The Salvation Army Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Charlotte is pleased to announce it has received a $8,500 grant from consumer products company SC Johnson to support its Back to School efforts in Charlotte. The funds will go toward ensuring each Charlotte Boys & Girls Club member is prepared to return to the classroom, including providing school supplies, backpacks and more.
“SC Johnson is a great corporate partner and champion of youth in our community,” said Marty Clary, the executive director for The Salvation Army Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Charlotte. “We want to be sure that every child at our Clubs as the tools and resources to be successful in and out of the classroom, and these much-needed funds help to make that possible.”
Most recently, the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Charlotte partnered with SC Johnson and Save the Children for a community event in east Charlotte. Apart of the #100DaysofReading campaign, Save the Children and SC Johnson provided backpacks stuffed with supplies to children in the community, while the Boys & Girls Club supported the event with snacks, games and festivities.
“This partnership with SC Johnson makes a tremendous difference in the lives of the students we serve each and every day,” added Clary.
