The Black Canyon Boys & Girls Club lends a helping hand


Throughout July, The Black Canyon Boys & Girls Club (BCBGC) collected 737 toothpastes, 548 toothbrushes, 353 containers of floss, and over 300 bottles of various toiletry items, from individuals and businesses in the community. These items were for donation to The Boys & Girls Club of the High Rockies. The Boys & Girls Club of the High Rockies is acting as an evacuation site for those impacted by the fires in that area and could use a little help with supplies.

The BCBGC would like to thank all those who donated supplies; your generosity is appreciated! A special thank you to Dr. Reardon at Black Canyon Dental and the Holiday Inn Express for donating the most supplies and winning two free tickets each to the BCBGC Crab Crack event on November 16th (more event details to be released in September).
