Community Day event raises $4.8M
MILWAUKEE — The Bon-Ton Stores, Inc., which operates Bon-Ton, Bergner’s, Boston Store, Carson’s, Elder-Beerman, Herberger’s and Younkers stores, has announced its Community Days fundraising effort raised approximately $4.8 million.
The semi-annual Community Day event, which took place on March 1 and March 2, raised money for important projects and causes in the stores’ local communities. Mounds Mall, Anderson, is home to Carson’s.
Thousands of 501(c)-3 nonprofit organizations and schools signed up to sell $5 savings booklets, which contained over $400 in savings both in-store and online. In return for their donation to the organization, customers received a $10 coupon and multiple discounts to be used on Community Day. One hundred percent of the $5 booklet donation is retained by the participating organizations.
The Bon-Ton Stores have raised over $100 million for local non-profit groups since Community Days began in 1999.
