Making a Difference For All Cape Cod
one young life at a time
Give a Child The Gift of
a Great Future!
After-school hours are the most dangerous for a child with no one to look after them. And juvenile crime spikes after 3 p.m. That means an at-risk child on Cape Cod needs YOU right now.
To that child, and 1,076 more, the Boys & Girls Club of Cape Cod feels like a second home — with an "extended family" that cares, and programs that help them avoid high risk behaviors like drinking or using drugs. Please donate today. https://www.boysgirlsclubcapecod.org/page.php?page=8
This is the time of year when our coffers are almost empty and your help means the most!
Thanks to you, our children will know they're valued. Plus, they'll be in a place of safety with:
•A healthy snack or meal — sometimes the only one they'll get all day.
•A chance to learn about technology, art or cooking.
•Plus tutoring, mentoring and more!
As we approach the time of year when we celebrate family, you can extend the family of a child and change their life by giving a gift today. https://www.boysgirlsclubcapecod.org/page.php?page=8
