FALLBROOK — With more than 2,100 student members, Boys & Girls Club facilities in Fallbrook, Bonsall and Pala are the place to be when the afternoon school bell rings. There, “power hour” homework help, games, crafts, music and other supervised activities are keeping kids busy and safe during a time when some might otherwise be at risk.
“The critical hours between 2 and 6 p.m. are when some kids go home to an empty house,” said Chief Executive Officer Abe Oliveras. “The Boys & Girls Club provides affordable supervision until parents get off work and can pick them up.”
