COVID-19: What Are Our Next Steps?

COVID-19: What Are Our Next Steps?

Greetings!

Can you believe it’s been an entire week since our last update? Because things are changing rapidly we want to share the most up-to-date news regarding the Club and the efforts going on throughout our organization during the COVID-19 pandemic. Since March 16, when we had to (in the short term) close our doors to programming, we’ve switched gears and focused primarily on feeding those in need. Our amazing staff completely reconfigured themselves into a small meal prep and pick up support army. We are thankful to have the skills, knowledge, and fully equipped kitchen to do this. BGC was able to provide a rapid response to this emergency because we have been serving food to the community’s children for years and we have the infrastructure in place. In just two weeks, we’ve fed over 550 snacks and meals to our community and our members! As more and more families are finding themselves financially burdened due to lay-offs and work closures, the need to feed our community continues to increase. BGC is so grateful to have an inventive and flexible team of staff members -when we see a need we fill it- and so began the collaboration with Door County Medical Center and many other community partners!
