The Company Store Helps Keep Homeless Children Warm This Winter: Launching Buy One, Give One Comforter Program
January 7, 2012 by admin
LACROSSE, Wis., Jan. 5, 2012 /PRNewswire/ – The Company Store today announced the launch of their Buy One, Give One Comforter Program, an important project benefitting thousands of homeless children throughout the United States. Now through the end of March 2012, The Company Store will donate a comforter to a child with every comforter purchased from their web site or catalog. By placing their order, the customer is automatically donating a comforter to a child in need.
“The Company Store’s loyal customers can participate with us in an act of kindness and generosity every time they purchase a comforter,” says Karen Feldman, Director at The Company Store. “There are a significant number of homeless children in this country who are living without a warm bed, and The Company Store is committed to bringing some comfort and warmth to children in need throughout the year, not just during the holiday season. We are pleased to deliver these comforters through Family Promise and their affiliates in the United States. Last year, The Company Store donated tens of thousands of comforters, and this year the hope is to fulfill an even greater amount.”
“The Buy One, Give One initiative was so beneficial for our Affiliates last year, and we’re thrilled The Company Store is expanding it even further this winter,” says Karen Olson, President of Family Promise. “A comforter is something many of us may take for granted, but it makes a big impact on the lives of the children we work with daily—not only by keeping them warm at night, but by providing them in some small way with the comfort of home at a very difficult time. The Company Store’s generosity will help us truly make a difference to thousands of families in need.”
