HOUSTON, Dec. 29, 2017 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Houston and Family Dollar surprised 10 Club families and staff members who have been impacted by Hurricane Harvey with $1,000 Family Dollar gift cards this holiday season.
All 10 families are still feeling the effects of Hurricane Harvey. Some are still living with family members and have completely lost their homes while others are back in their homes but have bare minimum to get back on their feet. When Family Dollar heard that many Boys & Girls Clubs were still suffering from the effects of Hurricane Harvey, they wanted to help this holiday season.
Family Dollar has been a strong partner of Boys & Girls Clubs for the past several years with their commitment and dedication growing bigger every year. In 2017, Family Dollar implemented two national giving campaigns – the Back to School Anthem social media campaign and a holiday season in-store register campaign that ended on December 26. Customers can still donate to Boys & Girls Clubs through Family Dollar at this link.
Continuing their support through the first week of January 5, Family Dollar is sponsoring Boys & Girls Clubs of America’s “Give the Gift of the Club” storytelling series on Boys & Girls Clubs of America’s Facebook page.
