The Boys and Girls Club of Kootenai County on June 22 received a donation of $90,000 from bankcda in partnership with Federal Home Loan Bank of Des Moines.

The funds will support the expansion of the Jordan Johnson Club in Post Falls. Construction began in December 2022 and is expected to be complete this September. The club has the Post Falls location as well as the Lola and Duane Hagadone Club in Coeur d’Alene.

The nonprofit’s mission is to enable all young people, especially those in most need, to reach their full potential as productive, caring and responsible citizens. Its vision is to provide experiences that assure success for every young person who walks in the door.

The club focuses on helping youth work toward high school graduation and planning for their future with an emphasis on demonstrating good character and citizenship as well as living healthy lifestyles.
