Boys and Girls Aid’s goals are to strengthen the role of adults in the lives of children; provide safe, stable living environments; and advocate for the needs of Oregon’s children. Simply, Boys & Girls Aid’s core purpose is to impact the well-being of children in need.
At Cypress Branch, members impact the well-being of children by:
- Educating the membership and the Charbonneau community about the work of Boys & Girls Aid through monthly meetings and articles in The Villager.
- Planning fundraising events, such as the annual Crab & Rib Dinner, to benefit Boys & Girls Aid.
- Providing special moments for the children through giving holiday sports bags, Easter Baskets, skills training and monthly homemade dinners for the youth in residential care.
- Creating a community that cares about fellowship and strengthening the lives and relationships between our members.
