Sun N’ Fun-draising! Boys & Girls Club of Webster-Dudley receiving summer help from Cumberland Farms
Convenience store will donate portion of Chill Zone and Farmhouse Blend sales to benefit youth club
(Dudley, MA – June 18, 2012) - Cumberland Farms is about to make life a little easier for the Boys & Girls Club of Webster-Dudley’s summer program.
For four weeks beginning on Wednesday, June 20, Cumberland Farms will donate 20 cents from every Chill Zone beverage, iced tea, and coffee (iced or hot) purchased at its newly remodeled store at 180 W. Main Street in Dudley to benefit local youth. The goal of the Boys & Girls Club’s summer program is to offer a variety of recreational, educational, and cultural activities for children as well as to provide experiences which give opportunities for choice, individual achievement, development of self-confidence and fun. Cumberland Farms aims to raise at least $1,000 for the Boys & Girls Club.
“This donation from Cumberland Farms allows us to extend summer recreational opportunities to families in our community, lending a hand to create opportunity for kids when they are out of school,” said Boys & Girls Club of Webster-Dudley Executive Director, Tony Poti. “We strive to ensure that our Club is a positive influence in the lives of our youth by instilling in them the importance of mutual respect, teamwork and being socially responsible.”
“We are proud to know this contribution will improve recreational and motivational opportunities for young people taking part in the Boys & Girls Club’s summer program,” said Ari Haseotes, President of the Cumberland Farms Retail Division.
This past year, Cumberland Farms donated more than $100,000 to support local organizations across the Northeast.
