JC Penney Teams Up With Boys & Girls Club

| April 03, 2011, 05:46 PM | 0 Comments

From April 13 – 26, shoppers at the JCPenney at Annapolis Mall are invited to round-up their purchases to the nearest whole dollar and donate the difference to the Boys & Girls Clubs of Annapolis & Anne Arundel County (BGCAA) to support quality afterschool programs in their community. BGCAA has partnered with JCPenney to provide children in need with access to life-enriching afterschool programs that foster their academic, physical and social development.

“The availability of affordable afterschool programs continues to be an important community objective in order to meet the needs of working parents,” said Reginald Broddie, Chief Professional Officer, BGCAA. “As customers shop in April, we hope they will keep our mission in mind by rounding-up their purchases to benefit a local cause.” All funds raised from JCPenney’s “Round-Up” campaign will make it possible for more local youth to participate in BGCAA’s afterschool programming.

Recent studies show that one out of every four children is still unsupervised after school. More parents seek the resources to enroll their children in a beneficial afterschool program that help kids develop social skills, provide opportunities to be physically active and achieve academic success in school. JCPenney’s continuing support and commitment to the afterschool cause and has made it possible for more children to participate in positive afterschool environments nationwide.
