/PRNewswire/ -- Based on the success of two previous events, Stein Mart has again partnered with The Salvation Army for the national Give & Receive clothing drive, October 1-3. In a year that has brought financial challenges to many Americans and with the winter months fast approaching, Stein Mart and The Salvation Army have decided to team up for the second time in 2009 to help those who might be in need of clothes for the winter season. Shoppers who bring clean, gently used garments in good condition to any Stein Mart store during the Give & Receive event will receive savings on new fall fashions and much more.
Stein Mart previously teamed with The Salvation Army for Give & Receive events in October 2008 and February 2009. In total, approximately 800,000 pieces of clothing have been donated by Stein Mart shoppers to help replenish The Salvation Army Thrift and Family Stores. All proceeds from the Thrift and Family Stores directly support The Salvation Army's Adult Rehabilitation Centers, where over 340,000 men and women turned their lives around in 2008.
For each item donated, contributors will receive a coupon for 20% off any item.* Those who donate will have the opportunity to redeem their coupons on a variety of items including fashion apparel for women, men and children from many top designers and brands, as well as accessories, gifts, linens and shoes.
"We are proud to once again partner with Salvation Army," said Stein Mart chairman Jay Stein. "Our loyal customers continuously step up to join us in our efforts to support this valued organization. We are honored to again have this opportunity to help those in need and hope to make this an ongoing initiative."
"We were greatly encouraged by the success of last year's partnership with Stein Mart, which demonstrated that even during times of economic uncertainty, people are still able and willing to give generously," said Major George Hood, National Community Relations and Development Secretary for The Salvation Army. "With winter months fast approaching, The Salvation Army appreciates the continued support of Stein Mart and its customers, who have allowed us to provide critical services to those in need."
