-A A +A

TELL CITY – In a show of support for U.S. military families, Peebles stores are now selling a patriotic-themed, re-usable shopping tote with all proceeds benefiting Operation Homefront, a national organization providing emergency financial assistance and other vital support services to the families of U.S. soldiers. Beginning this week, customers can purchase the shopping tote at any Peebles store for $5 and 100 percent of the funds are donated to the charity.
Created especially for this effort, the sturdy re-usable tote features an American flag design and the slogan, “Helping Our Military and Environment.” Peebles is also giving every shopper who purchases the tote a $5 Bounce Back Re-ward good on any $25 purchase.
As additional support for military families, Peebles is introducing a military discount program. Active, inactive and retired military members with valid military identification are eligible for a 15 percent discount everyday.
Operation Homefront is a national nonprofit organization that provides military families with aid in the form of grocery store gift cards, short-term transitional living at Operation Homefront villages, donated vehicles for those who can’t afford one, and physical and emotional support for wounded soldiers and their families. More about the organization and its services is found at their Web site www.operationhomefront.net.
