Bob’s Outreach is on a mission to help as many schools and non-profits in our community as possible! Our Outreach Team and Van are out and about making our cities and towns a better place with each and every stop! From surprising schools with huge checks to rolling up our sleeves at soup kitchens, we are dedicated to helping worthy causes. Here's a short list of just a few of the many Bob's Outreach Programs that are near and dear to our hearts.
Bob's Café Collections for a Cause
In the Café of each store, a larger than life statue of Bob proudly collects thousands of dollars every month. The collections are driven by our loyal and generous customers who choose to give back to their community, while enjoying free goodies in our Café. Each quarter we select a worthy non-profit to be the recipient of all monies donated by YOU in every Bob's Café chain wide! Bob's matches 100% of your Café Collection donations and gives that directly to the non-profit. So...the more you give, the more we give! It's a win-win!
This quarter we've selected Special Olympics! Special Olympics provides year-round sports training and athletic competition in a variety of Olympic-type sports for children and adults with intellectual disabilities. This gives them continuing opportunities to develop physical fitness, demonstrate courage, experience joy and participate in a sharing of gifts, skills and friendship with their families, other Special Olympics athletes and the community. A very worthy cause indeed! CLICK HERE to learn more!
Random Acts of Kindness
Random Acts of Kindness give additional aid to schools and programs for children. At least one Random Act of Kindness is fulfilled, each month. Giving varies, depending on need. Requests are driven by the community. Bob's Outreach has proudly supported Heavenly Productions over the years... And why? They beat to the same drum we do at Bobs...Heavenly Productions Foundation is a 501c-3 not for profit charity whose mission is to help children in need & in distress. for more info.
Bob's High School Heroes
The Bob’s Discount Furniture $250,000 High School Heroes Scholarship Program is a win-win for students and the community! High school students can help save lives while earning scholarship money with the American Red Cross and Bob’s Outreach High School Heroes Scholarship Program.

Outreach is Active!
Walks, talks, events! If our Bob's Outreach team can make it, we will be there!! Whether March of Dimes walks, school visits or rolling up our sleeves at soup kitchens, our amazing team is there. The list of charitable events we support is long and continues to grow each and every day. We mean business.
Celebrate the Arts
Budget cuts are everywhere, especially in the schools. Programs for the Arts are the first to go. Our desire to combat the cuts and help schools keep, and grow, their Cultural Arts Programs, spurred the development of our hugely popular Celebrate the Arts Contest. The contest takes place at the start of each school year and entries are submitted via a simple entry form on mybobs.com. One lucky winner is awarded a $25,000 grant to support Cultural Arts Programs in their school! Look for this exciting contest on mybobs.com right around back to school time!
