Plan to get up early for Belk’s Charity Sale on Saturday, May 3, from 6-10 a.m. The four-hour shopping sale directly benefits non-profit charities and schools, allowing them to keep 100% of each $5 ticket sold, while providing shoppers an opportunity to save 20 to 70 percent off purchases of seldom discounted merchandise.
Participating non-profit organizations will keep 100% of each $5 ticket sold. There is no limit to the number of tickets charities can sell, or to the amount of money, they can raise. Belk provides tickets and informational materials at no cost to each participating organization. In 2013 Belk’s Charity Sale raised over $10 million for over 8,000 participating charitable organizations in sixteen states.
"Being a part of our communities and meeting local needs has been an integral part of the Belk philosophy since our founding in 1888, and it continues to be one of our core values today," said Jessica Graham, Belk vice president of communications and community relations. "We are grateful to our customers and our associates for their contributions to our efforts, which allow our efforts to have an even greater impact."
Tickets may be purchased at Belk stores with all revenues from in-store ticket sales equally divided among participating non-profits and schools at each local store.
This is an excellent way to help schools that so badly need supplies, women’s health issues and added demands that the economy has placed upon many families and neighborhoods. It also helps the thrifty fashion shopper with 20-70% off storewide on Saturday, May 3.
Shoppers will also receive $5 off their first purchase when they present their Charity Sale ticket to a sales associate. Belk’s Charity Sale is only four hours, but is truly a win-win situation!
