Local residents can help people in their community find good jobs just by cleaning out their closets.
Through Sept. 25, customers who donate clean, gently used clothing and home textiles at participating Bon-Ton locations - including the Valley Mall store - will receive coupons toward the purchase of new merchandise.
One coupon is given per item donated, and all donations support local Goodwill Industries job training and career services to help people find good jobs.
Customers can drop off donations at all Bon-Ton stores, or at participating Goodwill stores and donation centers. The donated clothing and textiles will be sold in local Goodwill retail stores, and revenues will be used to fund job training and career services for people with disabilities, welfare recipients and other job seekers.
