At the beginning of each school year, every BJ’s Wholesale Club partners with a local school to enhance students’ educational experience. A representative from BJ’s works closely with educators and teachers at the school and identifies ways in which BJ’s can offer support. Now in its 17th year, BJ’s Adopt-a-School program has provided more than $1.5 million in funding to thousands of schools across the country.
