BJ’s partners with Crestview Elementary School

BJ’s Wholesale Club, Inc. recently announced a partnership with Crestview Elementary School through the organization’s Adopt-a-School (ADAS) Program, which assists schools by providing funds to enhance educational programs and curriculum objectives. 

BJ’s offers two versions of its ADAS Program: “Giving” and “GRADES”.

Schools participating in the “Giving” program receive a one-time donation to use toward discretionary programs such as field trips and special events, reading enhancement programs or other educational needs. The program also provides a complimentary BJ’s Membership and invitations to BJ’s-sponsored events that promote good citizenship or help build learning skills.

Crestview Elementary School is enrolled in the “GRADES” program, which will enable the school to work directly with BJ’s Community Relations Specialist Ruth Zajur to develop customized partnership plans focused on curriculum enhancement, community involvement and fundraising.

Founded in 1996, the ADAS program will provide assistance this year to a total of 196 schools in the 15 states where BJ’s Clubs operate. For information on Adopt-a-School visit bjs.com/adopt-a-school.

Short Pump Rotary volunteers help with rebuild, repair


On June 13, the Short Pump Rotary Club partnered with Schnabel Engineering for a day of volunteer work with Rebuilding Together Richmond. Team members (among them [from left] Chris Rufe, Melissa Abraham, Rick Naschold, and Micky Ogburn) completed a variety of repairs and home improvements ranging from painting and landscaping to cabinet installation and fence building.

“It was a privilege to be involved in this project," said club president Melissa Abraham. "The homeowner kept thanking the volunteers, but I think all of us would agree we are the ones who actually benefited. It was an opportunity to help a community member, fellowship with great people and improve our handyman skills." > Read more.

A triumphant return

Pixar’s ‘Inside Out’ is a magnificent, emotional ride

Explaining the nuts and bolts of Pixar’s new, exciting, innovative Inside Out – really digging into the film’s shape-and-color explanation of the human mind – would take up the entirety of this review. And probably three or four more (if movies had instruction manuals, Inside Out’s would be the size and general poundage of a cinder block).

It’s a complicated movie. So here’s the gist, in as simply-put terms can be. > Read more.
