Boys and Girls Club Back to School Initiative!


It is Back to School time!! Although I have no children, I work at a school and know about how busy and exciting this time of the year is. Classes start in two weeks!!

At our school, we start sending out lists of supplies needed and other information now so parents and kids can be prepared. There are always so many things to do for the new school year, that being organized is the key. At this time,we also start gathering up supplies for the kids who might not have the resources available to buy their own.

Unfortunately, more and more we see the numbers of needy kids rising. It's not only where I work but it is happening everywhere. That is why this year, I am supporting the Boys and Girls Club of America (BGCA).


The BGCA and Disney have partnered to launch the Tools for Back to School Initiative. Through the initiative, BGCA will donate school supplies for needy kids. All you need to do is visit the Tools for Back to School site and play the pop-quiz game. For every correct answer, the BGCA will donate supplies!

BGCA also offers different educational content and tip sheets for parents to download and use. You can find them on the left hand side of the BGCA site under the Get Ready header! This is a great resource for parents or teachers.

BGCA has also partnered with jcpenney. This August you can join jcp cares. Join and for every purchase you make, jcpenny will round up your purchase at the register to benefit BGCA. How cool is that? I know that all those donations will make a difference in the lives of many kids!

I am so happy to be able to share this initiative with my readers! This is a great opportunity for you all to help he BGCA this year! And if you are free on Thursday, August 23rd from 3-4 pm EST, Mom Central will be holding a Boys and Girls Twitter Party. This is a great way to learn more about the BGCA Back to School Initiative!


Disclosure: I wrote this review while participating in a blog tour by Mom Central Consulting on behalf of Boys and Girls Club. I received a promotional item to thank me for taking the time to participate.
