Family Dollar has been a national corporate partner since 2014 and is committed to supporting BGCA's mission and local Boys & Girls Clubs through its annual in-store cause campaign, corporate donations, and vendor partnerships. In addition, Family Dollar encourages relationships between its stores and local Boys & Girls Clubs in the community. Throughout the year, when a new store opens or there is a grand re-opening, Family Dollar partners with the Club closest to the store location to receive a $5,000 donation. In 2020, we were thrilled to welcome Dollar Tree to the partnership as well.
Dollar Tree and Family Dollar have partnered to provide to support Boys & Girls Clubs of America’s signature leadership program, Youth of the Year. This year Dollar Tree and Family Dollar were recognized as a Diamond sponsor for Southeast, Military & National Youth of the Year program along with providing $100,000 in scholarships for Southeast Youth of the Year participants. By investing in the program, Family Dollar and Dollar Tree will enable more opportunities for youth to develop their leadership skills. The Youth of the Year program helps youth gain the ability, confidence, and motivation to lead meaningful change within themselves and others.
