Stage Stores Shoppers Help Raise $375,000 For Military Families
This year’s Veteran’s Day was celebrated in a special way as Stage Stores Inc. donated $375,000 to Operation Homefront. The donation came from the sale of patriotic-themed, reusable shopping totes and was made possible in part by the outstanding support from customers who purchased the tote.
The check was presented by Andy Hall, president and CEO of Stage Stores Inc., to Jim Knotts, CEO of Operation Homefront at one of the company’s stores in San Antonio, Texas, where Operation Homefront has its headquarters.
As a special tribute to veterans around the nation, the department store chain recognized two U.S. veterans, selected from nominations submitted by store associates around the country, to honor their military and community service. Robin Greer, a veteran of the U.S. Navy from Granbury, Texas, and Derek Mayes, a veteran of the U.S. Air Force from Indianapolis, Indiana, were surprised with a trip to San Antonio to attend the presentation and enjoy a fun-filled weekend with their families, courtesy of Stage Stores.
Thanks to all of you who supported our military families.
