Big 5 to donate 5 percent of sales to BHS Football Booster Club
BARSTOW • Big 5 Sporting Goods is donating 5 percent of total purchases from customers who present a special flyer, to the Barstow High School Football Booster Club until Dec. 20.
The contributions will go toward the club’s funds in preparation for next year’s Aztec’s football season, booster club parent Mike Carson said.
According to Carson, the booster club made sure every football player was fed before every home game or after every away game last season. Carson said several local businesses, including Sizzler and Del Taco, helped feed the athletes.
Carson said he and the rest of the booster club parents are thankful that a business such as Big 5 Sporting Goods is giving back to its local, young athletes.
“This sends a real positive feeling throughout the community and to our kids,” Carson said. “They are helping out a lot of our kids, because there are kids on our football teams who aren’t as privileged as others on the team. I can’t thank Big 5 enough for what they are doing for us.”
Carson said anyone who is interested in obtaining a flyer so the 5 percent can be donated to the booster club, can call him at 760-447-5412 and he will personally deliver the flyer.
Big 5 Sporting Goods is at 1312 East Main Street.
