Every year, nearly 1,700 young people are served by The Salvation Army Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Charlotte. To celebrate these extraordinary efforts, Ross Stores, Inc. announced that it is partnering with Boys & Girls Clubs of America with a four-week program called, “Help Local Kids Learn.” Beginning Feb. 4, you can make a monetary contribution at Charlotte area Ross Dress for Less location during checkout to be donated to the Mecklenburg and Union County Clubs. By simply donating at the register, customers can help make a big difference for kids in our community.
“In February, we invite our customers to join us in donating to the Boys & Girls Clubs of America,” said Gary Cribb, executive vice president, Stores and Loss Prevention for Ross Stores, Inc. “Our company believes in giving back to our community, and we are proud to support the Power Hour program to help youth develop the skills they need to excel in school and beyond.”
Ross and Boys & Girls Clubs of America have partnered together for over 10 years. Just last year The Salvation Army Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Charlotte received $20,000 from Ross Stores, Inc.
“Ross Stores is a tremendous partner for our local Boys & Girls Clubs,” said Marty Clary, executive director of The Salvation Army Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Charlotte. “Each contribution helps us provide a safe, positive place for kids in our community after school.”
100% of proceeds raised at each store will benefit local youth. Every $3 donation helps provide one hour of homework help for a Club youth. If you would like to donate online, you can do so here.
