Join Bob in support of Lunch Break - Smilow Rainier Vista Virtual Tables
My virtual table
As a donor, County Board Treasurer, and member of the Advisory Board of one of the 11 Clubs, I personally see how every donation makes an impact – ensuring that kids who come through the doors at Rainier Vista Boys and Girls Club have a positive and safe place to get a healthy meal, academic support, mentorship, fitness, and programming in STEM, leadership, music, dance, art, and much more.
It costs roughly $1500 a year to service one club member. Please keep this in mind as you consider a gift within your means and stretch a little if you can as your gift will help us support kids to achieve their dream — especially those who need us the most. Below are just a few examples of ways your generous donation can impact kids.
Thanks for caring!

About the Joel E. Smilow Clubhouse and Teen Center at Rainier Vista
Kids may walk through the SRV doors for the fun we offer, but we do far more than entertain these youngsters. Our nationally recognized programs and activities impact children in three essential ways:
- Academic success—Improving grades, reducing high school drop-out rates, and teaching kids to see themselves as learners.
- Good character and citizenship—Encouraging community service, reducing juvenile crime rates, and instilling an attitude of engagement.
- Healthy lifestyles—Teaching healthy behaviors, reducing drug use and childhood obesity, and fostering a positive self-image.
It is the vision of the SRV team that any club member who wants to enhance or change their life direction or outcomes could be a part of our club and the great programming that goes on for ages 5-19.
