*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.
It's hard to believe, but back-to-school season is upon us. In preparation for the new school year, parents are busy organizing outfits, purchasing school supplies, and getting back into the school year routine. As hard as we try to send our kids to school as prepared as possible, many children fall behind in their education before the school year even begins.
For more than 100 years, Boys & Girls Clubs of America (BGCA) has supported the academic success of our nation's youth. Each year, they help prepare nearly 2 million kids to succeed in school! Wow!! From providing quality afterschool programs, a caring mentor, or simply contributing notebooks and pencils, BGCA strives to enable all kids to achieve great futures!
I love the idea behind Boys & Girls Clubs of America and the way they enable young people to reach their full potential as productive, caring, responsible citizens. I have always been an advocate of this organization and was excited to learn more about their newest campaign and how we can help every child begin the new school year on the right foot.
BGCA has partnered with JCPenney for the 'JCPenney cares round up campaign'. In the month of July, if you round-up your purchase to the nearest whole dollar while shopping at JCPenney, you can help make a difference in supporting afterschool programs at Boys & Girls Clubs across the country. 100% of donations raised will go toward Boys & Girls Clubs across the country.
In shopping at JCPenney this month I have 'rounded up' and I hope you will as well. For more information on the BGCA and JCPenney 'Round Up Campaign' you can visit, here.
