why we're doing it

It is necessary! People are struggling during these uncertain times. The BGC has a 45 year history of working for physical imporvements, greater economic opportunity, and a strengthened sense of well-being for all our neighbors. The past months have proven the need of community based support more than ever! Access to housing, food, education, and employment are the basic requirements that our community needs to be successful and with your help we can help close the gap and provide these programs.
