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!
For our 1st quarter we have selected Special Olympics! Special Olympics provide year-round sports training and athletic competition in a variety of Olympic-type sports for children and adults with intellectual disabilities.
For our 2nd quarter, Autism Speaks is the worthy recipient! Autism Speaks is dedicated to improving the lives of persons with autism and their families to help change the future for all who struggle with an autism spectrum disorder.
For our 3rd quarter, we have chosen Save the Children! The Save the Children organization invests in childhood - every day, in times of crisis and for our future. They give children a healthy start, the opportunity to learn and protection from harm.
For our 4th quarter, Bob's Cafe Collections supports the Pajama Program! The Pajama Program provides new pajamas and new books to children in need nationwide, many of whom are waiting to be adopted. These two simple gifts of pajamas and books let the children know that someone cares - sometimes these are the only new things they have ever received.
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.
March of Dimes
Bob's Discount Furniture has been proud to support the mission of the March of Dimes to prevent birth defects, premature birth and infant mortality for nearly two decades. About four million babies were born in the U.S. last year, and the March of Dimes helped each and every one through research, education, vaccines and breakthroughs. Join our efforts to support the health of moms and babies by joining March for Babies in a city near you and participating in a March for Babies walk!
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.
Rocking The Road to Read With Bob's Outreach!
Every year within our footprint we share the love of reading in local children’s hospitals. Smiles and goodies are left behind with every visit, as our Outreach team dresses up as The Cat in The Hat and brings the newest Seuss book to life! Since 2014, the first year we created this amazing program with the support of Reach out and Read, we have visited dozens of hospitals, doctors offices and even schools performing the beloved book! If interested contact us…we would love to come your way! Learn more HERE!
Home is Where The Heart is
This program focuses on helping furnish children’s shelters in our communities. Prior to the opening of a new store, one shelter in the community chosen is randomly selected by the Pajama Program. The Pajama Program is a non-profit that we proudly support through our café collections campaign. Once the shelter is notified, they are asked to compile a wish list of needed items from our Bob's website. On the opening day of the new store, the children are treated to a ride in a stretch limo or Hummer for a shopping trip that they will never forget! After the ribbon-cutting ceremony, the children are free to touch, see and try out the new furniture that they have chosen. The highlight of the day is when the children learn that they can select one item for themselves. We want them to have something they can call their own when they move on to their new home.
