Boys & Girls Clubs of America is Upgrading its Clubs’ Recreation Areas Nationwide Skateboarding Superstar Rob Dyrdek’s Foundation Kicks off The Renovation Program with a Revamped California Skate Park

 Lunchables Lunch Combinations announced today a “renovation program” aimed at upgrading and refurbishing Clubs for Boys & Girls Clubs of America (BGCA) as part of its partnership with the organization.  To kick off the program, professional skateboarder and MTV Star Rob Dyrdek’s SLS Foundation and the Lunchables brand unveiled a newly upgraded skate park at the Boys & Girls Club in Chula Vista, Calif.

The skate park now features new obstacles including a kicker, pump bump, mailbox, roller and bank to ledge.  Scores of Club kids, ranging from rookie to veteran skateboarders, spent the day grinding rails, catching air and practicing ollies, kickflips, and heelflips. 

The new renovation program embodies Lunchables and BGCA’s shared goal of promoting fun and active lifestyles for kids by providing much needed resources for a wide variety of facility upgrades and renovations. The Lunchables brand has an ongoing commitment to BGCA.  This year marks the second year of their five-year partnership and includes a $200,000 per year donation over five years, up to $1 million.  

“Every year, Boys & Girls Clubs serve nearly four million kids during the out-of-school time with impactful programs and positive mentors,” said Joe Fragnito, vice president of marketing, Lunchables Lunch Combinations.  “Our partnership with Boys & Girls Clubs of America means a great deal to us and we are proud to contribute to an organization with a history of providing vital resources to kids including tutoring, sports and other programs that help kids thrive.”
