In 2022, JCPenney introduced Hope & Wonder, a private label brand for everyone in the family designed to commemorate moments that matter. Hope & Wonder™ celebrates cultural observances throughout the year, such as Black History Month, Pride, Juneteenth, and Hispanic Heritage Month. In addition to corporate contributions, all net profits from Hope & Wonder sales are donated to nonprofits selected by JCPenney associates. In 2022, JCPenney contributed a total of $400,000 to Hope & Wonder nonprofit partners.
