Phillips-Van Heusen Fans Make Over 100,000 Donations to The Salvation Army

Wow.

100,000. Really?!

You may remember when we posted on our social media sites during this past April and May that The Salvation Army was partnering with Phillips-Van Heusen in a national drive for gently used clothing, furniture and household goods donations, and anybody making one of these donations was rewarded with a $10 gift certificate redeemable at Phillips-Van Heusen Corporation [NYSE:  PVH] stores, including Van Heusen, IZOD and Bass.

The generosity of PVH fans and Salvation Army supporters was clearly evident during this time as more than 100,000 donations were made to The Salvation Army. That’s incredible!

The goods received through this drive helped replenish the stock of clothing, furniture and household goods at Salvation Army Thrift and Family Stores, some of which have seen dwindling donations and additional demand during the economic downturn.

The Salvation Army is very grateful to Phillips-Van Heusen and all participants for your support. We appreciate your assistance in helping us to provide for those in need, and we hope you enjoyed your gift certificate as a little thank you!
