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,” stated Donna Ferraro, the Clubs’ President and CEO. “Each year we are stretched to serve more children with fewer resources.  Having community support for our kids makes a real difference in their lives.”

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.
