Memories we made at Girls Club in Garden Grove are still with us.

My two sisters and I participated in some of the programs at the former “Girls Club” on Garden Grove Boulevard in the late 1970’s during our pre-teen years.The old house provided space for crafts, games and swimming! Growing up in a single-parent household, we were at loose ends during the summer months and looking for things to do. We lived down the street and around corner from the club, so at least once a week we would ride our bikes to the...

The Club helps me stay active and focused on my dream.

Main Branch has been my second home for 3 years now. I love the Club because there are a lot of fun activities such as computers, science, and sports. Kids should join the Club since it is open to everyone. The Boys & Girls Clubs bus can even pick up lot of kids from their schools. Plus, the Club is much more fun than staying at home. It’s easy to finish homework, especially since there are a lot of staff members ready to...

Listen to my words: I want you to introduce me to Barack Obama.

The Club has had an obvious, positive impact on my life. Now, I want my son to have the same experiences at Boys & Girls Clubs of Garden Grove.

In fact, he is the most persuasive person I know. One particular day he sternly told me, “Listen to my words. I want you to...

Friendship to fraternity, a bond between kids who became men.

On our first day attending my sister and I walked in together.  Immediately I could smell the chlorine to my right and hear the splashes of the pool. We stood gazing through the glass doors, watching in amazement as kids jumped off the diving boards.  We felt like it was a fairy tale.  My sister was so scared to go in, I had to pull her arm until she finally let go of the door.  Then we made our way and toured the facility.  Climbing up the stairs, we found the Golden Gloves Boxing Gym on the second floor which overlooked the basketball...

BGCGG is such a blessing that this family can't thank them enough.

Suddenly, when things were going so good, this small family's world came crashing down. The homeowners came and said “you have 3 days to get out,” we are being evicted. Three days! What? This family was shocked, scared, and worried for they had nowhere to go. They had just paid rent, the car payment, and the phone bill, so it was the worst time of the month financially. Since Daddy was working those next three days, Mommy and Baby Boy started packing.  Well, that third day came around and Mommy and Daddy had everything packed, but still had nowhere to live or put all...
