BGCCW Partners with Staples for Summer Academic Enrichment
The Boys & Girls Clubs of Central Wyoming has been awarded $1,500.00 by Staples Foundation, the private charitable arm of Staples, Inc., through a program called 2 Million & Change that allows Staples associates around the globe to direct more than $2 million in donations each year.
“Generous support from Staples will be invested in academic enrichment programs like summer reading, educational field trips and financial literacy. Each year, more than 1,000 children attend full day summer programming at six locations in Natrona, Converse, and Johnson Counties. We offer interactive field trips, engaging physical activities, and academic enrichment that fosters leadership skills and builds self-confidence in a positive and uplifting environment,” said Ashley Bright, CEO, BGCCW.
Created in 2012, the 2 Million & Change program is a philanthropic initiative which allows Staples associates around the world to direct funding to non-profit organizations focused on academic education or job skills. In 2016, Staples awarded more than $2.3 million in grants to 1,000 local organizations in support of education and job skills programs, including job readiness for homeless individuals, career exploration for high schools students, academic scholarships, mentoring and more.
“Staples is committed to giving back to the causes our associates are passionate about,’ said Regis Mulot, chief human resources officer, Staples, Inc. “The 2 Million & Change program helps associates make an even greater impact on the organizations they support in their local communities.”
