Anna’s Linens Begins Charitable Efforts for Holidays

       

       

COSTA MESA, Calif.–Anna’s Linens has launched efforts to benefit charities during the holiday shopping season.

For the third straight year, the home specialty retailer has aligned itself with the St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital Thanks and Giving campaign, a holiday program designed to raise awareness and funds for the children’s cancer hospital. People who shop at Anna’s Linens from Nov. 1 through Dec. 31 will be asked to donate to St. Jude, and donations will be accepted at all Anna’s Linens stores nationwide and on its website.

Also, the retailer recently donated more than 10,000 throws to about 70 local charities in California, Arizona, Florida, Maryland, Illinois, Virginia and North and South Carolina. It has also teamed up with Choose Haiti, a philanthropic initiative that has brought manufacturing work to the island by selling shirts and recycled-plastic bracelets made in Haitian factories.
