For the 20th year, Younkers department stores, under the Bon Ton umbrella, and Goodwill Industries Inc. are teaming up to collect donations of apparel and home textiles.
The department stores’ spring Goodwill sale begins today and runs through March 29.
In the Omaha area, Younkers stores at Westroads Mall and Oak View Mall will accept donations today through March 29. Both locations will participate in a “Stuff the Truck” event from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
The Younkers store at Gateway Mall in Lincoln also is accepting donations.
For each item of apparel or home textile donated, donors will receive a coupon valid for up to 25 percent off regular and sale price merchandise at Younkers. Coupons may be redeemed at any Younkers store.
Donated items from the event will be sold at Goodwill stores within the Omaha metro area. The revenue from donation sales funds job-training programs and other community-based services.
