Shop With A Jock

BGCGSD AND THE JUNIOR SEAU FOUNDATION TEAM UP TO BRING HOLIDAY JOY TO SAN DIEGO YOUTH! 

On Tuesday, December 12, the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater San Diego (BGCGSD) partnered with the Junior Seau Foundation for their annual Shop with a Jock, a holiday event benefiting underprivileged youth in San Diego. 

Over 150 kids and teens were selected to participate in this magical community event. With a $100 gift certificate in hand and the guidance from a professional or local athlete, our Club kids had the opportunity to shop for their family this holiday season.

“It’s rewarding to see our community come together for the children of San Diego while continuing the legacy of Junior Seau.” BGCGSD’s Jenna Levasseur shared after the event, “It was a night dedicated to good deeds, holiday sharing, and a chance for our youth to give on to others.

Since 1992, the Junior Seau Foundation has awarded over $800,000 in scholarships to local San Diego students, and over $330,000 towards Junior’s Shop with a Jock program.

The event featured music, light refreshments, and demonstrated how the BGCGSD along with other non-profit organizations joined forces to change lives this holiday season.
