Marshfield Country Club members donated a total of $15,000 to the Marshfield Food Pantry, Marshfield Community Christmas and the Boys & Girls Club of Marshfield.
In early November, the Board of Governors of Marshfield Country Club launched a drive for donations for needy families. In lieu of having their annual parties due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the membership decided to help the many families and individuals who have fallen on very difficult times in Marshfield.
“We are so grateful of their members and staff support for the kids and families who need us the most during this pandemic,” said Jim Bunnell, CEO of the Boys & Girls Club of Marshfield. “They are a true community partner!”
Supporting Youth, Families and the Community in an Uncertain Time
The Boys & Girls Club of Marshfield is working with the Marshfield Food Pantry, the Town of Marshfield, guidelines from the state and the Marshfield Public Schools and other service organizations to provide critical services the community needs to support children and families over the short- and long-term. Among the steps they have taken to meet ongoing needs include: food distribution to food insecure families (hundreds of healthy meals per week in the form of Grab & Go meal boxes, drive-thru dinners and more); providing a safe place for kids while many parents and guardians return to work; and serving as a resource for the Board of Health and other departments to further assist families. Currently, the Boys & Girls Club of Marshfield provides breakfast before school, remote support learning during the day, and traditional after school care for 100 students per day.
