JACKSONVILLE, Fla., Oct. 27, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- In honor of Veterans Day, Stein Mart will introduce its latest chain-wide charitable program, "Give Back to Our Veterans," to support VA Voluntary Service (VAVS) and help the country's veterans facing homelessness.
Starting Nov. 3, shoppers can contribute to the effort by purchasing a new package of underwear or socks at any Stein Mart location. All items collected will be donated to VAVS and distributed to veterans across the country. Participating customers will also receive a coupon for 25 percent off any single sale item.
