All Units are closed until May 4th

Boys & Girls Club of Boone County Offering Take Away Meals

(Updated March 16th, 2020)

At the Boys & Girls Club of Boone County, the health and safety of our members is our top priority.

With the closing of local schools and our three units, there is an unintended consequence of availability for meals for families in most need of our services.  To address this need the Club will be offering a take out evening meal at the Lebanon Unit, 403 West Main Street.   The offering is available to Club members and any community member in need during these difficult times.

Meals will be available Monday through Friday beginning March 16 – March 27 from 4:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. with a limit of eight carry out meals per family.  We are initially preparing meals for at least 100 people each day and will make adjustments as needed.

The Club is offering this service to the Boone County community during this time of need.  The meal program is not funded by the Department of Education program as those funds are only available when the Club is open for daily services.  Therefore, the Club is actively seeking monetary and food donations.

Make a Donation

There is a food donation box placed outside the Zionsville (East Club) 1575 Mulberry Street or drop off during business hours Monday – Friday 9 am to 5 pm.

Items needed:

  • Applesauce
  • Fruit cups
  • Carrot and celery sticks
  • Apple slices
  • Canned vegetables
  • Hamburger and Hot dog buns
  • Hot dogs
  • Spaghetti and sauce
  • Ground beef
  • Shredded cheese
  • Taco shells and seasoning

Thank you to the Community Foundation of Boone County for stepping up to initially support this effort.  We will need additional help to continue to provide this program for the families who need it most in these uncertain times.

In addition, we are in need of volunteers to assist distributing the meals.

Sign up to Volunteer

If you have any questions about the offering or would like to help,  please reach out to me or any of our Club staff.

Stay Healthy,

Mark Branch, CEO

Coronavirus (COVID-19) Information

At the Boys & Girls Club of Boone County, the health and safety of our members is our top priority. In light of the news about the Coronavirus (COVID-19), we want to reassure you that we are taking additional measures. Health officials are encouraging all of us to be proactive in preventing the spread of the Coronavirus. Everyone has a role to play.

It is imperative, if your child is not feeling well, has a cough, fever or other symptoms that the child does not attend the Club. If any member at the Club exhibits any of these symptoms, the staff will call the parent and have the child sit behind the desk until he or she is picked up.

The Centers for Disease Control recommends everyday prevention measures for individuals, including:

  • Wash hands frequently with soap and water for at least 20 seconds
  • Avoid touching face with unwashed hands
  • Stay home when sick
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces

Our staff regularly clean equipment and surfaces in each of our Units which includes game tables, tables and chairs and program equipment. We are increasing our daily cleaning in order to keep up with the germs. In addition, we have a nightly cleaning crew.

Our sports leagues will continue as scheduled. We recommend either fist bumps in the line or no handshake line at all to prevent direct hand to hand touching and potential spreading of germs.

We will follow the Zionsville Community School and Lebanon Community School policies in regards to hours of operation. If the schools close, the Club will also close for the health and safety of our staff and members.

If you have any concerns, please do not hesitate to reach out to any of our Club staff.

Regards,

Mark Branch
CEO, Boys & Girls Club of Boone County
