Yahoo Inc. will is giving $25,000 to Boys Town to help the home for wayward children serve more children and families.

A presentation of the check will take place Tuesday on the Boys Town campus west of Omaha.

Boys Town was made famous by the 1938 Academy Award-winning movie "Boys Town" that starred Mickey Rooney and Spencer Tracy.

A written release from Boys Town says the institution helped 7,483 children last year through Boys Town Nebraska/Iowa's integrated continuum of youth care services.
