Give Joplin Day 2018 - Yes, You VAN!

The Boys & Girls Clubs of Southwest Missouri needs another passenger van to transport Club Members to the Club during our After School Program.  Currently, we use four vans to pick-up students from seven local elementary schools. Two vans take an additional trip.  Because the space is limited on the vans, some kids may wait an hour after school before they make it to the Club.  An additional van will help us get more kids to a safe environment quicker.

The van will also be used to take youth on field trips to local parks and nature centers as well as teens to tour college campuses and volunteer activities in the community.  Each trip allows the children to gain hands on experience  as they participate in activities and develop skills for the future. We were one out of 22 organizations selected by the Community Foundation of the Ozarks to partake in Give Joplin Day 2018.  Please help us reach our goal by donating on July 19th from 10am - 6pm at CauseMomentum.orgJust search Yes You VAN!
