EL DORADO, Ark., April 1, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Murphy USA Inc. (NYSE: MUSA) is pleased to announce that they have entered into a national cause marketing partnership agreement with Boys & Girls Clubs of America. Central to this agreement, Murphy USA will launch a multiple-phase cause campaign across their nearly 1,500 locations in 26 states, the first of which will begin April 1.
"Giving back is part of our broader mission and commitment to our team members and customers. We are passionate about providing opportunities for the next generation," said Andrew Clyde, President and CEO of Murphy USA. "That's why we are proud to be a national partner with Boys & Girls Clubs of America, supporting Clubs in the areas where we operate through our 'Great Futures Fueled Here' campaign. Our partnership will help ensure that Boys & Girls Clubs of America have the funds necessary to provide youth in the communities we serve the essential tools for cultivating a successful future."
Every year, more than 4.7 million young people are served by Boys & Girls Clubs of America, a youth advocacy organization working to ensure that all kids and teens have the same opportunities to succeed in life. After-school programs at Boys & Girls Clubs support the learning young people do during the school day. They ensure all youth have the resources they need to achieve a great future – including a safe, supportive environment and caring adult mentors.
"In these difficult times, it's critical that kids and teens get the resources they need to continue their education and navigate through the new challenges they may be facing," said Jim Clark, president and CEO, Boys & Girls Clubs of America. "We are so thankful to have Murphy USA as a new partner. Their support will help us continue to provide high-quality programming to our youth, especially those who need us most."
The cause campaign will run in phases, with Phase 1 running from April 1 – May 5 and Phase 2 beginning August 5. During the campaign, customers can choose to make a monetary contribution of $1, $2 or $5, or round-up their purchases to the nearest dollar amount at checkout.
