Boys & Girls Clubs of Maui will begin distribution of 1,500 enrichment kits to Maui’s youth Friday July 17th at five different locations from 3:00-5:30pm.
Each enrichment kit will include healthy snacks, grade-appropriate work books, and engaging activities youth can complete at home, without a computer. “With extended school closures there is a real potential for significant learning loss,” says CEO Kelly Pearson, “We see these enrichment kits as an opportunity to engage youth and encourage healthy lifestyle choices at home.”
To receive an enrichment kit, you can drive through the location nearest to you beginning at 3:00pm on Friday. They ask that you wear a mask and be prepared to share your child’s grade level. Enrichment kits will be given away on a first come, first served basis while supplies last, so come early! For more information, contact firstname.lastname@example.org
