The Boys and Girls Club of the Sandhills has been working hard since schools closed last spring to keep families fed and supported throughout this crisis. (Our Team Green charity has been helping with the feeding part through our Neighbors Feeding Neighbors initiative!) During COVID-19, they’ve distributed more than 247,000 free meals so no child no goes hungry. As the Club has reopened at reduced capacity, they are getting back to providing a productive space coupled with enrichment programs designed to help Moore County kids and teens reach their fullest potential. For many kids, the fear and uncertainty of COVID-19 along with extended school closures negatively impacted not only their academic progress but their sense of wellbeing. The caring youth development professionals at the Boys and Girls Club are helping children and teens adjust and make up for lost classroom time, as well as provide a space for them to focus on just being a kid. They are also providing a virtual Club experience for Club members who can benefit from that option as well.
