Gamestop and it’s scholarship program (Power to the Scholars scholarship program) have chosen 40 employees to get $2,500 each.
President of Gamer Fund Mike Buskey made a statement.
“Our objective with this program was to encourage our employees and their dependents to achieve their personal and professional goals through higher education.”
“At GameStop we are all about protecting the family, so, we are honored to be able to assist the scholarship recipients in their broader educational journeys, and look forward to seeing where they lead.”
While surely there are some higher ups at Gamestop probably do care about their employees educational goals and assisting them is the right thing to do. However as the saying goes Philanthropy is the newest form of PR.
This is still good for gamestop employees, the scholarship program was created in 2012 and has given more than $485,000 to them.
