26843662_1515638128.5549_funddescriptionThe 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

We did it! We were able to take care of the leak and today received the supplies to install a new roof just in time for what looks to be a very wet winter! Words simply cannot express how fortunate we are to have so many passionate people that care about Vista kids and great futures! Thank You, Thank You, Thank You!

Hello Friends,
We're making progress- we received a few more check donations so we're close to $10,000 now. The leak was fixed and we're working on getting a new roof for the Club. The ranges are big from $100K to $300K but we will get there. The preschool is scheduled to reopen next week.

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.
