Boys and Girls Country is thinking of all of you in this unprecedented time. Above all, we hope that you and your families are safe and healthy.
As the community continues to be impacted by COVID-19, the children of Boys and Girls Country need us like never before. Our teaching parents are doing a remarkable job maintaining a routine and helping the kids cope with the realities of today’s world. We are doing everything possible to ensure our children are safe and supported. Most of our kids came to live at BGC after experiencing trauma, and they need additional structure, guidance and counseling. The stressors that we all feel are magnified for them.
We were saddened to cancel Spring Festival, which is our second largest fundraising event and raises about $400,000 annually to care for our kids. Additionally, our financial support has been affected by the downturn in the stock and energy markets.
We ask that you prayerfully consider supporting Boys and Girls Country during this time of uncertainty. Your donation will help Boys and Girls Country continue to be a place of joy and safety, and our kids will be reassured, once again, that they are loved.
Thank you for your prayers, consideration and on-going support.
Blessings for health and safety for you and your family,
Chief Executive Officer
