J.C. Penney to Raise Funds

The retailer is asking customers to round up their purchases in February to the nearest whole dollar and donate the difference to benefit Dress for Success.

As part of its charitable giving program, jcp cares, J.C. Penney Co. Inc. is asking customers to round up their purchases in February to the nearest whole dollar and donate the difference to benefit Dress for Success, the organization that promotes economic independence of disadvantaged women by providing professional attire, support and career development tools.

 

“One of the best things about this partnership with J.C. Penney is that it calls the community into action. Anyone and everyone can play a role in helping an unemployed woman enter the workforce, which we know helps her, her family, her community and our economy,” said Joi Gordon, chief executive officer of Dress for Success Worldwide.
