Look good by doing good
Herberger's customers who donate clean, gently used clothing and textiles during the semi-annual Goodwill Sale, March 9-23, will receive coupons toward the purchase of new merchandise.
Donated items will generate revenues for job training programs and other community-based services for people with disabilities, those who lack education or job experience, and others facing challenges to finding employment.
Participating customers receive one coupon per donated item. The coupons can be used at Herberger's locations for 20 percent off regular or sale-price apparel, shoes and accessories and fine jewelry and 15 percent off cosmetics, fragrances and home store merchandise. Certain items, including furniture, electronics and toys, qualify for a 10 percent discount.
Customers who register their donations at http://millionactsofgoodwill.com will also receive a 25-percent-off coupon to use during the Goodwill Sale as a thank you for their contributions. They can also play the site's Spin-to-Win Instant Win Game daily for a chance to win a $100 gift card, and be entered in the sweepstakes for a chance to win a trip for two to New York City to see LIVE! with Regis and Kelly.
During the fall 2010 sale, close to four million pounds of clothing and textiles were donated.
