Boys & Girls Clubs of the Austin Area

Have you heard of the Boys & Girls Clubs of the Austin Area? Their mission is to enable and empower all young people to reach their full potential regardless of their economic situation. The BGCAA focuses on academic success, character and leadership development, and life and workforce readiness. Each year they provide hundreds of academic support hours, thousands of meals and snacks, and more smiles than you can count to kids who need their help. They have 19 locations in the Greater Austin area and service nearly 3,000 kids a day!

Through January 2nd, Tide Cleaners is hosting a Winter Coat Drive to benefit BGCAA. Donate if you can, and think about hosting your own events to help the BGCAA throughout the year!


CEO Gordon Butler

Gordon stopped by Local Insights to share the success story of the BGCAA and encourage you to support our next generation. They have been working hard for our kids for 55 years. Hear how you can support their mission, and donate a coat at Tide Cleaners if you can!
