Sears Canada is proud to celebrate 45 years of support to Boys and Girls Clubs of Canada's quality after school programs and the more than 200,000 children, youth and their families this organization helps annually. Over the last 10 years alone, Sears has donated over $2 million to BGCC's kids. To build on our support this year, we have launched the Click for Kids campaign to raise funds for BGCC and awareness of the invaluable work of this national, charitable organization.
Every day, young people at Boys and Girls Clubs are encouraged and supported to make healthy choices for their lives. Many children and youth who attend Boys and Girls Clubs are growing up in very challenging circumstances. Often they struggle with poverty, unstable family and community situations, poor access to community supports and barriers to life opportunities many of us take for granted in Canada. For these kids, it can be hard to get up in the morning and go to school without a proper meal. It can be difficult to complete homework assignments after school and stay motivated to succeed. It is extremely difficult to say no to gangs and drugs when there are no positive opportunities available in the community.
So please, Click for Kids and ask your family and friends to join in supporting positive, life changing opportunities for Canadian children and youth after school.
*Sears will donate up to a maximum of $100,000 to the Click for Kids campaign.
