(NASDAQ: FIVE), the trend-right, extremely valuable brand for tweens, teens and beyond, is pleased to announce that the company has raised more than $8 million in 2021 for its charitable partners. Nationally, Five Below’s charitable efforts benefited Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation, St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital®, Kids In Need Foundation and most recently Toys for Tots, the Marine Corps organization whose mission is to collect and distribute new , unwrapped toys to underprivileged children during the holidays. In addition, Five Below has raised money for two regional partners in Philadelphia, the company’s hometown: the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia and the Philadelphia Eagles Autism Foundation.

Five Below would like to thank its incredible customers who have donated time and again over the past year, as well as the tireless team of Wow Crew members in-store, without whom it would not have been possible to support these organizations. Throughout the year, Five Below and its loyal customers have supported these incredible organizations and their important missions through a combination of in-store donations and local community events.
