VoluntHERO Week
April 2022

Boys and Girls Club

Calling all VoluntHEROES! Our BGCPP original volunteering extravanganza is back again!

Show the Club Kids of the Boys & Girls Club of Paterson and Passaic your super powers and join us for a Spring Break of fun. Corporate and individual VoluntHEROes can join us from April 12 – 22, 2022 for in-person activities with Club Kids, ages 5-13.

How does it work? Easy, peasy! Each volunteer will choose their activity and then will be paired up with a group of Club Kids and their staff leader.  Sessions are designed to engage volunteers and members alike in in various activities that highlight the value of literacy, healthy habits, STEM, and plain old FUN.  This initiative is a perfect fit for corporate engagement days!

Holiday Good Cheer Initiative
All December Long!

Boys and Girls Club

Our Holiday Good Cheer initiative has been in existence in some form for nearly 7 decades.

Each December, we aim to provide each and every Club Kid and Teen with an individual gift from Santa (that’s over 800 gifts!) as well as a holiday season filled with joy.  In addition, 150 Club Families are provided with a holiday gift bundle that includes clothing, necessities, and meals for the entire household.

There are several ways you can support this event:

Become a Toy Drive Host: In order to collect 800+ toys, our Club needs lots of Santa’s helpers to assist.  This is a great opportunity for corporate partners, school-based or civic organizations, or individuals to get involved.

Send Us a Toy via Amazon: Be a Secret Santa for one or more Club Kids by selecting and sending a gift right from our Amazon Wishlist!
