Are you looking for a way to make a difference this holiday season?

Boys & Girls Clubs of the Twin Cities invites you to participate in our annual Kids Can Give holiday gift drive!

For over 25 years, the Boys & Girls Clubs and our community partners have been collecting donated gifts during the holiday season to distribute to the thousands of kids we serve each year. Through Kids Can Give, each Club member has the opportunity to “shop” at the holiday store set up at their local Boys & Girls Club in December, so they can bring their selected gifts home to their families.

Given the challenges our community and nation have faced this year with the impact of COVID-19, BGCTC is especially dedicated to ensuring a joyful holiday experience for each one of our Club kids and families.

It is truly an incredible experience for all involved to see the excitement in our kids as they think of their loved ones and shop for special holiday gifts. Gifts are wrapped on-site with the help of staff members and volunteers and are sent home with the kids just in time for the holidays.

Please consider donating to Kids Can Give to help a child fulfill their holiday wish!

You can help by collecting gifts at your place of business, using our online gift registries through Amazon and Target, or by volunteering at our Club holiday stores in December to help distribute gifts to families! BGCTC considers safety our number one priority and will be practicing social distancing and frequent sanitizing to keep our event as safe as possible for kids, staff and volunteers.

Gifts are needed for all ages!
