ROSS to “Open the Door to GREAT Futures” in Skagit County
ROSS to “Open the Door to GREAT Futures” in Skagit County. In-store giving campaign to provide funds to Boys & Girls Clubs of Skagit County
Every year, nearly 4 million young people are served by Boys & Girls Clubs. To celebrate these extraordinary efforts, Ross Stores, Inc. announced that it is partnering with Boys & Girls Clubs of America (BGCA) with a four-week program called, “Open the Door to Great Futures.” Beginning February 8th, Ross customers in Burlington, WA can make a monetary contribution at checkout to be donated to the Boys & Girls Clubs of Skagit County. The Ross “Open the Door to GREAT Futures” in-store giving campaign will run throughout the month of February.
“Ross is committed to supporting the youth in the communities we serve,” said Gary Cribb, executive vice president, Stores and Loss Prevention for Ross Stores, Inc. “In the month of February, we invite our customers to join us in donating to the Power Hour program to help youth develop the study skills they need to excel in their studies and beyond.”
“Power Hour is important because it provides members with an opportunity to complete their homework before even going home for the day, which means more time to spend with their families”, says Director of Operations for Boys & Girls Clubs of Skagit County, Noah Bannister. “Staff and volunteers are available to help members work on challenging math problems or practice their spelling. Not only is Power Hour a great place to get homework done but it’s also a quiet place to read a book. Power Hour happens 4 days at week, throughout the school year, at all of our Clubs. We are grateful to Ross, for their support of Boys & Girls Clubs and for their dedication to programs like Power Hour”
During February Ross stores invite customers to give at the register during the month of February to benefit Boys & Girls Clubs of America. 100% of proceeds raised at each store will benefit Boys & Girls Clubs. Ross will match donations up to $350,000. Every $3 donation helps provide one hour of homework help for a Club youth and $15 helps keep a kid safe after school today.
