November 8, 2022 – In Florida, as families impacted by Hurricane Ian continue to rebuild their lives, JCPenney has partnered with The Salvation Army to relieve the burden with a donation of 130,000 units of new clothing, bedding and home goods to those families in need. The merchandise units – worth $2.4 million – have been sourced directly from JCPenney distribution centers in Columbus, OH and Lenexa, KS. This comes just weeks after the retailer donated up to 55,000 units of new merchandise to Puerto Ricans in need, in partnership with United Way de Puerto Rico.
“JCPenney’s founding principles are rooted in building strong, vibrant communities,” said JCPenney Chief Executive Officer Marc Rosen. “We are committed to upholding this legacy and are honored to partner with The Salvation Army to provide resources for families in Florida as they rebuild their communities in the wake of Hurricane Ian.”
JCPenney is committed to supporting those in need with essential resources wherever they can, especially for hard hit communities where their customers live and work.
Deliveries are being paid for by JCPenney and will continue through the weeks leading up to Thanksgiving.
