BBBS, JC Penney join forces for fundraiser
Big Brothers Big Sisters, the nation's largest donor and volunteer supported mentoring network, is joining forces with JC Penney in June for the retailer's charitable giving program, JCP Cares. By rounding-up purchases, both in-store and online at jcp.com, customers support maintaining and monitoring long-term mentoring matches to help local children who face adversity in school and life. All funds raised will stay local and benefit Yavapai Big Brothers Big Sisters serving the Quad Cities, Sedona and the Verde Valley.
The JC Penney store at the Prescott Gateway Mall will invite customers to become friends of Big Brothers Big Sisters by rounding up purchases to the nearest dollar and donating the difference to the nationwide mentoring organization. In addition, they will donate $1 for every $50 gift card sold in June, up to $50,000.
Haggar will also support Big Brothers Big Sisters by running an in-store campaign in all JC Penney locations June 1-30. For any pair of Haggar pants purchased, Haggar will donate $1 to Yavapai Big Brothers Big Sisters, with a contribution of up to $50,000. Customers will have the opportunity to enter for a chance to win a trip to the 2013 Pro Football Hall of Fame Enshrinement Weekend in Canton, Ohio.
