EL PASO- For the next two weeks shoppers at the JCPenney are invited to turn small change into “Pennies From Heaven” by rounding up their purchases and donating the difference to a local afterschool program.

Boys & Girls Clubs of El Paso is one of 1,100 afterschool organizations from across the country matched with a local JCPenney store that will benefit from the proceeds raised during the pennies from heaven campaign.

With a new school year already underway, we shouldn’t forget about the resources needed to keep kids involved in a positive learning environment after school,” said Boys & Girls Clubs of El Paso, Jose Jaime, Chief Professional Officer.

The afterschool program offered at Boys & Girls Clubs of El Paso serves more than 1,100 students each year by involving them in programs that help kids develop social skills, provide opportunities to be physically active and achieve academic success in school.
