FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) – The Boys and Girls Club of Fort Wayne received COVID-19 equipment from an area manufacturer.

Kautex Textron, a manufacturer of plastic gas tanks for major automakers, has manufactured safety screens for high use areas at The Boys and Girls Clubs of Fort Wayne. The various screens, created for high traffic areas, will be utilized to protect staff, members and teachers from FWCS who participate in a virtual education program at the club.
