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.
PVH fans and Salvation Army supporters really came through during these two months, making more than 100,000 donations 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 had 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 enjoy your gift certificate as a little thank you!
The initial release and more information about the campaign can be viewed here.

There’s an old saying that goes, “A good deed is its own reward.” But who’s to say that you shouldn’t get some extra encouragement for an act of goodwill? Phillips-Van Heusen, one of the world’s largest apparel companies, is partnering with the Salvation Army to recognize your altruistic acts.
For in-kind donations you contribute between April 1 and May 31 to select Salvation Army Family Thrift Stores, you will be thanked with a $10 gift certificate to any Phillips-Van Heusen, IZOD, or Bass retail stores. Participating Salvation Army stores will provide you with a dated receipt for your generous donations and a coupon to redeem for your next shopping trip.
The goal of the campaign is to help replenish stock at Salvation Army Thrift and Family Stores, some of which have seen dwindling donations during the economic downturn. Proceeds from sales at these stores directly support The Salvation Army’s Adult Rehabilitation Centers (ARCs) where more than 300,000 men and women receive treatment for drug and alcohol addictions each year.
The Salvation Army operates a network of more than 1,300 thrift and family stores nationwide. These stores accept gently used donations of furniture, clothing, household appliances, automobiles and other items which are then re-sold to the general public. All gifts are tax-deductible and go to support Salvation Army programs and services in the local community.
