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.
