COVID-19 Assistance & Virtual Programs
A Message From the Club:
On March 12, 2020 we made the difficult decision to follow the advice of Governor Charlie Baker and Massachuestts Public Health Officials and we closed the Club. We did this protect our kids, staff, and all their household members and families by closing. It was the best way to ensure that the Boys & Girls Club of Newton did not contribute to the public health crisis that was rapidly developing. If even one child was sickened due to their participation in our program or worse, if an elderly relative or person with a compromised immune system contracted the virus from that child or teen and became ill, we would have found ourselves on the wrong end of satisfying our mission - Inspiring and enabling young people is what we do.
Though we miss our friends dearly, we are hard at work designing amazing programs for Spring & Summer and we hope that you will take advantage of some of these great virtual opportunities for Club participation!
We look forward to seeing your children again soon and the Boys & Girls Club of Newton will be back and stronger than ever.
