At Boys and Girls Country, we know that education is absolutely critical for a successful future. Education will always be one of our top priorities, whether the kids are back in the school building full-time, schooling from home or some combination in between.
Unfortunately, children in “out-of-home placements” like BGC are less likely than their peers to earn a high school diploma or GED, and our kids often come to us several grade levels behind their peers in key subjects.
With the new school year fast-approaching and the uncertainty still surrounding it, our kids need the love and security that BGC provides more than ever before to continue making progress in school. When you give, you make sure our kids are fed and have their own beds to sleep in. You also help them grow their social skills, overcome trauma and find healing and hope. All of these things allow them to focus on learning and pave the way for a better life.
Current economic forecasts, the volatility of the stock market and the slowdown in the oil industry have put a strain on our resources and those of the entire community. However, we remain committed to our mission of changing the lives of children from families in crisis by loving and nurturing them in a Christian home environment, raising them to become self-sustaining and contributing adults.
For 49 years, you have helped us care for our kids. Now, as we prepare for the upcoming school year, we ask that you prayerfully consider making a gift to invest in their futures. Your gift of $50, $100 or $250 or more helps BGC weather this crisis and continue to be a place of healing and safety for our kids.
We are so thankful for your support. Every gift ensures that our mission is alive and that the future of our children and young adults is bright.
Blessings for health and safety for you and your family,
Chief Executive Officer
