The Boys & Girls Club of LeFlore County will enjoy staff benefits thanks to a $6,000 donation from the Arvest Foundation.

Help develop good saving and spending habits with an interest-baring savings account for kids.

The gift was announced recently at the Boys & Girls Club of LeFlore County, with Suzie Bigler and Juda Allen from Arvest Bank on hand to present a check to Boys & Girls Club of LeFlore County CEO Arielle Perry.

“As we work each day to provide our young people with a safe and positive environment, we cannot begin to describe our gratitude for the gift the Arvest Foundation has given us to improve what we are working to do,” Perry said. “The resiliency of our youth is an incredible sight to behold and when people give to our organization and further allow us to continue this work, they are giving to the future of our community because they are helping to better what is available for our young people. Gifts to our local Boys & Girls Club are generational in outcomes and we can’t thank the Arvest Foundation enough for recognizing that with this donation that will help upgrade our facility.”

“We are pleased to present this donation on behalf of the Arvest Foundation to the Leflore County Boys & Girls Club,” Bigler said. “The club gives back to the Leflore County community through the services it provides to our children, the future of our area. This donation is just one of many we have made throughout the area. It demonstrates the foundation’s ongoing commitment to the organizations in our community that are making a difference.”
