Recognizing the significant challenges confronting today’s youth, BGCA and Bridgestone Retail Operations partnered in 2015 to help drive Great Futures.
Since 2015, Bridgestone Retail Operations (BSRO) has supported Boys & Girls Clubs of America (BGCA) through its initiative, Driving Great Futures. With the help of “Bosses” donating at register and key vendor partners, Bridgestone has raised over $15.3 million to support BGCA. The organizations share a national footprint and are making a tremendous impact together in local communities. The partnership helps fulfill BSRO’s vision of being the most trusted provider of tire and automotive care in every neighborhood they serve.
Since 2018, Bridgestone’s donation of new vans and grants to make critical repairs to organization’s existing vehicles has helped Clubs meet their transportation needs and further ensure young people’s safety.
In 2020, BSRO raised more than $13.5 million, of which they redirected $1.9 million to support the Boys & Girls Club COVID -19 Relief Fund providing critical technology grants, as well as transportation grants to Boys & Girls Clubs most in need across our shared geographies.
In 2021, Bridgestone Retail Operations (BSRO) will continue to Drive Great Futures by providing grants supporting van, transportation, technology, and hometown grants to Clubs.
Every day, 15 million kids leave school with no place to go.
