PRLog - Aug. 3, 2012 - MONTEREY, Calif. -- SEASIDE, CALIFORNIA – July 27, 2012. With back-to-school season upon us, the Boys & Girls Clubs of Monterey County has launched a 6-week campaign focused on equipping Club Members with school supplies, recruiting volunteer mentors and homework helpers, and raising funds to support after-school programs. “The need for funding is significant,”
Approximately 600 youth a day attend two Clubhouse locations in Salinas and Seaside; the Clubs also serve 200 more children in three school-based sites at Harden Middle School, El Sausal Middle School and La Paz Middle School. These daily programs are intentionally designed to boost Club Members’ ability to achieve on-grade progression, graduate from high school, and be college and career-ready.
Those interested in helping can make monetary donations, give new and unused school supplies, or volunteer as mentors or homework helpers, please call 831.394.5171 or visit www.bgcmc.org.
