GET A HEAD START ON SPRING CLEANING WHILE HELPING THOSE IN NEED AND SAVE
Stein Mart Partners with The Salvation Army for Give & Receive Clothing Drive
JACKSONVILLE, FL (February 24, 2010) - Get a head start on Spring cleaning while helping those in need with Stein Mart and The Salvation Army’s national Give & Receive clothing drive, March 4-6. Shoppers who bring clean, gently used garments in good condition to any Stein Mart store during the Give & Receive event will receive savings on new Spring fashions and more.
For each item donated, contributors will receive a coupon for 20% off any item.* Those who donate will have the opportunity to redeem their coupons on a variety of items including fashion apparel for women, and men from many top designers and brands, as well as accessories, gifts, linens and shoes.
This is the third year that Stein Mart and The Salvation Army have teamed up to help those in need. In total, approximately one million pieces of clothing have been donated by Stein Mart shoppers to help replenish The Salvation Army Thrift and Family Stores. All proceeds from the Thrift and Family Stores directly support The Salvation Army’s Adult Rehabilitation Centers, where over 340,000 men and women turned their lives around in the past year.
“It’s refreshing that year after year, our loyal customers have joined in our efforts to help those in need,” said Stein Mart chairman Jay Stein. “For their participation, the coupon incentive to donate to Give & Receive is just a small token of our appreciation for their continued support.”
"We were greatly encouraged by the success of this partnership with Stein Mart, which demonstrated that even during times of economic uncertainty, people are still able and willing to give generously," said Major George Hood, National Community Relations and Development Secretary for The Salvation Army. "The Salvation Army appreciates the support of Stein Mart and its customers, who have allowed us to provide critical services to those in need."
