CARSON CITY, Nev. – Ross Stores, Inc. announced that it is partnering with Boys & Girls Clubs of America with a four-week program called, “Help Local Kids Learn.” Beginning Feb. 4, customers in Carson City can make a monetary contribution at their local Ross Dress for Less location during checkout to be donated to the Boys & Girls Clubs of Western Nevada this February.

“This campaign has raised more than $2,000 for our Club since 2014,” Katie Leao, chief professional officer for the Boys & Girls Clubs of Western Nevada, said. “Your donations have provided dedicated homework time for more than 650 Club kids in our five locations in Carson City and Carson Valley, and helped introduce STEM activities to our Learning Center. We’re so grateful for your support and for this great community partnership.”

Donation tags papered the Ross Dress for Less® store in Southgate Mall Carson City during the store’s “Help Local Kids Learn” campaign in February 2016. The 2017 campaign kicks off on Feb. 4.

Gary Cribb, executive vice president, Stores and Loss Prevention for Ross Stores, Inc., said Ross Stores, Inc., invites customers to give at the register during the month of February, with 100% of proceeds raised at each store benefitting local Boys & Girls Clubs. Every $3 donation helps provide one hour of homework help for a Club youth, and $15 helps keep a kid safe after school for a day.

“In February, we invite our customers to join us in donating to the Boys & Girls Clubs of America,” Cribb said. “Our company believes in giving back to our community, and we are proud to support the Power Hour program at the Club to help youth develop the skills they need to excel in school and beyond.”

The Boys & Girls Clubs of Western Nevada has been a cornerstone of the community since opening its doors in 1993. Serving some 1,800 youth, Boys & Girls Clubs of Western Nevada provides a safe, structured and positive environment for young people after school, during holidays and summer vacation in six locations around Carson City and Douglas County.
