Great News About Summer Lunches

The Boron Kids Outreach Program is excited to announce that the Muroc Joint Unified School District will be serving lunches thilunch-colors summer at the Boron High School Cafeteria! Lunches will be served Monday through Thursday from 11:00 am to 12:00pm. All children in the community under the age of 18 are welcome to come eat lunch FREE of charge.

We want to thank Dr. Mike McCoy (Superintendent), Kevin Cordes (Director of Instruction) and Trevor Walker (CBO) of MJUSD for doing the hard work to make this happen for the kids in the community.

For the last 5 years BKOP has made sure the children of the community were fed lunch during the summer time. This program was supported by local business, and parent volunteers. Much of the cost was carried by individuals and families in the community. We are so grateful for all those who have contributed so much for the kids in and around Boron.

Now even though the lunch program will be handled by the School District, BKOP still has a lot planned for the summer! We will still do our back to school clothing and backpack give away, as well as some fun events to be announced like the brand new Summer Flag Football program! (Details will be announced soon)

If you would like more information about about BKOP and how you can help the children of this community please call us at 760-762-5149.

If you have clean, gently used children clothes you would like to donate for the back to school give away please call 760-373-0801.

BKOP Summer Program to Begin June 3rd

lunch-colorThe Boron Kids outreach is set to kick off the 2013 summer on Monday June 3rd with the “Summer Lunch Program”.

There will be a few changes from last year. This summer all the meals will be served at First Baptist Church fellowship hall located at 12255 Boron Ave. Also BKOP has decided not to work with Community Partners for food donations, instead we are opting for a more “home cooked” meal approach.

There will be a meeting on Monday 20th at K&L at 4pm to work out the final lunch schedule and other events. If you would like to find out how you can help or make a donation please contact Sarah Howard at 760-373-0202 or Pastor Sherman Burkhead at 760-762-5149.

Thank You Boron for Helping to Make Water-Park Day a Success!

You should have seen the eyes of the kids as we rolled out the 20ft wide by 100ft long slip-n-slide! And then we set up the bounce house which is also a water slide. It was so much fun to watch their excitement and as they realized that they were gonna get to play and play hard!

July 4th marked our second annual Water-Park-Day. Not only did we have the attractions listed above we also had water-balloon baseball, a watermelon eating contest, hot dogs, and otter pops! This event was free to all the local kids and teens of the Boron Area.

Over 150 kids and teens from the community came out to cool off and have some fun before it was dark enough for fire works.

BKOP is grateful for the volunteers, families, and local businesses that made this all possible. And to express our gratitude we created this video!
