Geebo.com Announces Partnership with Boys and Girls Club
Geebo.com and Local Youths Team Up to Benefit Area Children
SACRAMENTO, Calif., Aug. 23 /PRNewswire/ -- The Sacramento Boys and Girls Club Keystone Teens have agreed to select the children's charities that Geebo.com will support each year, announced Greg Collier, Geebo.com's president. Geebo.com is a local online classified service. A cornerstone of its creation is to help the community by donating a portion of its profits to local charities that help children. "Who better to counsel us on the needs of children than young people," said Collier. As part of this collaboration the Keystone Teens will be required to develop selection criteria, create publicity plans to let organizations know about the program, select which charities to support, and distribute the funds. "We recognize that today's youths are tomorrow's leaders. This will give them first-hand experience of the many needs of the community that they live in," said Collier. "I am not aware of any other youth group that advises companies on where to make their charitable contributions. I don't think anyone ever asked them," said Jesus Naranjo, Boys and Girls Club Teen Director. "This is a win- win for both Geebo.com and the teens. Geebo.com gets a perspective of children's needs from young people and the teens get a chance to develop many new skills, help their community and become more socially responsible adults." As part of membership in the National Boys and Girls Club teen group, the youths are required to perform community service work. The work they do for Geebo.com will be their contribution. It is anticipated that solicitation for proposals will begin in late August. For more information visit www.geebo.com . CONTACT: Greg Collier of Geebo.com, 916-215-6001, email, Greg@geebo.com.
