The Boys & Girls Club of San Marcos
isn't just a place that provides after school enrichment activities, where kids can play, attend summer camp, and have somewhere safe to go after school...for thousands of kids and teens, it's so much more.
Every day, with the help of friends, like you, we are giving our members the tools to become dreamers, creators, athletes, adventurers, scholars, leaders...anything they want to be!
Meet Shianne.Shianne has been attending the Club since she was six years old, and so have her two brothers and sister. Her story is similar to many other members. The Club has been an integral part of her life over the years, providing her and her siblings with a safe place to go after school. It's a place where she has developed friendships, learned to communicate with others, and knows that the staff love and care about her. Her mother, Nicole, often tells us that she doesn't know what she would do without the Club, as our services and transportation enable her to work full-time and contribute to her family's income.
We rely on support from community to keep our membership fees extremely low - $10 to $40 per year - so that all young people, like Shianne, can have access to positive role models and mentors, and participate in programs that will help them become productive, responsible, and caring citizens.
Please consider making a gift this holiday season and help us continue providing a place where families know that their kids are safe and cared for after they leave school!
