MOVING FORWARD

A Letter to Our Supporters

Like the rest of the country, the Club is emerging from COVID restrictions. We are filled with hope this spring to move forward for our Club kids. During this pandemic from June 2020 onward, we learned how to operate in-person programming with health checks, masks/PPE, social distancing, and classroom pods. We’ve served 200+ youth each day. For K-8th grade students, we provided full-day child care and after school programs at both Clubhouses. For teens, we delivered in-person and online recreation, enrichment, and Career and College Access programs.

 

Trenton schools had 100% remote learning for more than a whole school year, and the education gap, already evident, has grown and will slow student’s progress for years. So, we are preparing to double the number of youth served, increasing our hours and days supporting students, providing meals twice a day, and implementing pull-out tutoring and mental health programs to combat learning loss and the social-emotional toll from the pandemic.

 

This fall, we plan to open after school programs at three Trenton schools by raising $150,000 in private individual donations to serve 100 new students. We've targeted elementary schools Parker, Mott and Grant in Trenton, as the kids need us there now more than ever. Help us by going to https://bit.ly/2021MoveForward or by volunteering at one of our events or one of our Club member programs.

 

We feel incredibly blessed over this past year. We thank our donors and supporters who ensured we had the resources to re-open quickly and serve the community. We also gratefully acknowledge our dedicated staff that came into work each day to provide Trenton area youth with a safe and enriching place to grow and learn. BGC Mercer continued to positively affect and impact our youth who need us the most. We will continue to move forward.

 

Yours,

David Anderson

President & CEO
