Boost Mobile Donates $11,000 to Boys and Girls Clubs of Miami-Dade to Support the Summer Camp Literacy Program

Proceeds from Boost Mobile’s $1 Phone Days Promotion Benefit Boys & Girls Clubs Nationwide

(BUSINESS WIRE), June 24, 2013 - Boost Mobile:

 

WHAT:

 

Boost Mobile recently partnered with Boys & Girls Clubs of America to bring back its most successful handset promotion, $1 Phone Days. For each new customer who signed on from May 29 through June 2, Boost Mobile donated $1 to Boys & Girls Clubs. During $1 Phone Days this year, Boost Mobile raised more than $106,000 which will be donated to local Boys & Girls Clubs across the nation with an $11,000 donation locally to the Boys & Girls Clubs of Miami-Dade.

The donation to Boys & Girls Clubs of Miami-Dade will support their summer camp literacy program at all five of their clubs. The program addresses the "summer slide" that often occurs when kids are out of school during the summer. Every kid in summer camp will have a literacy class each day taught by a certified teacher. For more than a century, Boys & Girls Clubs have served nearly 4 million young people, through membership and community outreach, in some 4,000 Club facilities throughout the country.
