How Allstate’s Donation Will Make a Difference

June 16th, 2015     By Paul Blomenkamp, Boys Town High School Associate Principal and Athletic Director

Sports, Youth Sports

At Boys Town, we understand the important role sports can play in the lives of kids. As our own athletic program has grown, we’ve watched it play a vital role in the lives of abused and neglected children as a way to help build character, sportsmanship and self-discipline. That’s why we are so thankful to Allstate and all the #GoodHandsFans at the College World Series for the continued support of youth sports at the Village of Boys Town.

On Monday, June 15th, Allstate made a generous donation of $25,000 to benefit youth sports at Boys Town Nebraska. This gift will go a long way to make a difference in the lives of our kids.

The $25,000 from Allstate will be used in many ways, individually:

• New uniforms for our junior high basketball teams
• New soccer goals for our boys and girls soccer teams
• New PA/sound system for the main arena of our Field House
• John Deere Gator for our equipment specialist and certified athletic trainer
• End zone camera for our football field that will allow our coaches to film games and practice

As Boys Town’s athletic director, I can say first-hand how much of an impact this donation will make. As the items listed show, it will allow us to better prepare our kids for competition, as well as give them the best athletic experience we can.

The most important part of this donation from Allstate is the confidence it will bring to our kids. Many of the youth that come to Boys Town have never had an opportunity to play organized sports. This donation makes that possible for them to do so in a safe environment. For that, we are grateful.

At Boys Town, we pride ourselves on competing with character. Allstate’s generous donation of $25,000 to our athletic program will ensure we can do just that for many years to come.
