Awarded: $7,500

The Boys & Girls Clubs of Oklahoma County hosted its 6th annual Flight for Futures event presented by Boeing. While many normal activities were grounded during the COVID-19 pandemic, Boys & Girls Club was, and continues to be, open and a safe place for youth. Due to the current climate, both expenses and demand for services at the Club have increased exponentially. During the crisis, Boys & Girls Clubs of Oklahoma County has connected 375 youth with virtual programming and mentoring, reached 1,250 families weekly for support and homework help, and provided over 10,000 meals for children, youth, and families. The Club also continues to be open to serve members with social distancing and increased sanitation procedures.
