Christmas with Torani

Torani’s annual holiday visit has become a beloved tradition for Boys & Girls Club kids. This year, they led our members in arts & crafts, brought delicious treats, and even coordinated a visit from Santa Claus himself. We’re so grateful to have Torani as part of the Boys & Girls Clubs of North San Mateo County’s family!

BGC Teens Volunteer at Glide Memorial

OPTeensGlide02

On October 21st, 2015 several students from the Teen Center hopped on Bart and headed down to San Francisco’s Tenderloin neighborhood to participate in a service learning field trip where we served food at the world famous Glide Memorial. It was an awesome experience and a chance for our youth to give back and serve others in need. Westborough Sixth Grader Xander Vasquez said the following about his experience at Glide:

The trip to Glide Memorial was a blast. It made me feel grateful for what I have and the life that I’m privileged with. I got to meet new people and serve food. I met a man who served our country and lost his leg and had his recovery run him dry. We talked and I got to learn a little bit about him. I served in the “Coffee Box” which was a room where the disabled ate. At the end of the day, I feel good and I know I’ve helped a few people today.
