QuickChek, Boys & Girls Clubs of America team up to help kids thrive this back-to-school season

NEW JERSEY – Continuing its dedication to the communities it serves, QuickChek is supporting local school children on a path toward a successful new school year.

The iconic fresh convenience market chain is inviting customers to round up their purchases or donate $1, $3, or $5 in-store now through September 30th, 2022 to support Boys & Girls Clubs of America’s 2022 Back-to-School campaign.

From providing academic support and homework help to social emotional wellness tools and resources and offering a safe place with positive mentors, Clubs provide new opportunities to help every young person reach their full potential.

“We’re proud to partner with Boys & Girls Clubs of America in helping the school children in our communities thrive as they head back to school this year,” said QuickChek Divisional Vice President Don Leech.

QuickChek enjoys a long history of giving back to the neighborhoods and communities it serves. With each new store opening, the company donates money to one of the many local youth organizations that helps keep that community going. Hundreds of thousands of dollars are donated to organizations throughout the New York metropolitan area each year.

QuickChek also supports more than 160 youth sports groups in the region.

The company has raised more than $6.2 million dollars since 2009 to support a variety of causes benefiting children, families and military veterans.

As a part of the Back-to-School promotion, the Whitehouse Station, NJ-based retailer is among several corporate partners helping Boys & Girls Clubs to support America’s youth through donations, employee volunteer events, transportation solutions, homework help and more, and encourages the public to do the same.

“We know that young people need the support of Boys & Girls Clubs more than ever, and we are committed to meeting youth where they are as we create new access and opportunities to help kids and teens thrive in an ever-changing world,” said Jim Clark, President and CEO, Boys & Girls Clubs of America. “Local Clubs will continue to meet young people where they are, remaining dedicated to keeping youth on track through safe places, caring mentors and life-enhancing programs.”
