While we are extremely disappointed that we won’t be able to gather together at the Morrissey Hospitality Golf Classic this year, we are incredibly grateful that we can still join forces together to support those in our community that are struggling during this time of uncertainty.
Like so many of your restaurants and places of business, our Club locations have had to close for youth programming in accordance with state guidance for the COVID-19 response plan. But as the needs of the families we serve continue, the work of our Club staff must also continue. BGCTC is committed to supporting our youth and families and keeping all staff employed during this challenging time.
The safety of our youth and families is ALWAYS our number one priority. BGCTC is doing everything possible to keep our youth, staff, and volunteers protected from the spread of COVID-19. During this time we continue to monitor needs in our communities and are increasing supports for our youth and families as they now face additional challenges with school closures, work disruptions, and potential illness and health concerns. We are activating with the following supports:
Family wellness check-ins. BGCTC staff members continue to connect with each one of our families to make sure they have the supports they need during this difficult time. These calls focus on immediate needs related to shelter, food, technology needs, and medical care.
Connection to and distribution of food. BGCTC has been working diligently with food distributors, grocers, and restaurants to provide weekly meal packages (11,000+ meals per week) for our families and connect families to additional nutrition resources.
Delivery of youth development programs as a distance learning model. This includes K-12 academic support, ensuring digital connectivity and distribution of education materials and supplies to youth and families.
Many nonprofit agencies will face financial disruption because of COVID-19, putting serious pressure on operating budgets. BGCTC is living this uncertainty right now. That is why your support is needed now more than ever.
