At the Clubs

Thank You from Our Club Kids for the Jolly Holidays

A HUGE BGCMP thank you goes out to all our sponsors, donors, and volunteers who made it possible to host a holiday party at each of our 13 Clubs—giving ALL of our Club kids a special holiday experience!


"Exergaming" Hits BGCMP

UnitedHealthcare delivered 150 NERF ENERGY Game Kits, a limited-release game that tracks physical activity and rewards kids for being active, to our Club kids at the Bob & Renee Parsons Branch. The donation is part of a national initiative featuring Hasbro’s NERF products that encourages young people to become more physically active through “exergaming.” We are excited to partner with these two companies, as it supports our priority outcome of making Healthy Choices.


Character Counts

Christina Flores, age 13, attends the Swift Kids Branch. After attending the Club for only two years, she found her passion for soccer through help and encouragement from other Club members. A natural leader, her great sportsmanship keeps others motivated in the game.
