MILWAUKEE, Nov. 27, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ --Before you head to the mall in search of just the right gifts, dig out those sweaters you no longer wear or your children's outgrown clothing and donate them during the new holiday Goodwill Sale. When you drop them off at any one of Bon-Ton's 273 stores, your donations will benefit Goodwill's job training programs and you will receive a 25 percent off coupon on apparel, footwear and accessories to use toward holiday shopping from December 6­–11, 2012. For each item donated (20 items = 20 coupons), Bon-Ton Stores will provide a discount coupon that can be used at any Bon-Ton, Bergner's, Boston Store, Carson's, Elder-Beerman, Herberger's, Younkers or Parisian stores.

"People who donate during the Bon-Ton Goodwill Holiday Sale not only get a discount on the 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. "This holiday season take advantage of this unique opportunity to be charitable and save money."

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 have an estimated value of $15–$17 million in revenue and 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.

"We are thrilled to have expanded our commitment to the local communities that we serve by introducing a new Goodwill Sale event in early December. Customer donations of gently used items or clothing will earn them coupons to use throughout the store, benefitting our communities and rewarding our customers at this special time of the year," said Brendan L. Hoffman, president and chief executive officer of The Bon-Ton Stores, Inc.

Goodwill provides a broad array of services that help people identify their skills and interests in high-demand fields, including health care, green industries, financial services and technology. In addition to job training and career development programs, Goodwill also provides access to support services, including child care, free tax preparation, financial education, youth mentoring and transportation, among other family and financial strengthening services.
