Every year, nearly four million young people are served by Boys & Girls Clubs across the nation. Nearly 1,700 kids have a safe place after school at the Boys & Girls Clubs in Mecklenburg and Union Counties. 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. 2, customers in Charlotte can make a monetary contribution at their local Ross Dress for Less location during checkout to be donated to the local Boys & Girls Club this February. To find the nearest Ross location, visit www.rossstores.com/store-locator.
“We are proud to support the Boys & Girls Clubs of America during our annual campaign in February,” said Gary Cribb, Executive Vice President, Store Operations and Loss Prevention for Ross Stores, Inc. “We invite our Ross customers to join us in donating to the Clubs and helping youth develop the skills they need to have a bright future.”
“The Boys & Girls Club exists to help students in our community – especially those who need us most – become productive citizens,” said Marty Clary, Executive Director of The Salvation Army Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Charlotte. “We are thankful for Ross Stores and their commitment to helping local children realize their true potential.”
