Stage 30 Days of Giving benefits Volunteers for Youth

CLAREMORE —

Claremore Stage Store team members selected Volunteers for Youth as the recipient organization for their 30 Days of Giving campaign during the month of March and the store manager recently presented the local non-profit with a $966 check.  
“Our mission is to give back to the communities we serve and, in that spirit, 100 percent of donations collected in our store during March have been donated to Volunteers for Youth,” said local store manager, Sandra Stangland.
“We selected Volunteers for Youth because they are a grass-roots, local organization completely focused on serving the needs of our Rogers County youth.  I am a new volunteer mentor with the organization and I encourage others to explore how they can help,” Stangland added. 
“We are honored and deeply grateful to have been selected and we pledge to diligently use the funds donated to increase and enhance our youth-serving programs,” said Mendy Stone, Volunteers for Youth director.
“We were also given the opportunity to raise funds internally by exchanging a 30% off Stage savings pass for any individual donation and that allowed us to raise an additional $466,” Stone added.
Stage Stores raised over $896,000 for 700 local organizations across the country through its 30 Days of Giving.
