THE STORY:

Jeremy Deming wrote -

Boys & Girls Clubs of Santa Maria Valley's Railroad clubsite is the oldest youth serving facility in North Santa Maria. It is a source of pride for local youth, parents, and the community as a whole. Considering the building's age, we came to the conclusion that gym renovations were needed and long overdue.

Every year, thousands of youth play, gather, rehearse, and learn in our Railroad Club's gym. We are often challenged by the overwhelming need of this community space, resorting to outdoor classes and reduced gym time. We are literally busting at the seams. Committed to the health and wellness of our youth, our gym must be upgraded to meet the challenges we face in serving more and more youth each passing year.

Through tremendous support from the City of Santa Maria, we received approval and necessary funding from a CDBG grant to move forward with the development of this vital project. Unfortunately, due to unexpected repairs and the cost of building supplies from the time the project was spearheaded to present, we are facing a significant increase in budgeted costs than was originally projected. Although the generous backing from the CDBG grant via the City of Santa Maria will cover the bulk of our total renovation costs, it does not allow for a few major structural repairs and upgrades, nor does it allow for ongoing maintenance and upkeep costs.

The vision for the gymnasium renovation project was to create a space not only for our youth members, but to support the collective needs of our community. New high-tech, impact absorbent flooring will provide for versatility of use and safety. Appropriate wall padding would protect against collision and provide for maximum sound absorption. New fresh and bright paint colors revive the once dark and gloomy space. The bottom line is the need to build a safe and multi-purpose gymnasium for our entire community.

Annual sponsorships of $1,000 to cover the cost of repairs, upgrades, and maintenance are being sought from community donors, businesses, and corporate entities. In exchange, your name/logo will be affixed to the newly painted gym walls for heightened visibility of your sponsorship. Remember, thousands of youth and community members enter our gym on an annual basis. That's cheap advertising to reach so many people at a nominal cost! We need a minimum of 50 sponsorships annually to meet our ongoing needs for future gym improvements and maintenance.

On behalf of the children we serve at Boys & Girls Clubs of Santa Maria Valley, thank you for your serious consideration!
