For the fifth consecutive year, ACE employees in San Antonio chose their local chapter of Boys & Girls Clubs to be the beneficiary of funds raised during the Give A Little Campaign. This year, thanks to the generosity of ACE’s customers and employees, ACE was able to donate over $11,000 to the Boys & Girls Clubs of San Antonio.
“Our employees and customers continue to be passionate about supporting local organizations like the Boys & Girls Clubs of San Antonio,” said Eric Norrington, Senior Vice President of Public Affairs at ACE. “We’re proud to support organizations in the local communities where we have stores.”
