Marshall models BCI's new Kindness is Contagious T-shirt

Marshall K. enjoys meaningful employees at BCI in St. Peters. Proceeds from this month's T-shirt sale will benefit the non-profits' facilities and programs for adults with disabilities. 

(ST. PETERS, MO) Boone Center, Inc. (BCI)—a nonprofit that improves the lives of adults with disabilities through employment opportunities—is holding a special T-shirt fundraiser June 8-26. The shirts, which are printed with the phrase “Kindness is Contagious”, are available in six colors.

“The adults with disabilities we serve always show tremendous kindness, even when they couldn’t come to work these past few months due to Covid-19,” said CEO Ron Kloppenburg. “Our hope is that something as simple as a T-shirt will raise spirits and just encourage people to give and spread kindness in our communities.”

The shirts cost $20-24 each and are available in adult sizes Small-4XL. Your order will ship 2-3 weeks after the sale closes, or you can pick it up from BCI’s main office in St. Peters. All proceeds will benefit the non-profits’ employment facilities and programs for adults with disabilities.
