Ross Dress for Less’ in-store giving campaign to benefit Boys & Girls Clubs of the Sequoias
VISALIA – Every year, nearly four million young people are served by Boys & Girls Clubs. To show their continued support in preparing today’s youth for a bright tomorrow, Ross Stores, Inc. is partnering with Boys & Girls Clubs of America with a three-week program called, “Help Local Kids Learn.” Beginning July 31, customers in Tulare County can make a monetary contribution at their local Ross Dress for Less (Ross) locations in Visalia and Tulare during checkout to be donated to the Boys & Girls Clubs of the Sequoias through August.
“This campaign will directly help kids at local clubs across the county,” Ross’ group senior vice president Matt Young said. “BGCA and Ross’ strong partnership of 14 years is rooted in both organizations’ shared commitment to help young people reach their full potential as productive, caring, responsible citizens.”
Ross Stores invites customers to give at the register during the month of August to benefit Boys & Girls Clubs of America and their local club. One hundred percent of the proceeds raised at each store will benefit local Boys & Girls Clubs. Every $3 donation helps provide one hour of homework help for a club youth and just $15 helps keep a kid safe after school.

Boys & Girls Clubs of the Sequoias is focused on helping all young people, especially those who need us most, become responsible, caring and productive members of society. Boys & Girls Clubs were established in Tulare County in the 1990s when Exeter and Visalia community leaders responded to the need for a positive place for local youth to spend free time after school. Today, local clubs provide a wide span of activities for local youth, varying from STEM to sports.
