SPARKS, NV - One thousand kids from the Boys and Girls Club of Truckee Meadows will now have the opportunity to attend the club's summer camp thanks to a generous gift from a local business.
Surrounded by hundreds of kids, Tom and Ryan Dolan of Dolan Automotive presented the club with a $20,000 check Wednesday morning.
"We wanted to give the money to the Boys and Girls Club so a couple of disadvantaged kids could enjoy the summer and not have to sit at home," Tom Dolan said.
Mike Wurm, the Chief Professional Officer for the Boys and Girls Club says it's donations like this that keep them going.
"We're now able to offer the program to kids at low cost, or in some cases, no cost at all," he said. "We wouldn't be here without the support of the community."
At the summer camp kids will be able to participate in many different activities including dance and sports, as well as the club's regular all-day summer schedule.
