We’ve partnered with Boys and Girls Clubs of Columbus (BGCC) to launch Guitars Not Guns in Central Ohio, because our missions are so well-aligned. They’ve been an excellent partner for us, and we’re finishing up our second program in the next couple of weeks.
As most BGCC volunteers do, we received a summary of how 2018 went for BGCC. The numbers tell a phenomenal story.
I’d like to share some of the statistics that show just how much BGCC contributes to the Columbus community. In 2018…
- 600 volunteers gave 9,000 hours of their time to help BGCC kids
- $18,000 was donated to improve programming and facilities
- 460 backpacks, 1,120 holiday gifts, 200 coats, and countless school supplies were given away to kids who needed them
Boys and Girls Club Columbus does incredible things for our city’s youth, and we are honored to have been a part of that. Give them some love for it.
We look forward to continuing this partnership in 2019 and beyond!
