Recently, I had the opportunity to go to Dick’s Sporting Goods store. Being that our girls aren’t very sporty we had only gone to the store a few times and not very recently. Much to my surprise there were so many things in the store that we purchase at other stores currently.
While I was delighted with the amount of product they had, the shoe walls, and athletic clothing galore, what really stood out to me was the way that Dick’s is giving back to the community through sales in-store and online.
Did you know that Dick’s Sporting Goods has it’s own organization? Sports Matter, their motto is that “Every kid deserves a chance play”. This organization helps local schools, non-profit organizations, and sports teams/leagues. I don’t know about you, but I LOVE when large corporations have that motto.
In an effort for shoppers to be able to give back to children who may not normally be able to participate in sports Dick’s has several ways we can contribute to Sports Matter:
- Round up at the register – I challenge you to round up even more than the next dollar
- Purchase from the family-minded DSG line – it’s super cute already, coordinates with the entire family and gives a percentage to Sports Matter
- Purchase a partnering brand – often larger name brands will donate a percentage of the sale of their items to benefit Sports Matter
- Donate online – take the initiative whether or not you shop at Dick’s regularly choose to give back to the community by donating to the Sports Matter organization
As I challenge you to give back I am also led to do the same. Funds from this post will be donated to benefit local schools in the greater Charlotte, North Carolina area.
While I love giving back to the community, I also understand it is nice to be able to get some perks as well. Some things I learned while I was at Dick’s is that they price match other retailers. This is a great way to get items you need in one place and know you’re getting the best price.
For your convenience you can purchase online and pick up in the store. This is a great way to shop if you know what you want without having to search for it in the store.
And one last tip for all of you shoe buffs out there, Dick’s offers shoe releases on the newest name brand shoe lines, so you have one more place to go to find the “hottest shoe” that you’re looking for.
In looking for your one-stop shop for Back to School clothing and gear, check out Dick’s Sporting Goods and give back for Back to School.
