News & Events

We’ve been working hard to improve the lives of our youth. Here’s what we’ve been up to lately:

Check out our Fall edition of Keeping Up with the Clubs!

The Giving Tree is a gift drive that will put clothing and gifts in the hands of 400+ children in need across Northern Orange & Sullivan Counties this holiday season! Giving Tree host sites will display a non-denominational holiday tree with ornaments that list a child’s first name, age, and size/hobby information.

From November 13 through December 8, donors can sign up, take an ornament and return a gift for the child listed on their ornament.

From December 11 through December 22, the Club staff and volunteers will collect and distribute the gifts to Club kids and other children in need in our area. We help our Club kids and our campers, and then we also open the drive up to as many children as we can serve from communities outside our service area too!

If you are interested in sponsoring a child, but cannot visit one of our host sites to pick up an ornament, we're happy to email it to you! Please just give us a call at (845) 342-8833!

Interested in Applying?
If you are interested in applying for your child(ren) to receive gifts through The Giving Tree, please print and fill out the appropriate application. Instructions for submission can be found on the first page of each application.

Children who do not attend Boys & Girls Clubs' before or after school programs and or our summer day day camps are required to also submit financial documentation to be considered.

Applications will be accepted on a first-come, first-serve basis as long as our resources allow by the date below.

If submitting for multiple children, please fill out a separate application for each child.

The application MUST be received by our office no later than, November 10, 2017.
