Scott County Boys and Girls Club to Launch the Dollar Project

The Scott County Boys and Girls Club Director, Amanda Falconer, has big plans for the organization’s future. Part of that vision includes a teen center, and a branch expansion into the City of Mansfield.

These plans do not come without a price tag, however, and thats where Falconer has been hard at work. She’s calling it the “Dollar Project.” Falconer plans to seek assistance from Tyson Foods in Waldron to help fund the project. Employees would have the option of designating a $1 donation per paycheck to benefit the club.

“It would be huge,” Falconer said. “We could do our remodels and the things we are needing to do.”

Falconer added that she would like to see a Mansfield branch, however funds have not afforded that expansion. “We want to grow the future $1 at a time,” Falconer added.

The club currently exists on donations and grants. However, Falconer sees the need for the Boys and Girls Club to be functioning more independently.

She added that they have recently joined forces with the 4-H organization and will be working in collaboration with them on programs like agriculture, gardening and archery.

“My goal in one year is to get our teen center going and be discussing an expansion into Mansfield,” Falconer concluded.
