LAFAYETTE, La. - To support afterschool programs across the country, JCPenney launched a nationwide philanthropic campaign that invites customers to round up their purchases and donate the difference to Boys & Girls Clubs. The Boys & Girls Clubs is one of the beneficiaries of the JCP cares campaign during the month of July that will benefit from the proceeds raised during the round up campaign. The JCP cares round up campaign will run July 1-July 31 in JCPenney stores across the country.
"With budget cuts in education, there's never been a more important time to support afterschool programs as a valuable community resource that helps to bridge the education gap," said Boys & Girls Clubs Chief Professional Officer, Chris Martin. "As customers shop for the Back-to-School season, we hope they will keep our mission in mind so that the social and academic learning opportunities we provide after school will continue to be available to students in Acadiana."
