Chips for Children is going virtual

Important news about Chips for Children:

Due to the ongoing pandemic and social restrictions, we won’t be able to hold a live, in-person casino night event supporting the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greensboro this October as we’ve done for the past six years.

Instead, we’re going to hold a fundraising campaign between now and October 16, the original date for our Chips for Children event.

The need is greater than ever this year because of the challenges the COVID pandemic has created for our clubs and members. So, even though we won’t be gathering together for a party, we still need your support.

We’re asking all of our faithful Chips for Children supporters to donate their sponsorships again this year or to contribute more if possible. And if you’ve supported the cause by purchasing tickets to Chips for Children in the past, we ask you to make a donation in that amount or more this year. Our goal is to raise $125,000 for the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greensboro.

ABOUT THE BOYS & GIRLS CLUBS OF GREENSBORO

Rising to the challenges

The Boys and Girls Clubs have risen to the unique challenges associated with the COVID crisis. They are engaging with Greensboro’s youth virtually and they’ve opened their club doors to members according to state and CDC guidelines. As the school year begins with remote learning for at least the first nine weeks, they’ll offer their clubs as remote learning space for parents who are working and continue their club programs in the afternoon.

To meet the most pressing needs of club youth, their programs will intentionally hone in on emotional resiliency and on bridging the impending achievement gap. They’ll also ensure that each child has two meals each day at the club. Children who attend the club do so at a subsidized cost. Now more than ever, as families are struggling  with the effects of the pandemic the Boys and Girls Club must rise to the challenges to meet the needs of Greensboro’s youth.

That’s why your support for Chips for Children is needed now more than ever before.

Funds raised from Chips for Children support local programs of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greensboro. BluSky is wholeheartedly committed to their mission.
