to Support the West Texas Boys Ranch
West Texas Boys Ranch—Raising Boys… Building Men
The West Texas Boys Ranch (WTRB) was founded in 1947 by a group of businessmen who purchased 965 acres of land about 12 miles west of San Angelo, Texas. Today, on that same plot of land, the WTBR provides loving, caring families and homes for boys in need so they can become healthy, self-sufficient citizens.
WTBR is a Christian-based home community that welcomes boys ages 6-17 and gives them a safe environment in which to learn and grow. The charity has served thousands of young men in his 68 year history teaching them not only about family life and sharing in those responsibilities but also about ranching and farming, hunting, fishing, camping, horseback riding and caring for animals. The West Texas Boys Ranch’s slogan, “Raising Boys… Building Men” really sums up their mission.
WTRB is a qualified IRC Section 501 (c) (3) non-profit charity that is funded privately by individuals, corporations, organizations, businesses and foundations. Through its donors, the West Texas Boys Ranch has built a loving community for its residents. From remodeled military barracks as the first living quarters to the five homes the boys currently reside in, WTBR has depended on donations all the way. If you wish to make a tax deductible contributions, please visit WTRB at www.wtbr.org.
In an effort to give back to the community, ALON Brands is proud to support the West Texas Boys Ranch. Last year, ALON Brands donated a brand-new 2014 Ford Escape SUV to WTBR as part of Alon’s “Cars-4-Cause” program. The new car gave WTBR the ability to reliably and safely transport residents and staff. WTBR also participated in ALON Brands’ “Load the Code” contest last summer, giving the charity a chance to win cash. Overall, ALON Brands donated a total of $100,000 to community organizations last year through the “Load the Code” contest and in 2015, has helped raised thousands of dollars for local charities through other programs.
ALON Brands is proud to be associated with the West Texas Boys Ranch because of the real difference they make in the lives of boys each and every day.
