J. Jill conducts ongoing, national clothing drive for women in need

Mar '09
J. Jill invites women to open their closets and their hearts to help other women in need. The specialty retailer is conducting a continuous clothing drive for gently-worn J. Jill styles in each of its 276 retail stores nationwide starting Monday, March 16th. This drive builds on the overwhelming response to a regional effort held last month in J. Jill's Boston-area stores.

"We were so touched by the positive reaction to our Boston drive that we decided to extend this effort in all of our stores," said Paula Bennett, President of J. Jill. "It's clear that our customers have compassion for those less fortunate and appreciate the chance to donate their gently worn, but perfectly good J. Jill favorites to women in need."

Here's how the national drive works -- Starting March 16th, customers can bring their gently-used J. Jill purchases to any J. Jill store. Their donated styles will be distributed to local charities aligned with the J. Jill Compassion Fund, which is committed to helping poor and homeless women become self-sufficient. For each J. Jill item that's donated, the customer will receive a 10% discount that she can use toward the purchase of a new J. Jill style.
