United Boys and Girls Clubs of Santa Barbara

CIO Solutions is proud to support the IT of such a great organization that works so hard to support the community! See what Michael Baker, CEO of the United Boys and Girls Clubs of Santa Barbara, had to say about their recent accomplishments:

Hello United Boys and Girls Clubs of Santa Barbara Fans!,

I had to share this great news with all of you. You all know how impactful the food program has been at our Westside Club. Every single weekday, because of our awesome partnership with the Santa Barbara School District’s Food Services Department (headed by Nancy Weiss) we are serving anywhere from 100-175 dinners per night. In case you didn’t know, at our Westside club 97% of the children that attend daily are on the free or reduced lunch program at their local schools. That means because they live below the poverty line that when they go to school they get breakfast and lunch provided for them. Now, thanks to this great partnership, they have been receiving dinner nightly now too.

As if that wasn’t good enough news! I am absolutely thrilled to let you know that starting in April they will be providing the same service to our Goleta Club nightly. This does not cost the Boys and Girls Club a dime and anybody that is 18 or under eats a healthy dinner for FREE! If any of you want to see this incredible collaboration in action please come down for a tour any Monday-Friday between 4:30-6:00pm.

I only ask one small favor, If any of you know Nancy Weiss please tell her how much you appreciate her helping our club kids. It is because of people like Nancy that I always say, “I love my job!”

All my best,

Michael Baker
Chief Executive Officer
United Boys & Girls Clubs of Santa Barbara County
