The Boys & Girls Club of Benton County is the recipient of a $220,000 grant from the Walmart Foundation. The grant will enable the Club to provide scholarships to children living in low income families. Through the grant, the Club will identify families who may be eligible for SNAP nutrition assistance and ARKids health insurance and assist them with the enrollment process. The funds will also provide a weekly summer breakfast and after school dinner for Club Kids’ families and expansion of the dental screening and Cooking Matters programs. The Club is extremely grateful for Walmart’s support of the kids who most need us!
