About the Boys & Girls Club of Boone County
Prior to COVID-19, the Boys & Girls Club of Boone County– Lebanon, Whitestown and Zionsville Units– served 450 members daily and 3,000 total members. The Club offers before and after school programming with transportation to and from community schools. In addition to our daily school programming, the Club offers sports leagues, summer camps and events open to the local community. In the Lebanon Unit, we feed an average of 100 children, five days a week. Without the meal provided by the Club, most of the children would go hungry until school the next day.
The Boys & Girls Club of Boone County’s Emergency Meal Program, established in mid-March, became an essential program in Boone County. When county schools moved to eLearning and the statewide shelter in place order was issued, the organization staff and volunteers served 18,867 meals in-total, drive through style, to anyone in need in the community. The program ran from March 16 until July 2, 16 weeks, 76 days and 2,160 volunteer hours. During the month of July, we distributed meals to be cooked at home twice a week, serving an additional 2,473 meals.
The mission of the Boys & Girls Club of Boone County is to enable all area youth, especially those that need them most, to develop the skills, fitness, and character they need to reach their full potential as productive, caring, and responsible citizens. The vision is to provide Boone County youth a world-class experience that assures success is within reach for everyone who enters our doors, with all members on track to graduate from high school with a plan for the future, demonstrating good character and citizenship, and living a healthy lifestyle.
