Each pair of donated jeans will be given to a local Goodwill organization and sold in one of its stores. The revenue from the sale of donated items helps fund Goodwill's local job placement and training, career counseling, skills building services, and other community-based programs, such as access to child care or transportation. These services create greater self-sufficiency.
"Goodwill is thrilled to be teaming up with A Pea in the Pod to offer this great opportunity for expectant moms," said Kim Zimmer, chief marketing officer & senior VP of global development for Goodwill Industries International. "This partnership gives moms-to-be a way to tidy up their wardrobes, donate to help people in their communities get jobs, and get some fashionable clothes for the months ahead."
The donation partnership is built on a successful collaboration between A Pea in the Pod's parent company, Destination Maternity, and Goodwill, and now has expanded to 27 A Pea in the Pod stores. The promotion runs from February 16 to March 9 at participating A Pea in the Pod locations across the country. The offer is valid for one pair of jeans per visit.
