Bloomingdale’s stores nationwide are pledging $75,000.00 to Mentoring USA, the non-profit organization that provides mentors to children, as a part of Bloomingdale’s “Fashionable Fundraiser” on February 25. Customers will have the opportunity to shop for a cause, enjoy special offers and meet Mentoring USA representatives who will provide information on how to make a difference in their own community and become part of the ‘mentoring movement’ sweeping the nation.
Mentoring USA pairs at-risk youths across the country with inspirational adult mentors who can guide them in developing better self-esteem, creating healthy relationships and making positive life choices. The “Fashionable Fundraiser” will allow Bloomingdale’s to be a part of Mentoring USA’s continued success by providing the much-needed funds that make it possible to continue their important programs.
Mentoring USA, a New York City-based nonprofit, is a structured, site-based, mentoring organization that began as the first state-sponsored, one-on-one mentoring program in the country back in 1987. The program was founded by then First Lady of the State of New York Matilda Raffa Cuomo and became a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization in 1995. Mentoring USA has provided mentors for more than 5,000 children since its inception.
This event is free and open to the public. For more information on Bloomingdale’s Fashionable Fundraiser to benefit Mentoring USA, call 702.277.2448 or 702.784.5400.
