  • The Boys & Girls Clubs of Benton and Franklin Counties will provide emergency childcare to support first responders, healthcare workers, essential community personnel, and those parents who must work to maintain employment during the school closure. The club does recommend that, if at all possible, kids stay home in keeping with public health safety standards.
