The Bon-Ton Stores, Inc. (NASDAQ:BONT), parent company of Bon-Ton, Bergner’s, Boston Store, Carson’s, Elder-Beerman, Herberger’s and Younkers department stores, is the perfect shopping destination for the holidays. Every year, millions of consumers search for the perfect gift and many look for gifts that give back in the spirit of the season. Bon-Ton Stores has partnered with Boys & Girls Clubs of America (BGCA) and Club alum Mario Lopez for its Give the Gift of a Great Future campaign. The campaign kicks off on Black Friday, November 29, and runs through December 24, 2013.
Mario Lopez, Alumni Ambassador for Boys & Girls Clubs of America, said, “As a former Club kid, I know Clubs are safe places where children can grow, learn, develop and belong. I hope you will join me and your local Bon-Ton store this holiday season by supporting Boys & Girls Clubs in your community and across the nation.”
There are several ways the community can get involved and support the Boys & Girls Clubs and help Bon-Ton reach its donation goal of $500,000. Customers can purchase an exclusive teddy bear or make a donation at any of Bon-Ton’s Stores, including Bon-Ton, Bergner’s, Boston Store, Carson’s, Elder-Beerman, Herberger’s and Younkers, and online. The adorable, plush teddy bear is dressed up in a holiday scarf and retails for just $7 and 100% of the net proceeds will be donated to Boys & Girls Clubs. Customers can also make a $3 donation at any store or online and receive a very special savings offer for their holiday shopping. On Facebook, fans can spread the cheer by sharing a variety of virtual holiday greeting cards with friends and family. Bon-Ton Stores will donate $1 to BGCA for every card shared up to $15,000.
But the support doesn’t stop there. The Bon-Ton Stores, Inc. has initiated a job placement program and will be providing jobs in our stores to over 200 Club youth during the holiday season. The program will support youth from seventeen different clubs in eleven states including Illinois, Indiana, Maine, Massachusetts, Michigan, Montana, Nebraska, New York, Pennsylvania, South Dakota and Wisconsin. The job placement program helps youth develop professional skills and ready themselves for future careers.
