The Boys & Girls Club of Benton County recently received an entire tractor-trailer load of paper products from Kimberly-Clark, a long time supporter of the Club. The donation of nearly 700 cases is valued at nearly $20,000. According to Jacob Hutson, Chief Professional Officer for the Boys and Girls Club of Benton County, “With the recent announcement of lost funding from a state grant, this donation could not come at a better time to help save on costs of having to purchase these items for our four Club sites. We are so thankful for the longtime support that Kimberly-Clark has provided to the Club over the years.” Stephen Beringer, Vice President of Sam’s Club Customer Development for Kimberly-Clark and also serves of the Boys and Girls Club of Benton County Board of Directors, said Kimberly-Clark is proud of both our national and local relationship with The Boys and Girls Club. During these difficult economic times, the value of “giving” is even more important. This gift of Scott Towels and Viva Towels is another great example of how we can help the club and its members. This product will help defray operating costs of the four Benton County clubs, and let’s face it, kids get dirty, so they need a lot of paper towels to help clean up! We are proud of our relationship with the Boys and Girls Club of Benton County, and are glad we can help!”
