The American Eagle Outfitters Foundation gives back to communities by supporting student related programs focused on youth development and conserving the environment. When American Eagle Outfitters decided to partner with a new national charity in 2005, Big Brothers Big Sisters was a natural fit. Since then, thousands of American Eagle Associates have taken part in Bowl for Kids’ Sake activities throughout the United States and Canada. Since the partnership’s inception, the American Eagle Outfitters Foundation has raised over $800,000 for Big Brothers Big Sisters nationwide.
“Our corporate philosophy is ‘Live Your Life’ and we believe Big Brother Big Sisters helps young people to do just that,” said Joe Kerin, Executive Vice President of Stores and President of the American Eagle Outfitters Foundation. “It is a powerful partnership that has unlimited potential and we look forward to benefiting the youth of tomorrow through these exciting projects for years to come.”
