HOUSTON (Jan. 29, 2016) — Bridgestone Retail Operations (BSRO) raised $1 million last year via its 2,200-plus retail stores for the Boys & Girls Clubs of America (BGCA).
The organization said it will use the donation to fund programming to promote safe and productive spaces for kids and teens.
BSRO President Stu Crum presented a $1 million check to BGCA this week at the BSRO National Business Conference in Houston. Youth from the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Houston's choir performed at the ceremony.
“At Bridgestone Retail Operations, we are committed to being the most trusted provider of automotive care in every neighborhood we serve, and I can't think of a better way to give back than supporting and uplifting local youth,” Mr. Crum said.
“Through our partnership with Boys & Girls Clubs of America, we are helping pave the way for great futures by providing these deserving kids with the programs and services they need to achieve their fullest potential.”
