ROSS DRESS FOR LESS® TO HELP LOCAL KIDS THRIVE IN THE PEE DEE AREA 

10th Annual In-store fundraiser to provide support to Boys & Girls Clubs of the Pee Dee

FLORENCE, S.C. – Every year, over three million young people are served by Boys & Girls Clubs across the country. To show their continued support in preparing today’s youth for a brighter tomorrow, Ross Stores, Inc. is partnering with Boys & Girls Clubs of America with a three-week program called, “Help Local Kids Thrive.” Beginning February 10, customers in FLORENCE can make a monetary contribution at their local Ross Dress for Less (“Ross”) store during checkout to be donated to the Boys & Girls Clubs of the Pee Dee Area, through March 3.

“This year is special. It marks our 10th annual in-store fundraiser to benefit local Boys & Girls Clubs. The funds raised will directly help kids at Clubs nationwide by supporting Power Hour, a homework tutoring program, nationally sponsored by Ross. We are proud of our strong, long-standing partnership with Boys & Girls Clubs and look forward to coming together with our customers and associates to ‘Help Local Kids Thrive,’” said Matt Young, Group Senior Vice President, Ross Stores.  

Rooted in a shared commitment to help young people reach their full potential as productive, caring, and responsible citizens, this annual fundraiser helps to actualize the dreams of many local kids and teens. 

  • This February, Ross Stores is inviting customers to give at the register to benefit Boys & Girls Clubs of America from February 10 to March 3. Ross will match the first $400,000 raised! 
  • 100% of the funds raised at each store will benefit Boys & Girls Clubs, with 80% being directed to a Club in the community. 
  • Ross is the national sponsor of BGCA’s Power Hour, a program that provides kids and teens the opportunity to do their homework in a safe place, in-person or virtually, with support from Boys & Girls Club staff. 
  • Every $5 donation helps provide one half hour of homework help for a Club youth. $15 helps keep a kid safe after school. 
  • This is the 10th annual Ross Stores, Inc. fundraiser for Boys & Girls Clubs. Together with its customers, Ross has raised and donated more than $46 million to support BGCA and Power Hour.
