When Pride Stores approached Square One about a fundraising campaign they wanted to engage in for Square One, both organizations were excited about an opportunity to raise funds and awareness of the work Square One is doing throughout the community.


The locally owned chain of gas stations and convenience stores launched a campaign where customers were encouraged to purchase a “square” for one dollar, in support of the work that Square One does with children and families throughout the region. The paper squares were placed on display at stores throughout the region.


Funds raised from the community totaled $7,300 and were matched by an additional $2,700 from Pride to bring the total contribution to $10,000.


“We are proud to be supporting the programs and services that Square One offers to ensure that children and families have the tools they need to be successful,” says Pride’s Bob Bolduc. “Selling squares and displaying them in our stores was a visible and productive way to help raise funds for the organization and create greater awareness of the work they are doing. I want to thank all of the customers who helped make this campaign a success.”
