Thank you HRDonates!

It is hard to believe that it has been just over a year since the coronavirus pandemic has thrown our community and people’s lives into turmoil.

These have been challenging times for all of us but one thing has stayed the same; our commitment to creating a safe,
fun environment for our members.

Last March, when we were forced to close our building, we knew that there were children, youth, families, and seniors
who would still need our services. While initially we thought that the building closure would last only a few weeks, it
became apparent that it would continue longer. The Club took action and developed creative and innovative ways to stay connected with those who depended on us, at a time when we were needed more than ever.

  • Our education program, M.A.P., provided online tutoring and Chromebooks so that students could stay connected, inspired, and be successful in school.
  • Summer camps helped to provide respite for families while giving kids the chance to explore their imaginations, and be with other kids.
  • Family activity kits and food gift cards were given to families to help ease the challenges associated with the pandemic.
  • Virtual programming was created to stay connected and continue building life skills.
  • Our Digital Creative Arts Centre kept children and youth engaged through online music lessons, performances, and workshops.
  • Our Without Walls program provides online programs to keep aging adults physically active and fit, and staff are making phone calls to seniors to provide a sense of community.
  • Our transit program is providing a lifeline to seniors providing rides for appointments and vaccinations.

We hope that you will consider making a donation to BGC London. Now, more than ever, our community needs us. And we need you.

If you are unable to donate at this time, there are other ways you can support us!

You can advocate for us by telling your friends and family about all of our great programs and the work we do. Even a quick mention on your social media would be appreciated; like our social media pages, and share our posts.

In times like this, we are reminded of how interconnected we all are. Even though we can’t all be together physically, we are together in community.

Thank you for being a friend of the Club. Without you, none of this is possible.

Warmest regards,
Chris Harvey
