Message from Tim Blaylock, Chief Professional officer

Because of your investment every year, the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Oxnard and Port Hueneme has consistently continued to positively impact the lives of more than 9,000 young people and families in our communities – giving them hope, guidance and an opportunity for a brighter future. Instead of going home to an empty house, young children walk through our doors and are greeted by caring adult staff and volunteers, who engage them in positive activities. Instead of hanging out on the streets, teens come to the Club where they find positive role models and productive activities that keep them inspired and motivated.

Each and every day children come through our doors in need of help, in need of an opportunity to participate in positive activities and in need of resources to be successful. Every year our youth at the Boys & Girls Club continue to thrive in our programs, while contributing positively to their Club and their community.

Your generosity allows us to respond to the different challenges our local youth face and ensure that each Club kid receives the following opportunities:

o          A safe place they can depend on everyday

o          Homework help everyday

o          Healthy snacks and/or dinner everyday

o          Physical activities and exercise everyday

o          Monthly opportunities to volunteer and give back to others

o          Ongoing goal setting, workforce readiness, and financial planning

o          Ongoing family support throughout the year

With your support, we provide consistent, self- esteem, values and skill-building experiences, to kids that need us the most. Your contributions help our local youth be more likely to progress to the next grade level, get a job and go to college, make positive and healthy life choices, and take ownership and pride in their community.

Every time one of our youth develops skills and the courage to overcome their personal challenges, we see hope for a brighter future. And each time that happens, we are reminded we could not do it without the support of individuals like you.

Please come by and have our youth give you a tour to see the magic you have helped create at the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Oxnard and Port Hueneme. For $500 a year, a child is given hope and guidance to making good choices for their future. Although we only charge $20 to the family of the youth and if that child cannot pay due to economic hardship they are given a scholarship.

Every dollar counts and your donation today will make an immediate impact in the lives of our local youth. We are not a governmental agency. We are a nonprofit 501C3 and rely on gifts from individuals like you.

Respectfully,

Tim Blaylock

Chief Professional Officer
