BCBA  Please Support Our Plans To Renovate A New Center in Copiague, NY! A privately funded ALL VOLUNTEER 501-C3 charitable organization, BCBA has been serving Long Island by providing quality, structured, sports & fitness programs for youth and Veterans since 2004. All of their programs and camps are designed to empower participants with the self-reliance teachings they'll need, to become Champions in Life! BCBA begun providing FREE services for Veterans in early 2015.   Some of those services include: - On-site PTSD Advocate - On-site Veterans Benefits Advocate - Special Fitness Workouts & Health Programs   - Wheelchair Basketball Program - Veterans Only AA Meetings - On-site Food/Clothing/Housing Coordinator  BCBA has a new location in Copiague, NY.  Their new location will continue to offer fitness programs and boxing camps local youth have come to expect at BCBA.  Though small, it has space to facilitate their PTSD Wellness & Awarness program for Veterans as well as a small boxing ring to re-start their beloved Jr. Olympic Amateur Boxing Program  (the program that started it all, back in 2004).   “These last few years have been a trying time for BCBA. When we moved to Westbrook Elementary School, we thought we had found a new and permanent home. After wasting tens of thousands of dollars setting up and moving there, we were told the landlord had other plans for the space it rented to us, unfortunately, those plans did not include BCBA. Typically, BCBA would never throw in the towel on a fight like this, especially on the local kids and Veterans we service. But having limited resources we had to be practical about the future for our organization”, said Ray Bettinelli, Head Boxing Coach and Acting Director of Operations for BCBA. Though BCBA has moved from its Westbrook location it will continue to offer a variety of programs from their new albeit smaller home in Copiague, NY.  BCBA has started fundraising to help with the cost of buying its own facility where it can run their programs without the interference from greedy landlords. They humbly asks that you consider helping by making a Tax Deductible Donation of any amount today. An ALL VOLUNTEER facility, your support also helps BCBA cover the costs of running and providing their FREE Veteran Programs. For Those Who Can Give More, Please Consider  “BCBA may have been on the ropes, but we will never stop fighting when it comes to supporting kids, our community and  those brave military men and women who have served our Nation.” said Ray Bettinelli. Please support  BCBA !  For more information on this terrific organization and all the programs it offers, visit  www.BCBA.info
