Rolling Thunder - Boys and Girls Club

Janice Fontaine is the Director of the Missoula County Boys and Girls Club. This year Rolling Thunder has teamed up with the Boys and Girls Club. All proceeds from the event will be donated to B & G's after school program. Janice was kind enough to write a short piece on the program and where your money will be used. Just $20 provides a child a week of after school activities!

The Boys and Girls Club of Missoula County After School program serves over 100 children each afternoon at four program locations. As part of a network of more than 4,000 youth centers across the United Statesand the world, the Club serves at-risk youth within Missoula County. Although the Club serves many low and very low-income families, a large part of our constituency are middle-income families whose resources are stretched. These families, the “working poor” of our community, are in need of our services, as they are not eligible for other assistance programs. The Club’s programs are working to fill this need by providing affordable quality after-school, summer and evening programming for youth in our community. Our programs strengthen families by providing positive, fun and secure places for children and teens to socialize, recreate and learn during at-risk hours. We strive to provide the best service and programming options that we can to our members and their families. We are the lowest priced after school option in the county, and we are also the best after school option in the county. However, we are in need of financial help to keep our programs operation and growing. Each donation of $5.00 gives a child a wonderful safe afternoon in one of our after school programs. A donation of $20.00 will provide a week of fun and educational activities in a safe and positive place. $100.00 will provide a month of exceptional out of school learning and fun for a child who would otherwise go home alone to an empty house.

Thank you so much for you support. The Boys & Girls Club of Missoula
County, the Positive Place for Kids and Teens!
