Retailers Partner with Boys & Girls Clubs of America

Donations of goods and services prepare kids for back-to-school—whatever that may look like!

Boys & Girls Clubs of America launched its 2020 Back2School cause campaign in partnership with more than a dozen retailers around the country. As millions of kids and teens are gearing up to return to school, whether virtually or in-person, the youth advocacy organization is working to ensure that all kids have the same opportunities to succeed in life.

“Back to school will look a lot different this year for America’s kids,” says Jim Clark, president and CEO of Boys & Girls Clubs of America. “But even in uncertain times, Boys & Girls Clubs are here to support kids and teens, providing a safe place with meals, school supplies and virtual or in-person programs with positive mentors. I want to give a huge thank you to this year’s Back2School partners. Their support will help Clubs do whatever it takes to ensure kids, families and communities have what they need to navigate the upcoming school year.”

Throughout the Back2School promotion, corporate partners are supporting Club youth by donating school supplies, galvanizing their employees to volunteer with local Clubs while adhering to social distancing guidelines, and engaging the public to participate in the cause campaign.
