Carlsbad Resident and Disney Star Francesca Capaldi Visits Village Clubhouse 

The Boys & Girls Club of Carlsbad (BGCC) was recently visited by GenerationOn’s Celebrity Youth Ambassador and Disney Channel star Francesca Capaldi. The Dog with a Blog actress stopped by the Carlsbad Village clubhouse with 100 toys for BGCC members to be passed out during the holidays. GenerationOn has partnered with Hasbro for The Joy Maker Challenge, a campaign that engages students in meaningful, hands-on service projects during the holiday season. When asked about the visit BGCC Director Andy Purviance said, “Francesca’s visit and toy delivery couldn’t have come at a better time. We are in the midst of collecting toys so each of our members will receive a gift this holiday season, and the donation from Hasbro will have a huge impact on our efforts.” Francesca added, “I’m so pleased to serve as a Joy Ambassador for GenerationOn. It gives me the wonderful opportunity to meet amazing people, learn about others, and give back to the community in which I live – Carlsbad.”

BGCC has been providing programs and services to thousands of young people in the Carlsbad community since 1952. The organization is completely funded by local donors. To schedule a tour of the clubhouse, for more information about Francesca’s visit, or to learn how you can help visit or email
