For $40 a year, Boys & Girls Clubs provide children with a safe place to be after school, get help with their homework and get a free meal five days a week. The cost to run the programs and care for the kids is about $500 a year per child, so the extra money must be obtained through fundraising.

The goal is to raise $20,000. Wheeler Toyota and Toyota Corp. have provided the club with matching funds of up to $10,000.

Boys & Girls Clubs are located in Grants Pass, Illinois Valley, Talent and White City.
