Shop, Save, Support

 

Alamedans can help support local youth simply by shopping at Old Navy in the upcoming weeks. The store’s Back2School Donation Drive is currently underway. From now until Wednesday, Aug. 8, Old Navy customers can make a monetary contribution of $1, $3 or $5 at checkout to be donated to the Alameda Boys & Girls Club. Each customer will receive a $5 bounce-back coupon when he or she contributes $5. All proceeds raised at the Alameda store will benefit the Alameda club.

Every year nearly 4 million young people are served at Boys & Girls Clubs. To celebrate these extraordinary efforts, Old Navy announced it is partnering with Boys & Girls Club of America. Last year, the Old Navy donation drive raised nearly $1 million to support local clubs, Torch Club and volunteer engagement across the country. In Alameda, every $3 donation helps provide one hour of science, technology, engineering and mathematics programming for a club youth, while $15 helps keep a kid safe after school today.

Old Navy is located at 2212 South Shore Center A. To contribute to the Alameda Boys & Girls Club call 522-4900, email info@alamedabgc.org or visit www.alamedabgc.org.
