330 tablets and computers have been delivered to our kids and teens thanks to our alliances with corporations, individual donors and members from our Board of Directors. Besides these outcomes with our educational services, nearly 75,000 hot meals have been delivered to our participants and families since May, 2020.
Reducing the educational and opportunity gaps of our most vulnerable families is more crucial than ever. We want more kids jingle belling this Holiday Season! They also need to look ahead to the upcoming year with hope. In difficult times, helping them is simple. Let’s continue cheering the spirit of solidarity and empathy within ourselves and our acquaintances! Here are the choices you have to make a gift of gratitude and hope to make 2021 the best year yet:
- End of Year Campaign: The immediate goal with our End of Year Campaign is continue providing services to our kids, youth and families to help them mitigate the impact COVID-19 has had in their lives and get ready to reopen our Clubs as soon as the emergency allows us. As you join this campaign, you can make your year-end donation tax-deductible!
- “Compartiendo Bendiciones” (“Sharing your Blessings”) Campaign – This peer-to-peer campaign started as a concern of Francesco, son to physician Anna di Marco, who wanted to help kids living in poverty, like the 90% of our participants. You can contribute to this fundraiser by donating as an individual, joining or creating a team at https://www.classy.org/campaign/compartiendo-bendiciones/c315573.
- Shopping at AmazonSmile – AmazonSmile is a simple way for you to support Boys & Girls Clubs of Puerto Rico as your favorite charitable organization every time you shop, at no cost to you. When you shop at smile.amazon.com (you can activate it in the app after the first purchase) you’ll find the exact same low prices, vast selection and convenient shopping experience as Amazon.com, with the added benefit that AmazonSmile will donate 0.5% of your eligible purchases to our organization.
