Ross Stores, Inc. announced it’s partnering with Boys & Girls Clubs of America with a four-week program called, “Help Local Kids Learn.” Beginning Saturday, customers in Carson City can make a monetary contribution at their local Ross Dress for Less location during checkout to be donated to the Boys & Girls Clubs of Western Nevada in February.
“This campaign has raised more than $2,000 for our Club since 2014,” Katie Leao, chief professional officer for the Boys & Girls Clubs of Western Nevada, said. “Your donations have provided dedicated homework time for more than 650 Club kids in our five locations in Carson City and Carson Valley, and helped introduce STEM activities to our Learning Center. We’re so grateful for your support and for this great community partnership.”
Gary Cribb, executive vice president, Stores and Loss Prevention for Ross Stores, Inc., said Ross Stores, Inc., invites customers to give at the register during the month of February, with 100 percent of proceeds raised at each store benefitting local Boys & Girls Clubs. Every $3 donation helps provide one hour of homework help for a Clubs youth, and $15 helps keep a kid safe after school for a day.
“In February, we invite our customers to join us in donating to the Boys & Girls Clubs of America,” Cribb said. “Our company believes in giving back to our community, and we are proud to support the Power Hour program at the Club to help youth develop the skills they need to excel in school and beyond.”
