BGCMT Back2School Campaign Imahe Child with Mask

Back2School looks a lot different this year for Middle Tennessee.

Boys & Girls Clubs of Middle Tennessee will do whatever it takes to enable our young people, especially those who need us the most, to reach their full potential.

As children and teens head back to school this year, we are facing unprecedented challenges in making sure our young people have everything they need, including access to technology, adequate food, school supplies, and mentorship during these difficult times.

Our doors stay open for their #GreatFutures, but we need your help to keep them open.

This back to school season, consider a donation to:

Buy a Backpack

Pack a Backpack $25

 

Ensuring Great Futures starts with fundamental supplies. Please consider Packing a Backpack full of essential school supplies for Club Youth, such as pens, pencils, markers, crayons, paper, paperclips, whiteout, a binder, and more.

Support a School

Fund Great Futures $1000

There’s no denying that our youth are facing uncertain and new challenges this year. COVID-19 creates obstacles for everyone involved in the learning process. At BGCMT we’ve not only seen the challenges this causes for our Club youth, but also the parents who are forced to juggle work and teaching, teachers who have to follow increased CDC guidelines, and youth who lose access to mentors and tutors. When you chose to fund great futures, you are ensuring teachers, mentors, and students have the tools for a successful 2020! 

 

And remember, every $1 donated to BGCMT equals $12.47 worth of Community impact.
