Message from the Auxiliary President, Mrs. Sue Everhart
The Auxiliary is busy all year long with a variety of efforts and I invite you to join us, be it to volunteer your time, treasure, or talent. Use the website’s navigation menu to click on each event for more information. Not all events are collecting items all the time so do take a moment to see when the donation deadlines are (the Christmas Store is generally an exception – items are collected all year for it) and which campus locations are participating.
Please feel free to start a conversation with me about how you can get involved. You are important to the success of BCC’s purpose: “Enriching communities, one family at a time.”
To the hundreds of volunteers I am lucky enough to work with each year – THANK YOU. I truly appreciate all that you do to support our beloved Auxiliary and the children and families served by BCC.
You can reach me either on my cell phone at 301-514-8730 or leave a message for the auxiliary at 410-922-2100 x5473 or email firstname.lastname@example.org or my personal email email@example.com.

Thank you again,

Update on the exciting future of our BCC Auxiliary
We have had several meetings with BCC staff and Auxiliary officers as well as interested members. A number of changes are being implemented in order to help streamline the administrative responsibilities of the Auxiliary so that we can better support BCC programs which are expanding and experiencing transformation.
As we move forward together, BCC staff will help more with these administrative tasks (such as communication and gift thank you letters). Because of these changes, the Auxiliary volunteers will be able to do what you do best – making life more awesome for BCC youth! There will be fewer meetings (and less paperwork) and more opportunities to participate in “hands on” tasks to benefit children and youth and their families directly.
At the 2019 Annual Auxiliary meeting we ratified our new, streamlined, constitution and by-laws. One of our next areas of focus will be the creation of a new policy and procedure manual that captures “how” the Auxiliary operates. This document can be edited as programs and initiatives change throughout the year, making us more nimble. Placing this information in the constitution as it was done previously was difficult as changes required a vote at the annual meeting. The manual will also be a valuable training tool for new area coordinators and volunteers going forward.
In the coming months, we look forward to sharing more about the outcomes of our work and transformation. All input is welcome.
