Welcome to Gaspar Cares
Gaspar Insurance is committed to the communities where we do business because it’s where our people are: our employees, our customers, and our partners. Gaspar Cares is our effort to highlight the work being done to strengthen our community by local nonprofits, community partners, and other business leaders.
Boys & Girls Club of the West Valley
Before COVID-19, The Boys and Girls Club of the West Valley had about 550 San Fernando Valley youth stream through the doors and participate in academic, fun and recreational programming each day. During this time of stay at home and social distancing, they have kicked off their Respond, Recover, Resilience COVID-19 Campaign to help raise necessary funds for the Club. While the Club is currently closed, they are still serving youth and families through their Grab N Go Food Program/Goodie Bags and VCLUB virtual programming. Please find below information about the campaign and programs and how you can support their cause.
