Donate School Supplies for the 2017 Corporate Cup

 

Since 1939, Boys & Girls Clubs of San Antonio has been serving the youth of our community, especially those who need us most. And they do need us. They live in some of the most dangerous neighborhoods of our city. But with your help, they are staying in school and finding success.

 

Every year, Boys & Girls Clubs supports and inspires nearly 8,400 at-risk youth. The Clubs are neighborhood-based and family-oriented with programs focused on Academic Success, Healthy Lifestyles and Good Character & Citizenship.

 

The impact is astounding. Last year, 99% of members stayed in school and successfully progressed to the next grade level.  99% improved their grades in basic skills courses including math, science and reading. And 87% of graduating teens pursued higher education.

 

Point System

 

For many of the families we serve, purchasing school supplies year-round is an expense they cannot afford. This means hundreds of kids are going to school empty-handed and unprepared to learn. Your donations give Club members the tools they need to succeed. With your help we can ensure every child has the same opportunity to find success and achieve a great future, regardless of economic barriers.

 

For the Corporate Cup Charity Challenge, we are collecting the following new school supplies:

 

1 Dozen Pencils = 1 Point
1 Dozen Crayons = 1 Point
3 Glue Sticks = 1 Point
4 oz. Bottle of Glue = 1 Point
50 Sheet Pack of Construction Paper = 1 Point

 

Every $2 donated = 1 Point
