Stampede Donates to Boys & Girls Club

BOISE, Idaho, December 2, 2013 – The Idaho Stampede Community Foundation donated $3,300 to the Boys & Girls Club of Ada County in order to refurbish their gym floor.

At last Saturday’s game, the Stampede planned to donate $25 to the Boys & Girls Club for every point the Stampede scored. After winning 108-80, the Stampede would have given $2,700 to help their long-time community partner. Instead, the Stampede ownership group donated the difference in order to cover the total cost of $3,300 to refurbish the floor.

Over 4,000 Ada County youth, ages 6-18, participate as members of the Moseley Center, Meridian Clubs, and summer programs in Kuna. They benefit from trained, caring, professional staff and volunteers who give them guidance, encouragement and the tools they need to grow into responsible, productive and caring adults.

As the first professional sports team to establish a foundation in this state in 2003, The Idaho Stampede is committed to providing programs and opportunities that help “even the score” for disadvantaged youth. The Foundation has given back over one million dollars in cash, goods & services and in-kind donations through over seven hundred plus community outreach events.
