Clubs Closed Thru End of May

April 27, 2020

Dear Boys & Girls Club Families & Community Supporters:

The Club is currently closed during the State of Illinois’ shelter in place order, which is being extended by Governor Pritzker through the end of May. While we don’t yet have a date certain for when our Clubs will re-open, we are hard at work putting the necessary things in place to be able to open safely and quickly once the governor’s order is lifted (e.g. new plans, policies, procedures & programming compliant with social distancing and public health best practices).

Boys & Girls Club of Rockford has always been there for our community’s children and their families. Today is no different as our community grapples with the impact of the coronavirus pandemic.

One way that we’ve tried to be there for our members, their families and the community is through daily distribution of food and academic materials from three of our clubhouse facilities:

  • Blackhawk Unit
  • Fairgrounds Unit
  • Orton Keyes Unit

We will continue communicating with you on our website, social media and other sources.

In the meantime, please continue practicing social distancing and follow community developments and access links to resources on the City of Rockford’s webpage at

Please know that we have your families and the children of our community in our thoughts and prayers.


Clifford Stoner
