Haggar and Belk partner for pant trade-in event to benefit veterans

Linda Miller Published: November 7, 2012

Haggar Clothing Co. is partnering with Belk stores for its national pant trade-in promotion benefiting The Purple Heart Service Foundation.  The promotion continues through Nov. 10.

The goal of this event is to have customers bring in any brand of gently worn pants to a Belk store that will in turn be donated to The Purple Heart Service Foundation.  The foundation then sells the donated items at its resale locations and uses the funds to aid veterans and their families in need.  Everyone recycling pants during this promotion will be able to purchase any new Haggar casual or dress pant for just $24.99. 

Last year, more than 10,000 pairs of pants were donated during the trade-in event and then resold through Purple Heart Thrift Stores.  The monies gained from these sales allowed the Military Order of the Purple Heart to provide advice and assistance to some 74,000 veterans and their families.

In Oklahoma, Belk stores are in Stillwater, Tulsa and Owasso.
