The BCC partners with the Patrick Heath Public Library (PHPL), the Boerne Area Democrats, and the Boerne Public Library Foundation to promote literacy by providing books and programs for at-risk children. Additionally, the BCC works with PHPL and the Boerne Family YMCA to facilitate an outreach program that brings literacy and sports activities to Boerne neighborhoods in need.
The BCC partners with area clubs and organizations to provide enrichment opportunities for children during the summer and school breaks. We promote these opportunities to eligible families and encourage parents to enroll their children.
Through our relationships with local agencies and churches, the BCC becomes aware of essential needs and organizes community donations on behalf of local families. Thanks to generous individuals in our community, we have been able to connect families in need with basic household goods including appliances, clothing, and furniture.
In an effort to respond to homeowner needs, the BCC works in partnership with local churches, individuals, and non-profit organizations, like Golfers Fore Others, to connect volunteers with specific home repair projects as they occur throughout the year.
The BCC typically organizes one workday each year in neighborhoods with homes in need of critical repairs. These days include volunteers working alongside the homeowners for cleanup and repair, coordinated children’s games and activities, and a shared meal with the volunteers and neighborhood families.
The BCC partners with Blue Santa, to support their Christmas gift program, to ensure that children in Boerne celebrate Christmas with a gift to open. As well, in partnership with the Kendall County Child Services Board, the BCC provides gift cards for birthdays to children in the CPS and foster care systems and residents of the Kendall County Women's Shelter and Meadowland campus.
