New! Community Days booklets now available online to support participating organizations
The Bon-Ton Stores, Inc., (NASDAQ: BONT) which operates Bon-Ton, Bergner’s, Boston Store, Carson’s, Elder-Beerman, Herberger’s, Parisian and Younkers stores, announces its Community Days fundraising event to be held on Friday, November 9 and Saturday, November 10. Thousands of non-profit groups have already signed up and are selling savings booklets in their neighborhoods and online to raise money. For the first time, donors can purchase a savings booklet online at bonton.com or communitydayevent.com and direct the funds to the participating organization of their choice. Booklets will be mailed to donors by The Bon-Ton Stores free of charge.
The savings booklets contain over $400 in savings on in-store and online merchandise and can be used during the Bon-Ton Community Days event on November 9 and November 10.
“Providing opportunities to support local organizations is important to our company,” said Brendan Hoffman, president and chief executive officer of The Bon-Ton Stores, Inc. “Community Days provides an easy fundraiser for non-profit groups and valuable shopping offers in our store to those who buy booklets to support them.”
Groups may still sign up now at www.communitydayevent.com. Eligible Community Day organizations include 501C-3 nonprofit organizations and schools. Non-profit groups sell savings booklets for a $5 donation to support their group and, in return, the purchaser receives the valuable booklet of offers which instantly pays the donor back with a $10-off on $10 or more item-coupon. The organization keeps 100% of the $5 donation.
Last November, $6.7 million was raised by participating non-profit organizations through the Community Day event. Successful organizations have raised thousands of dollars by participating in this event.
