Save money and donate to charity at Hudson’s Bay Company (HBC) and Home Outfitters! On September 16th, customers can purchase a $5.00 ticket for a discount on almost all purchases. Seventy percent of the proceeds will aid Boys and Girls Clubs of Canada through the HBC Summer Brain Gain.
The HBC Summer Brain Gain helps bolster learning retention by engaging students with educational activities during the summer months. These activities combat learning loss, which occurs during gaps in student’s education. Disadvantaged students are particularly vulnerable to the regressive effects of learning loss.
Boys and Girls Clubs run summer programs that align with HBC’s goals. In fact, we provide extracurricular learning opportunities for young people throughout the school year. There are many fun ways for students to enhance and sustain their education.
Let’s help HBC motivate students to learn outside of the classroom! Buy your tickets at The Bay and Home Outfitters in Kelowna, Penticton and Vernon on the 16th. Okanagan Boys and Girls Clubs will be at The Bay in Kelowna and Penticton to say hello and answer questions!
