Classroom Wish Lists Come True with the Adopt-a-School Program at Crown Point Elementary

This year $100 billion in federal stimulus money for education will run out for states that are already strapped for cash.  As an effort to conserve resources, states may make the difficult decision to forgo funding for basic classroom essentials. BJ’s understands that school supplies are a crucial element in fostering a child’s education.

Every year, through the company’s Adopt-a-School Program, BJ’s sponsors a school in each market where a club is present. This year BJ’s adopted Crown Point Elementary in Jacksonville and will grant some of its wishes from the “classroom wish list”.
