This season, we are focused on SIMPLE. Everything from work-from-home to school, to holidays, has gotten more complicated this year. It’s brought clarity and focus to our interactions.
In the Clubs, we’ve gotten back to SIMPLE. Supporting kids is simple. Helping essential workers during a pandemic is simple. That’s not to say it’s easy – it’s not. Distance learning, extended hours, intensive cleaning schedules are hard but we know that our mission during this time is clear – help those who need us most.
It’s thanks to YOU that we can serve more than 1,000 youth every day. Our numbers and the need is growing. We’ve been stretched to the limit – operating at 250% of our regular hours over the past 8 months. More than ever, we need your support. Supporting kids is Simple.
Thanks to great community partners, we have so many ways for you to support the Club this holiday season and enjoy some great local programs and companies.
Special thanks to Albertsons Companies customers and their Foundation! BGCAZ was thrilled to receive over $16,000 from its recent Nourishing Neighbors Breakfast for Kids fundraiser to fight childhood hunger. The grant will help our Clubs provide thousands of nutritious meals to kids in need in our community.
The Great Futures Golf Tournament was a great success thanks to so many who joined us for a day of golf at the Wigwam. With your support, we raised $50,000 for our youth and our Priority Outcomes. Special thanks to our sponsors – BMO Harris Bank, Charles Schwab, Wild Horse Pass Development Authority, Amerisure Insurance, AZ Precision Security, PNC, Clear Title, A & C Properties, and Backpack Wine.
