P&G Partners With Lolo Jones for the 2012 Olympic Games

P&G has already begun gearing up for the London 2012 Olympic Games. They are also partnering with Lolo Jones, world champion hurdler and U.S. Olympic hopeful, who recently announced that Procter & Gamble (P&G) is donating $25,000 on behalf of Family Dollar to the P&G Team USA Youth Sports Fund

Jones attended eight schools in eight years while her single mother often held down two jobs to support her family of six. In third grade, the Jones family settled in the basement of a Des Moines-area church. Lolo attributes her success to the support of her mom and community, as well as hard work and determination.

“Growing up we didn’t have a lot of money so my mom really had to stretch her budget,” Jones said. “My family really benefited from the great values we received on P&G products from Family Dollar.”
