Belk Charity Sale set for Aug. 24

Posted

Belk is holding its annual Back-to-School Charity Sale, offering discounts on top brands while giving back to local nonprofits. 

The event will take place Saturday, Aug. 24, from 7 a.m. to close at all of Belk’s 292 locations, including the one in Jasper. The first 100 customers at each store receiving a Belk gift card ranging from $5 to $100. Many leading brands will be discounted.

Since its 2012 inception, Belk’s Charity Sale has contributed more than $64 million in donations to over 6,000 charities throughout the retailer’s local communities. Each year, Belk engages thousands of nonprofit organizations to help raise money through charity sales, including local charities such as United Way, Boy Scouts and other education-based organizations

Customers are encouraged to purchase a $5 ticket from a partnering nonprofit, or at their local Belk store. The $5 will ultimately be deducted from the customer’s purchase at the event. All ticket proceeds purchased from a nonprofit will stay with that group. Proceeds from tickets purchased at Belk will be divided amongst the store’s partner charities.

In addition to ticket sales, a $1,500 donation will be made to two randomly selected charities participating in the Charity Sale.
