  • Local non-profit organizations are invited to participate in a unique fundraising opportunity with their local Herberger's store.

Herberger's will continue its "Community Day" event to be held on Saturday, November 14. Non-profit organizations can sign-up now at communitydayevent.com.
This event provides an opportunity for local organizations to gather the donations needed to support their missions, especially at a time when many non-profits have limited resources and more requests than they can accommodate.

On August 2, local participating non-profit groups will begin selling $5 Herberger's discount savings booklets to support their organization. Each booklet contains coupons and offers for savings of more than $60.

Non-profit groups selling the booklets keep 100 percent of the $5 booklet price.

Qualifying Community Day organizations include local 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations, churches and schools.
