In this episode, we focus on one of our longstanding Lixar community partners: The Boys and Girls Club of Ottawa. We’ll chat with Executive Director Colleen Mooney about the organization itself, it’s impact on Ottawa-area youth, and what you can do to get involved. The BGCO is an organization that helps youth in marginalized communities, and one that we’re proud to support.
Why do we support the BGCO? Well, a cultural pillar here at Lixar is community. We feel it’s important to give back to the neighborhood of which we’re a part by volunteering at the McGahn clubhouse, in our own backyard of Ottawa east. We’ve hosted cook and paint nights, basketball games, and started initiatives like a homework club and the Lixar Lightning – a minor league baseball team that teaches kids about teamwork and sportsmanship.
