Who: Giant Tiger
What: The discount retailer has partnered with the Pinball Clemons Foundation to raise funds for marginalized youth.

Customers can donate $2 at checkout to support the campaign at participating stores across the country until Feb. 26.
"Giant Tiger stores are committed to supporting the communities we serve across the country," said Alison Scarlett, head of public relations and communications and co-chair of DE&I at Giant Tiger Stores Limited, in a statement. "We are proud to be announcing our partnership with the Pinball Clemons Foundation during Black History Month and are looking forward to collaborating on different outreach initiatives with this incredible organization. Our stores are raising funds to support programs, which include scholarships and bursaries, mentorship and outreach, and services that inspire these students to grow and become strong future leaders as they transition from community to career. With the generosity of our customers, we can create positive change in the communities we call home."
