Building A New Club


By Ben Lyda

Buhl, Idaho ( KMVT-TV / KSVT-TV ) One small town in the Magic Valley has received a large donation to fund its Boys and Girls Club.

The Boys and Girls Club in Buhl has been around for over ten years and is growing fast.

Clear Springs Foods employs over four hundred employees, many with young children who attend the club.

"It's very important to the community for the development of the children. It's also very important for our employees, and it's a great benefit for them to be able to take their children to a productive environment after school or in the summer," explains Cally Grindstaff, Clear Springs Foods.

The Boys and Girls Club currently shares space with the Buhl Middle School, but in the coming weeks, construction will start on this very field.

"Finalizing a couple of things with construction and contracts, and the building will be located next to the middle school which is perfect, because all the schools are right there in that area," says Lindsey Westburg, Boys and Girls Club.

On Monday, a check was handed over from Clear Springs Foods to the Boys and Girls Club in the amount of 50 thousand dollars.

"Since 2004, they have actually donated over $100,000 specifically towards the Buhl project, so they have been a great partner of ours, and we are just happy to see this building come to fruition, and we couldn't be happier about our partnership with them," Westburg says.

A partnership for sure, which for Clear Springs, doesn't end here.

"We're going to continue to support the club financially, because it does take community support to continue the operation of a Boys and Girls Club," Grindstaff explains.

"Our partnership with Clear Springs has been amazing and we're happy to have them," Westburg says.

With this fifty thousand dollars, the club will soon be constructed and filled with smiling little faces.

The Boys and Girls Club of Magic Valley is now signing up for summer camps. Visit for more information.
