ACE Associates Raise $13,849 for Boys and Girls Club
The Boys and Girls Club is one of the seven charities that ACE associates selected to be recipients of the Give a Little Campaign, ACE's national in-store fundraiser.
This year, ACE associates raised $13,849 for the Boys and Girls Club of Arlington, TX thanks to the generosity of ACE customers.
"The Give a Little Campaign is such a great opportunity for associates to engage with a local charity that they are passionate about," said Region Vice President Carrie Strecker. "We've really enjoyed partnering with our local Boys and Girls Club."
The Give a Little Campaign is an annual fundraiser which, this year, is providing $358,000 to AdoptAClassroom.org, American Red Cross, Back on My Feet, Big Brothers Big Sisters, Boys and Girls Club, National Down Syndrome Society and the Stars Scholarship Fund.
"ACE's donation will help the Boys and Girls Club of Arlington carry out our mission to help the children in our communities," said Steve Wurm, Boys and Girls Club CEO. "We'd like to thank all ACE associates for their hard work and generosity."
The Give a Little Campaign is a part of ACE’s corporate-giving program, the ACE Community Fund. Since 2004, the ACE Community Fund has donated more than $8.5 million to charitable organizations throughout the nation and focuses on organizations that help children, support education and promote financial literacy in the communities where ACE has stores.
