Salvation Army Trading Company’s charity shops in Newcastle Under Lyme, Leek, Longton and Hanley are set to launch their 2013 Christmas campaigns on November 19 and 21 with an appeal to shoppers that ‘All we want for Christmas is…your donations!’
As well as revealing for the first time this year the special Christmas stock that the teams have been saving up all year including gifts, toys, jewellery and winter clothing, they will also be appealing to shoppers to think about what they can give back to the shops at Christmas.
The shop will be unveiling new window posters and Christmas card-style leaflets showing customers what a big difference donating their unwanted items could make.
* £9 could help to keep three homeless people off the streets at Christmas
* £19 could provide a Christmas box to a family in need containing food and gifts
* £28 could provide a Christmas meal and much-needed companionship to five elderly people.
Shoppers are invited to come along to their local shop on the launch date to bag some festive bargains and learn more about how their donations can help those in need at Christmas.
