As Boys & Girls Clubs of Western Pennsylvania reflects on 2020 as a year of opportunity, with the ability to reach even more youth, communities and families with our virtual, delivery and in person programming and resources, BGCWPA is more equipped than ever to be the highest quality, most comprehensive out of school provider in both Allegheny and Somerset Counties.
Thanks to our supporters, board members and staff, BGCWPA was one of the first organizations in the region to develop virtual curriculum, in person programming following CDC guidelines and delivery options to meet the needs of our Clubhouse families and collaborating partner organizations. As a community advocate and resource, our efforts did not stop in the virtual world, but rather we led the march to conquer the physical needs right in our hometowns.
Although we are so proud of our Clubhouse members, board and staff for taking on 2020, we’d like to recognize that none of this would have been possible without your generous support. We would like to take this moment to thank each and every one of you for your continued support in helping us to ReMEMBER, ReIMAGINE, ReINVEST in our mission, no matter how big or small. It is no secret that 2020 was a challenging year, but as perfectly stated by our Emmy Award winning commercial, together we “want to do whatever it takes, to build great futures where everyone’s safe!”
We wish you a happy holiday! As we finish the year as strong as ever, please consider making a generous gift to launch us into the new year.
