Goodwill NCW partners with Christopher & Banks for promotion
Goodwill, the United States’ leading workforce development nonprofit, and Christopher & Banks, a national specialty retail company that provides expressive styles for women of all sizes, have partnered for the Goodwill Giving Event (Aug. 30-Sept. 9), encouraging individuals to donate to a local Goodwill store in exchange for coupons valid at Christopher & Banks stores.
Beginning Thursday, Aug. 30, donors at 17 retail store and training center locations, four Donation Express locations and an Outlet Store operated by Goodwill Industries of North Central Wisconsin (Goodwill NCW) will earn coupons worth $10 valid on purchases at any Christopher & Banks retail store or online at www.christopherandbanks.com. Participating C&B stores also will accept donations to Goodwill and distribute a coupon for each total donation.
“We’re thrilled to partner with the national retailer Christopher & Banks,” said Chris Hess, president and CEO of Goodwill NCW. “We know that C&B believes in doing good for others, and with the Goodwill Giving Event, shoppers can score great items while elevating the lives of people in their community.”
More than 85% of the revenue from the sale of goods in Goodwill stores creates job training and placement, plus a variety of other community programs. Goodwill NCW uses the revenue from the sale of goods to support 24 human-services programs in its 35-county service area, from Manitowoc to La Crosse, Rice Lake to Plover and Rhinelander to Tomah. When donors contribute used clothing, sporting goods, housewares, electronics and furniture, they help people in their community gain skills and support to fulfill Goodwill NCW’s mission of Elevating People.
Christopher & Banks provides its customers with relevant style and exceptional service and deeply believes in shopping for a cause.
“The Goodwill Giving Event and our collaboration with Goodwill is an opportunity for our company, as well as our customers, to make a positive impact in the lives of others,” said Keri Jones, CEO of Christopher & Banks. “Christopher & Banks always strives to be a good neighbor and invest in the success of the communities where we operate.”
