Boscov’s – Friends Helping Friends Day – Oct. 17, 2017

For the second year in a row, Crossroads Center for Children will be participating in Boscov’s Friends Helping Friends Day. This special day is celebrated by Boscov’s stores nation-wide to benefit the many non-profit organizations that are working hard to care for the causes that are important to us all.

Last year, we raised $245. and met new people who learned about the school for the very first time. Several have since become stronger advocates for Crossroads.

This year our goal for Friends Helping Friends Day is to raise at least $300 and provide information to at least 30 new people, giving them handouts and subscribing them to our e-newsletter. Money raised, as with our other fund-raising events, will go directly to running the highly specialized programming that Crossroads is so well-known for.

We need your help to do this.

You can help by:

  • Pre-selling passes. If 30 people could sell 10 passes each, our monetary goal will be easily met! Ask your family, friends, neighbors, co-workers and anyone you can, to please buy one.
  • Purchase passes now.
  • Volunteer that day. We will have a Crossroads table at the Clifton Park store from 8:45 am to noon. We will sell passes at our table, engage shoppers in learning about Crossroads, provide them with information that suits their individual interests, and encourage them to provide their email in order to have them receive our e-newsletter and follow our special school.

The passes:

  • Each pass provides a 10%, 15% or 25% discount for the shopper.
  • The pass is good only on October 17th, 2017 from 9 a.m. to 11 p.m.
  • The pass is good at any Boscov’s store.
  • Each pass is only $5.00, and Crossroads keeps 100% of the money for the passes we sell.
  • Each pass includes chances to win prizes – for example a $500 shopping spree – by filling out a section on the pass and putting it in the “Ballot Box” at the store that day.
  • Each pass makes a thoughtful gesture to give to a friend, in case you are unavailable to use it yourself.

Crossroads Center for Children is counting on your help! Please email to help in any of the ways above! Your kind support is greatly appreciated!
