Help Us Get a New Zamboni!
New Zamboni For BGC Berkshires!

 

 
The Boys and Girls Club of the Berkshires   needs your help raising money for a new Zamboni for our ice rink. 

The ice rink, located on our 3rd floor, is used for a number of different activities such as public skating, figure skating, speed skating, hockey, and so much more!

 The zamboni that we currently have has been in use since 1976, making it 40 years old! Our skaters need a new zamboni they can count on, please help us reach our goal.  

Our facility on Melville Street is the largest Club in the country, with over 120,000 square feet. With our four basketball courts we offer a house basketball league, a travel basketball league and we host many basketball tournaments. With our 25 yard indoor pool, we are the home facility for the high school swim teams in our area, as well as the home facility of the Boys and Girls Club Swim Team “The Gators”. Our ice rink is home to the Taconic High School  hockey team, the Berkshire Bruins youth hockey program, and is the go to place for public skate on the weekends. Aside from our athletic offerings, we have programs that promote healthy lifestyles, team building and more. We offer a leadership group called Keystone, where high school students volunteer to the club. We have a Smart Girls program, which promotes healthy attitudes and life styles among girls ages 8-16. The third floor of our facility is the vocational floor where members can register for cooking classes, woodworking, or they can learn to sew. Not only are we a walk-in facility, but we also have an after school program and a pre-school program where licensed Early Education & Care teachers are able to provide a safe environment where children can grow and learn.

We believe that a good Boys and Girls club provides life-enhancing programs with character development experiences, and faculty that can form caring relationships with our youth. Lastly, we believe that a good club can provide hope and opportunity to each child that walks through our doors. The club serves over 1,000 members of Berkshire County, and your donation will contribute greatly to their future.
