Unwrapping the gifts of greatness

As we enter the holiday season and reflect on 2019, we realize that this year has been pretty special for all of us at Boys & Girls Clubs of Central Orange Coast. Thanks to tremendous donor and community support, we wrapped up our Pursuing Greatness Campaign and unveiled four newly redeveloped 21st century Boys & Girls Clubs equipped with new technology and collaborative spaces to help every child we serve pursue his or her unique greatness.

Our new Clubs are more than gift boxes filled with Chromebooks, iPads, 3D printers, robotics, art walls, gymnasiums, teen centers, culinary centers, and everything our Club members need to build 21st century skills. What’s really inside those “gift boxes” are the real gifts they get to unwrap every day: curiosity, exploration, discovery, enrichment, fun, mentorship, and a path toward greatness.

Through our Clubs and partner sites, we will serve 9,500 youth this year, 87% of whom are considered low income and 100% of whom, regardless of their background or zip code, deserve access to mentors and champions in life and the chance to continue exploring, discovering, and pursuing greatness. During this season of giving, please consider a gift to support this pursuit.

We extend to you our most heartfelt gratitude for your ongoing support of our Club kids and our mission. We are honored to have you as part of our family! The investments you make in our Club and the youth we serve make greatness possible—this season and throughout the year.

We remain committed to providing the mentors and support systems to every child within our reach, ensuring they and their families have the resources to unwrap their greatest potential. Our work is far from done. We hope you will continue to support our kids’ futures and help close the year with a gift of greatness.

From our family to yours, we wish you the happiest of holidays!
