True Value Company, through its True Value Foundation, recently announced a national partnership with Boys & Girls Clubs of America.
During the first year of the partnership, True Value Foundation will support Boys & Girls Clubs of America by piloting local retailer engagement activities. In 2015, the foundation will roll out system-wide tools to connect additional True Value retailers with local Boys & Girls Clubs for volunteer and fundraising opportunities. The partnership kicked off at True Value’s Reunion in Atlanta with a community service project where retailers were paired with local club youth for activities and mentoring.
“True Value Foundation’s mission is to provide resources to improve the lives of children in the communities we serve,” said Brent Burger, True Value Company board of directors chairman and True Value Foundation president. “Our partnership with Boys & Girls Clubs of America is a natural fit. It unites our retailers around a common philanthropy, and provides them with an opportunity to engage with local clubs and give back in a variety of ways.”
“We are honored to be selected as True Value Foundation’s first national partnership and look forward to partnering with its retailers locally,” said Chad Royal-Pascoe, national vice president, corporate partnerships for Boys & Girls Clubs of America. “Numerous local clubs will benefit through retailers’ volunteerism and donations. Together, we will enable youth to achieve great futures.”
