The Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Conejo Valley (BGCGCV) has been awarded $10,000 from the Sempra Energy Foundation in response to the COVID-19 Outbreak.  The grant was awarded through Sempra’s Nonprofit Hardship Fund to help provide expedited grants to a range of small to medium sized non-profit 501 (c) (3) organizations that serve the health, education, welfare or social services needs of individuals and families significantly affected by COVID-19. Sempra Energy Foundation is the non-profit foundation of Sempra Energy, the parent company of SoCalGas.

“We are incredibly grateful to the Sempra Energy Foundation for responding to the crisis in such a positive way for non-profit organizations like ourselves who serve the community,” stated Dr. Crystal Nāone, President/CEO of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Conejo Valley.  “Sempra recognizes the important role non-profits play in our society and we applaud them for this,” she added.

“For many nonprofit organizations, the COVID-19 pandemic is straining resources as demands increase,” said Dennis V. Arriola, board chair of the Sempra Energy Foundation, and executive vice president and group president of Sempra Energy. “The Sempra Energy Foundation grants are helping key organizations serve critical needs for people who need support now more than ever, and the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Conejo Valley are doing just that.”

Funding will go to supporting full-day extended hours at 4 BGCGCV sites that are providing childcare, remote learning support, nutritious meals, and social support to children of first responders, healthcare professionals, essential community personnel, and those parents/guardians who must work to maintain employment.
