This week our guest is Susan Haspel, State Director of the Boys and Girls Club Of New Jersey. Boys and Girls Clubs in New Jersey is an alliance of 22 Boys and Girls Club organizations serving over 70,000 youths ages 5-18 throughout the Garden State, including Monmouth and Ocean Counties. Boys and Girls Clubs is a collaborative effort representing all clubs with the purpose of building local club capacity raising public awareness, and securing resources and financial support to increase the impact and reach of local clubs. The mission of the Boys and Girls Clubs is to enable all young people, especially those in need, to reach their full potential as productive, caring and responsible citizens. Like many organizations, the Boys and Girls Club have seen the impact of the COVID epidemic. Susan explained they quickly realized the critical need of providing food at a time when the club families were in need and the clubs were closed.
