'Give & Receive' offers fresh fall fashions to shoppers

Sep '08
In a year that has brought financial challenges to many Americans, The Salvation Army and Stein Mart Inc, want to help shoppers "Give & Receive" from October 2-4, 2008, at Stein Mart stores nationwide.

The event provides an easy way for shoppers to give much-needed clothing and receive great savings on new fall fashions.

"We are proud to partner with The Salvation Army and appreciate our customers' generous support," said Linda M. Farthing, president and chief executive officer of Stein Mart Inc. "Through this event, our neighbors in need will benefit directly. That's what being part of a community is all about."

Customers are encouraged to bring clean, gently used garments in good condition to any Stein Mart store October 2-4 during the Give & Receiveevent.

For each item donated, contributors will receive a coupon for 20% off any item. Donated apparel will help replenish The Salvation Army's Thrift and Family Stores, many of which have reported as much as 20 percent decreases in donations over the past year.

All proceeds from the Thrift Stores directly support The Salvation Army's Adult Rehabilitation Centers, where over 340,000 men and women turned their lives around last year. Tax receipts are available for donations.

"The recent economic downturn has meant that people are keeping their gently used items longer so we are seeing fewer donations to our thrift and family stores," said Major George Hood, national community relations and development secretary.

"This means that we have fewer items to sell and therefore less funding for our life-changing programs. Stein Mart's support, and that of their shoppers, is vital to our service and The Salvation Army is grateful."

Coupons valid at Stein Mart locations October 2-4, 2008. Limit four coupons per customer while supplies last.
