We are having hundreds of students in our building each week, not just at events, but literally hundreds of people study and drink coffee EVERY DAY in our BCM. We are so very grateful to be a safe haven for isolated students during this time. Our new building has ample space to keep students socially-distanced, but no one could have anticipated the need for so many smaller-seating areas or as much expenditure on cleaning supplies as a global pandemic demands. We desire both to keep our students safe and to continue to accommodate as many students as possible.
Here are three specific and unique things you can help with:
We need more tables & chairs both inside and outside (covered patio) to provide as much socially-distanced seating as possible. (Estimated Cost: Around $200-500 per item)
We need supplies like disposable masks and cleaning supplies to help negate COVID-19. We are obligated by the City of Norman to provide free masks. (Cost: $50 per week)
Disinfectant Mobile Fogger: (Cost: $500)

Study Tables & Chairs
We have 100s of students studying in our building everyday. We would like to offer more space to spread out. To do this we would like to add durable and attractive tables and chairs.
$200-600 (EST. PER ITEM)
We throw lots of parties-with-a-purpose over the first couple months of school. They include: board game nights, late-night pancakes, video game tournaments, and more!
Coffee for Outreach
We offer free coffee to any freshman who wants to fill out a contact card and visit our building. We only need to cover the cost of coffee and cups. This has been one of the most successful outreach methods we have ever done!
NEW BCM - APPAREL
As a way to help get our name more well-known on campus, we give away BCM shirts to our leadership students as well as some of the freshmen OR we sell shirts, hoodies and sweat shirts at cost in order to have students wearing our name on campus.
COVID019 Safety Supplies
We are taking all the necessary precautions to help prevent spreading COVID-19, including stations for sanitization in our building, masks, lots of signage and supplies for extra cleaning.
