Every year, nearly four million young people across the nation are served by Boys & Girls Clubs. Here in Charlotte, nearly 1,500 members find a safe place during out of school times at the Club. To show their continued support in preparing today’s youth for a bright tomorrow, Ross Stores, Inc. is partnering with Boys & Girls Clubs of America with a three-week program called, “Help Local Kids Learn.” Throughout February, customers in the Charlotte area can make a monetary contribution at their local Ross Dress for Less (“Ross”) location during checkout to be donated to the local Boys & Girls Club.
“Ross Stores is very excited to host the sixth annual Help Local Kids Learn in-store campaign for the Boys & Girls Clubs. This campaign will directly help kids at local Clubs across the country. BGCA and Ross’ strong partnership of 14 years is rooted in both organizations’ shared commitment to help young people reach their full potential as productive, caring, responsible citizens,” said Matt Young, Group Senior Vice President for Ross Stores.
“The Boys & Girls Club exists to help students in our community – especially those who need us most – learn and grow,” 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.”
