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.

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.
