    Agoura, CA – Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Conejo Valley (BGCGCV) has been awarded a $25,000 KidCents Regional Grant to support their Healthy Lifestyle program, “Whatever it Takes to Build Healthy Futures.”

    BGCGCV will increase youth capacity to pursue healthy lifestyle by offering daily programming, healthy snacks, sports league, and active summer camps.  In addition, plans would call for increasing youth development staff capacity to provide cutting edge healthy lifestyle program delivery through provision of training and expanding club capacity to provide healthy lifestyles programming to youth through community engagement.

    “Promoting healthy lifestyles at a young age is key to developing good habits for the future,” stated Dr. Crystal Nāone, President/CEO of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Conejo Valley.  “This grant will help us meet our goals in this vital program to inspire our members and the local community,” she added.

    The KidCents Regional Grant Program, which provides grants of $15,000-$30,000, funds specific out-of-school time programs focused on children’s nutrition, physical fitness and academic success. The KidCents program also annually supports a select group of more than 400 nonprofit, kid-focused organizations committed to improving the health and wellbeing of children living in the communities Rite Aid serves, as well as national organizations focused on critical children’s issues including The Fred Rogers Company, Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals and Folds of Honor.

    In this cycle of KidCents Regional Grants, The Rite Aid Foundation awarded 233 nonprofit grants totaling more than $5 million. Grants were available in select counties in the following states: California, Connecticut, Delaware, Maryland, Michigan, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Virginia and Washington.

    “The Rite Aid Foundation is committed to being a caring neighbor and making meaningful differences for the children and families who live in the communities we serve,” said Tracy Henderson, director of The Rite Aid Foundation and charitable giving initiatives. “The Regional Grant Program significantly expands the reach and impact of our KidCents program, while enabling our partner organizations to provide critical out-of-school time programs that are vital to keeping children and adolescents on track for future success.”

    KidCents Regional Grants support nonprofit organizations with programs that serve children, grades K-12, and improve quality of life in Rite Aid communities. The grants support three of KidCents’ primary focus areas for improving the health and wellbeing of children: healthy eating, active living and education. To be considered, programs and projects were required to take place during out-of-school-time with priority given to programs that support communities in need.

    This is the second cycle of KidCents Regional Grants. In the first cycle, The Rite Aid Foundation awarded 180 grants, totaling more than $4 million.

    Another cycle of KidCents Regional Grants will launch in 2020. To learn more about the program, visit riteaid.com/grants.
