Boys & Girls Clubs of North County raise over $16,000 for their new bus

FALLBROOK – After ending the school year with over 200 children on the waiting list, the Boys & Girls Clubs of North County knew that something drastic needed to be done. Through months of researching options, the club's staff decided it was time to purchase their own brand new school bus to help with their transportation needs.

With the cost of a new school bus being $180,000, the club created a multi-faceted approach to fundraise for the bus. This approach was highlighted by the Boys & Girls Clubs of North County’s foundation offering to match every dollar raised for the bus.

On Friday, Sept. 9, the club kicked off its “Bucks for a Bus” campaign with a few of its closest supporters at a backyard party, featuring live music, heavy hors d’oeuvres and desserts from Elegance on Display. The event help the club raise over $16,000 towards the new bus.

With the foundation matching dollar for dollar, the club has now raised over $32,000 of the $180,000 goal.

“Our board, and our staff are extremely excited for the new possibilities this bus provides for the future of our community,” explained Allison Barclay, the chief executive officer of the Boys & Girls Clubs of North County. “We still have a long way to go and we hope that our friends in the community will join us in supporting this effort!”
