SUPPORT THIS INDEPENDENT JOURNALISM
The article you’re about to read is from our reporters doing their important work — investigating, researching, and writing their stories. We want to provide informative and inspirational stories that connect you to the people, issues and opportunities within our community. Journalism requires lots of resources. Today, our business model has been interrupted by the pandemic; the vast majority of our advertisers’ businesses have been impacted. That’s why the DP Times is now turning to you for financial support. Learn more about our new Insider’s program here. Thank you.
On Aug. 15, the Boys & Girls Club of Capistrano Valley and fourteen fellow clubs partnered with the Orange County Community Foundation (OCCF) to host Greatness Amplified, a Giving Day for all Boys & Girls Clubs in Orange County. The 24-hour online effort raised $225,000 with the participation of more than 389 donors and local organizations providing support and resources to children in need. This was the first time all 15 Orange County Clubs have come together in a single fundraising initiative. The participating clubs included Boys and Girls Clubs in Anaheim, Brea-Placentia-Yorba Linda, Buena Park, Capistrano Valley, Central Orange Coast, Cypress, Fullerton, Garden Grove, Huntington Valley, Laguna Beach, La Habra, South Coast Area, Stanton, Tustin and Westminster.
Additional collaborative Giving Days will be announced over the coming year. For more information, please visit oc-cf.org/iheartoc.
