Before heading to the mall in search of just the right gifts, dig out those sweaters long forgotten or children’s outgrown clothing and donate them during the new holiday Goodwill Sale at Bon-Ton stores, which includes Carson’s in Terre Haute.
The donations will benefit Goodwill’s job training program, and for each item donated the store will provide a 25 percent off coupon on apparel, footwear and accessories to use toward holiday shopping from Dec. 6-11.
“People who donate during the Bon-Ton Goodwill Holiday Sale not only get a discount on gifts they buy for their families and friends, but they can also take pride in knowing that their donations provide job opportunities for people with disabilities and disadvantages in their communities,” said Jim Gibbons, president and CEO of Goodwill Industries International.
Nearly 3.9 million pounds of clothing and textiles were collected and donated to Goodwill during the fall Bon-Ton Goodwill Sale. The donated goods support Goodwill’s job training programs, career services and other community-based programs for people with disabilities, those who lack education or job experience, and others facing challenges to finding employment.
Customers who donate can also pledge their support for Goodwill’s mission by registering their donations on www.millionactsofgoodwill.com.
When individuals register, they will receive a coupon for an additional 25 percent off to use at any Bon-Ton Stores location and will also be able to play the Closet Clean-Out Giveaway Instant Win Game for a chance to win a Bon-Ton gift card instantly. They also will be entered into a sweepstakes for a chance to have their Bon-Ton Stores credit card paid off, up to $5,000.
