WICHITA FALLS (KFDX/KJLT) — On Monday morning the Boys and Girls Club of Wichita Falls announced in a press release from Executive Director Randy Cooper that it would be temporarily closing all locations in Wichita Falls.

The clubs will utilize multiple on-demand/online/virtual platforms, something director of programs Cara Herr-Sauceda says they are ready for.

“We will be rolling out between 10 and 15 videos a week where the kids can still see their staff members faces and still have those personal connections going during this time and hopefully bring a little bit of piece and comfort to the kids,” Herr-Sauceda said.

The press release went on to state that programs will be available through multiple on-demand, and online platforms that support academics, character development and healthy lifestyles.
