Santa Monica Place Disney Store Collecting Supplies For Local Boys & Girls Clubs:

With support from the Disney store at Santa Monica Place, the Boys & Girls Clubs of Santa Monica kicks off the back-to-school season with the National Supply Drive and an in-store and virtual call for school supply donations to prepare kids and families in the Santa Monica community for academic success in the 2013-14 school year.

Aaron Young, President & CEO of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Santa Monica, said while more than one million American youth fail to graduate from high school each year, the truth is that many kids are falling behind in school, and in life, before they even get started.

“Kids need basic school supplies, and through the National Supply Drive, these donations will help us provide the needed supplies for back-to-school to keep kids on track for academic success and a great future,” Young said.

Through Sept, 3, the community can help the Boys & Girls Clubs of Santa Monica put thousands of school supplies in the hands of Boys & Girls Club members by donating supplies at Santa Monica’s local Disney store, located at 395 Santa Monica Place, in collection bins.

Disney store employees will also be coming to the Boys & Girls Clubs of Santa Monica’s main branch on Sept. 5 at 4 pm to do a Learn to Draw demonstration and talk to Club kids about staying on track in school.

The National Supply Drive is part of Boys & Girls Clubs of America (BGCA)’s Tools for Back-to-School initiative, a national back-to-school campaign designed to raise awareness about the need for community-based Boys & Girls Clubs that support academic success for youth during critical out-of-school hours.
