There are options available to help cover the cost.
