Giving Tuesday is on December 1st this year and we are reminded the importance of giving. We at Boys and Girls Clubs of the Okanagan feel there is no better time to GIVE THANKS to all the special individuals and organizations who decided they would help Boys and Girls Clubs of the Okanagan and children, youth and families in our communities who needed us most. Over the last while, we have received an overwhelming response to help our families in need with food and basic essentials; assist us with our new virtual programming and activity kits to ensure young people still have access to programs and services when they have to self isolate as well as the support to help us continue the work we are doing every day to keep our kids safe and healthy.
It has been an interesting time and we have been continuing to adapt and ensure that no child, youth, or family is slipping through the cracks. It is a bit challenging to navigate things at the moment and for our most vulnerable families, it can be especially difficult. We know that for many of you, the struggles exist as well, so when we receive a donation of any kind to help someone else’s situation, we are so grateful. It isn’t easy for anyone right now and so it makes your gift even more meaningful.
So on this Giving Tuesday, we GIVE THANKS to those who have made a difference
Sending all of you a virtual hug from all of us at the Boys and Girls Clubs of the Okanagan. Again as Dr. Bonnie Henry keeps reminding us…..” Be Calm, Be Kind, and Be Safe”.
Together we are stronger!
