Boys & Girls Club of Vista Flooding
The Boys and Girls Club of Vista is a safe and fun place with programs focusing on character development, academic success and healthy lifestyles. We are open weekdays after school (Monday through Friday), as well as during school breaks.
Since 1963, our mission has been to inspire and enable all boys and girls but especially those that need us the most, to reach their full potential as responsible, productive, and caring citizens.
Due to the major rain storm on January 9, 2018, a drainage pipe broke connected to our roof and water came in quickly over night. It flooded 50% of our facility. Right now, the preschool, gamesroom, and art deparments are closed until further notice. We're hoping our nsurance will cover the costs of the repairs. However, we are asking for your help to get a new roof to prevent future leaks/flooding. Our building was built in 1965 and has served thousands of kids helping with academic success, character development and healthy lifestyles . With your help, we hope a new roof will help us make a positive impact on thousands more of kids for future generations of Vista kids
Thanks for everyone's support. We're wrapping up the water removal today to hopefully eliminate any mold. Half of the Club's rooms are open right now- the preschool kids still don't have a place to go in Vista unfortunately that meets the preschool's licensing needs. We appreciate everyone's help- the kids are even pitching in to get their Boys & Girls Club games room and art department back. If you can, please share with your friends so we can hopefully drum up more support. Thank you.
Thanks everyone for the incredible support in less than 1 day we've raised over $1000. We appreciate the help in helping us provide a safe and positive place for kids! Our Tax ID for your records is 95-2266749. We're new to GoFundMe and are still learning the ropes. Thanks again!
