I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Boys & Girls Clubs of America. I received a promotional item as a thank you for participating. The opinions expressed are my own and were NOT influenced in any way.
Next month many children will be returning Back to School or just starting school! Alot of children will come home after school to an empty house, but many will have the most awesome opportunity to go to the Boys & Girls Club of America! The Boys & Girls Club of America is the perfect place for children, they provide a safe place for children to learn, grow, and they provide programs designed to develop future leaders. For more than 100 years, the Boys & Girls Clubs of America has enabled the most young people in need, to achieve great futures as productive, caring, responsible citizens. Today, more than 4,000 Clubs serve some 4 million young people annually through Club membership and community outreach.
I'm a Boys & Girls Club of America, Back to School Ambassador! I haven't really had any ties with the Boys & Girls Club of America, until now. BGCA (Boys & Girls Club of America) has partnered with JCPenney, for the JCPenney Cares Round Up Campaign. In the month of July, JCP invites customers to round up their purchases to the nearest dollar. This will help make a difference in supporting after school programs at the Boys & Girls Clubs across the country. Just think a 100% of donations raised will go towards BGCA! They have already raised $707,977! Isn't that awesome? I will definitely do my shopping at JCP, to help give all the boys & girls an awesome opportunity to do something special with their lives! Can I count on you to help?
So, be sure to shop at your local JCPenney or jcp.com! Your purchases will be rounded to the nearest whole dollar and donated to the Boys & Girls Clubs to make a difference. Funds raised at checkout will go toward supporting BGCA’s More Members More Often initiative. The initiative focuses on attracting more young people to join the Club, motivating existing members to increase their participation and retaining youth as members over longer periods of time.
