2013 Lots2Give Program
Big Lots is here to make a BIG difference for schools across the country.
Imagine not being able to play your favorite sport, test your own science project, sculpt a work of art, read your favorite book or use up to date computer equipment. Today, thousands of kids across the country go to school everyday without these basic resources to enhance their learning experience.
Selected schools will have the opportunity to submit a short video & brief essay explaining why their school is in need of financial support. Winning schools will share $120,000 in cash prizes! Public voting begins June 10 & will determine the winners.
In addition, all participating schools will benefit from a Big Lots in-store donation program. You can help by donating $1 or $5 at participating Big Lots Stores. 100% of customer donations will go to participating schools.
Be a BIG difference. Change a child’s life $1 at a time. Donate at a local Big Lots store near you April 29 through July 7!
