5 Ways to Get Kids Ready for School with BGCMP

Donate a Backpack

This year, we’ve have made it easy for you to support our BGCMP Club kids.  You can buy a backpack, filled or empty online and we will make sure one of our kids gets a brand-new backpack when they go back to class in August!


Planet Fitness - Back to School Drive
(July 8 – 24)

Purchase any of the items on the school supply list and drop off an empty backpack and/or supplies at your local Planet Fitness by Wednesday, July 24 to benefit your local Boys & Girls Clubs.


Drop a Ball at Twin Peaks - Sports Equipment Drive
(June 14 – August 2)

Twin Peaks is hosting an equipment drive where you win too!  Drop off footballs, basketballs, or even a jump rope at any Twin Peaks Restaurant for Boys & Girls Clubs and you’ll receive a $5 gift card!

Create Your Own Back to School Supply Drive

Many companies create their own Back to School Drives to support Boys & Girls Clubs and engage employees.  BGCMP can build posters and collateral for your business to help make your drive successful.  It’s a great team-building program where employees can support a local charity right in their own office.  You can make it fun with department competitions too!  Contact Jill at to learn more.

Volunteer to Help BGCMP Kids Shop for School on August 10

Do you have a great eye for shopping?  On Saturday, August 10, more than 120 volunteers will gather to help BGCMP members shop for new school clothes at Paradise Valley Mall.  Stores like JCPenney open early to allow our students to select clothes, shoes and gear for the 2019 school year.  If you want to help a kid feel like a star for a morning, we need YOU!  Contact Emily at for more information.
