Save Mart and Lucky Shoppers Can Donate at Registers Today
Modesto, August 13, 2014 – Save Mart and Lucky Supermarkets are asking shoppers to support their neighborhood Boys & Girls Club for Back to School by purchasing a paper icon for $1.00 at checkout. The campaign runs from August 10 through August 31 and the goal is to raise $150,000.
Save Mart and Lucky Supermarkets are partnering with Boys & Girls Clubs of America to support kids who need us most. Boys & Girls Clubs are a safe place where young people can learn and grow after school and during the summer – all while having fun. It is the place where many kids’ great futures start each and every day. To learn more about BGCA or to find a local Club, visit www.GreatFutures.org or #GreatFutures.
“For many working parents, there is always concern for a safe place for their children to go after school. Local Boys & Girls Clubs offer kids a safe place to learn new things, get help with homework, and make new friends,” said Alicia Rockwell, Public Affairs Director, Save Mart and Lucky Supermarkets. “We hope our shoppers value the good work of these local Clubs and can join us to help support them.”
