In March 2020, when COVID-19 struck our community, many families throughout Niagara County were forced to dramatically alter their personal and professional lives. As this unprecedented pandemic hit, the Niagara Falls Boys & Girls Club - a place that many of our region’s children call home - was able to step in and help families when they needed it most.
“During a time of so many unknowns, we were able to know our daughter was safe and well cared for.”
On March 23rd, the doors at our 17th Street Clubhouse opened to provide a free, full day childcare program for essential workers. We changed our hours of operation to be open from 7am to 7pm, seven days a week for our community’s essential employees.
With funding we received from our community, we were able to provide this crucially needed program. The dollars generated were instrumental in helping offer safe and reliable childcare services so essential workers could continue to work during the pandemic. This is a genuine example of how our organization has not only impacted our children, but the families of the community to get through this difficult period. As the pandemic continues, we will continue to provide services to meet the needs of the community. If needed we will adjust again so families can feel confident that their children are safe and cared for.
The Niagara Falls Boys & Girls Club strives to provide an accessible and affordable option for high quality childcare. All school aged kids are welcome to the club, no matter their background or financial status. Without gifts from individuals like you, we would not be able to provide these critical services for so many kids, teens and families throughout the Niagara region.
The Niagara Falls Boys & Girls Club stands ready to do Whatever it Takes to make sure our children, teens and City does not just survive this pandemic but thrives. It is the unwavering support we receive that enables us to continue carrying out our mission during a time of crisis. Thanks to you, our Club is here to nourish young lives with more than food and academics.
Make a difference, kid by kid.
It is critical that we work together to make sure children and communities come out of this time stronger than ever. We cannot do it without you. Kid by kid, you help build better futures. Your gift is necessary to answer the call for help.
Please help support great futures now and help us to continue to do Whatever it Takes.
