The Boys & Girls Club of Truckee Meadows says some kids resenting a California Boys & Girls Club have aproached at least five homes in the downtown area asking for money in exchange for candy bars so that they may attend a “conference”.
The Boys & Girls Club of Truckee Meadows would like the community to know that this is not a local fund raiser and, most likely, not a legitimate Boys & Girls Club fundraiser. At no time will our members go door-to-door to solicit cash donations, nor will they call on the phone requesting donations. The only representatives for the Club that are allowed to ask for donations are active Board Members or authorized staff.
If you have experienced any of the above mentioned unauthorized solicitations, we would encourage you to call the Boys & Girls Club of Truckee Meadows at (775)331-KIDS and report any instance.
