For over 51 years, the Boys & Girls Clubs of Monterey County have provided life-changing resources to over 4,000 kids and teens annually. Today, we are committed more than ever, to ensure Club Members, their families, and our community have the resources and support they need to navigate these uncertain times.

Although the progression of COVID-19 has required our community to “shelter-in-place” and temporarily close Clubhouse doors, Boys & Girls Clubs of Monterey County are still providing vital support within our community including nutritional services, virtual programming, literacy intervention, and community telehealth counseling services.

We are calling on our community to help ensure the health and well-being of our kids, their families, and our community in this time of need. Please consider making a donation today or start your own fundraiser. We thank you for your continued support!
