Boys & Girls Club of Greater Houston needs sponsors for “Santa Project”
(HOUSTON CW39) This has been a rough year for many families during this time of COVID, but the Boys and Girls Club of Greater Houston is trying to bring some joy to kids during these trying times, by bringing back its annual Secret Santa Project! And CW39 Houston is thrilled to be the official TV partner of the BGCGH Santa Project!
For more than 13 years, Boys & Girls Club of Greater Houston’s (BGCGH) Santa Project has provided opportunities for individuals and companies to donate gifts to Greater Houston’s most in-need families during the holiday season, and this year is no exception. BGCGH Santa Project, presented by Kroger, recipients are chosen by Club Directors from each of 23 Club locations in five counties. Club Directors then work with these youngsters and their parents or guardians to submit wish lists for holiday gifts, including both needed and wanted items.
The donated gifts, such as toys, books, sports equipment and clothing, are sorted at the Crosby Street location and distributed among Clubs. Parents then pick up the new, wrapped gifts from their local Boys & Girls Club to place in their homes or under their trees to be unwrapped at Christmas.
In addition to presenting sponsor Kroger, BGCGH is pleased to announce CW39 as its media sponsor for Santa Project for the second year.
If you or your company would like to become a sponsor for a child or teen, there are still openings available.
The drop-off dates at 815 Crosby St. are now through December 3rd during the hours of 9 a.m. – 6 p.m. Please make an appointment to deliver your gifts to ensure a smooth process and to comply with COVID safety guidelines.
