Holiday Good Cheer Showcase
December 17, 2022!
Our Holiday Good Cheer initiative has been in existence in some form for nearly seven decades.
Each December, we aim to provide each and every Club Kid and Teen with a gift from Santa (that’s over 1,000 gifts!) and 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.
This year, hundreds of local families will visit our Paterson and Passaic Clubhouses on December 17 to celebrate the holidays during our all-day Holiday Showcase. The showcase will include holiday performances by Club Kids, toys, books, holiday meals and even family pictures with Santa.
There are several ways you can support this event:
Become a Toy Drive Host: In order to collect 1,000+ 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!

VoluntHEROes Summer Camp
All Summer Long!
Calling all VoluntHEROES! Our BGCPP original volunteering extravanganza is back!
Show the Club Kids of the Boys & Girls Club of Paterson and Passaic your super powers and join us for a summer of fun. Corporate and individual VoluntHEROes can join us in July and August 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!
Stuff the Bus
All August Long!
You can make the difference to hundreds of children by participating in our Stuff The Bus Program. As Club Kids plan to return to in-person learning for the first time in nearly two years, it is more important than ever to ensure that they are equipped with the supplies for success.
