Get active! BNJaycees making activity bags for the Boys and Girls Club : Tl;Dr: The Jaycees are putting together activity packets for Boys & Girls Club. Consider donating $7.50 to find a packet. We're also looking for people/businesses to print out packet sections (around 250 pages) More info here -- Full info from the event details: The Boys & Club provides a very important resource for children from low income families in our community through providing a safe place for these kiddos to receive food, structure, and learning opportunities. Because of the shelter-in-place order their members have been cut off from the Boys & Girls Club’s services. When the Bloomington-Normal Jaycees asked “How can we help?” the Bloomington Boys & Girls Club responded that we could organize 200 bags full of art activities for their members to complete at home. We are providing two options for sponsoring a bag: 1) Sponsor a Bag for Donation to the Boys & Girls Club. By donating $7.50 you will be covering the cost of putting together a bag full of art supplies and 10 activities for a child in need. 2) Buy a Bag, Sponsor a Bag to be Donated to the Boys & Girls Club. Have a kiddo in your life that has been stuck at home? By donating $15 you will provide a bag for your kid and cover the costs of us donating a bag full of art supplies and 10 activities to a child in need.
