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. To follow the latest updates on our efforts, click here!
Bob’s Café Collections for Schools
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’. Thousands of dollars are sent back out the door every month, to support local schools. Bob’s Outreach focuses on one state each month to target these efforts.
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 High School Heroes
The Bob’s Discount Furniture $100,000 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. Participation is as easy as it is life-changing!
Nearly every two seconds, someone in America needs blood. High School’s that sponsor American Red Cross blood drives make vital contributions to the community by helping to maintain an adequate blood supply. Become a High School Hero and your school could win a scholarship for up to $8,000. For more information on how you can become a High School Hero, track your school, or for complete rules please click here.
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. Entries are submitted via a simple entry form on mybobs.com. Nine lucky schools, one from each of the nine states within which we have store locations, win $5000 each! That's a total of $45,000 donated in support of Cultural Arts Programs in the schools every year! Look for this exciting contest on mybobs.com right around back to school time!
