Over the years, the ongoing contributions from our volunteers have helped ensure that our Club kids have winter garments, warm meals, and presents to open during the holiday season. Unfortunately because of the COVID-19 pandemic, we won’t be able to welcome volunteers into our Clubs. But there are several ways you or your company can still help those who need it most, all while practicing safe social distancing!

WAYS TO GIVE

  • Drive-by food giveaways – plan a drive-by food fundraiser benefiting your local Boys & Girls Club of Greater Dallas. Examples of great food items to donate are nut butters, canned soups, whole grain breakfast bars, canned vegetables, canned fruit, brown rice, and shelf-stable milk and milk substitutes.
  • Winter clothes drive– plan a winter clothes drive with your family, friends, or coworkers. Items that can be donated to keep our Club kids warm are winter coats, sweaters, hats, and gloves.
  • Virtual holiday storytimes– Volunteers can pre-record a video of them reading their favorite holiday book, which will then be streamed on our social media channels for our followers to see!
  • Fund a Club holiday partyfunding a holiday party is a great way of allowing our Club kids to celebrate the end of the year. Whether it’s a gingerbread making party or a Secret Santa party, these activities are perfect for getting everyone into the holiday spirit!

Your help during these uncertain times is greatly appreciated! If you’d like to learn more about these volunteer opportunities and how to sign up, please contact Carolyn by email at cjordan@bgcdallas.org or phone at (214) 821-2950 x 712.
