Anaheim, California – Every year, nearly four million young people are served by Boys & Girls Clubs. 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.” This month until February 23rd, Ross Dress for Less (“Ross”) customers can make a monetary contribution at checkout to be donated to the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Anaheim-Cypress. Our Club is partnered with the Ross Stores at the Anaheim Plaza, Cypress Plaza Shopping Center, Buena Park Promenade, Cerritos Towne Center, and Long Beach Towne Center. The funds will be used to support Power Hour, an interactive after-school homework assistance program for members, ages 6-18.
“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 county. 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.” -Matt Young, Group Senior Vice President, Stores
