WHAT IS FRIENDS HELPING FRIENDS?
Friends Helping Friends day is an opportunity for every local non-profit (501c and 170c1) organization (holding a Federal Tax ID#) to raise funds for their group by selling shopping passes to the event. In October 2017, Friends Helping Friends day was a tremendous success, raising over $600,000 for service organizations in communities with Boscov’s stores throughout Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Delaware, New York, Maryland and Ohio.
WHEN IS FRIENDS HELPING FRIENDS DAY?
Boscov’s will once again host our popular Friends Helping Friends day on Tuesday, October 16, 2018.
WHY SHOULD I PARTICIPATE?
Friends Helping Friends makes fundraising for your non-profit organization simple and easy!
1) It’s Free! There is no cost or obligation to any participating organization. Your organization will be supplied with $5 shopping passes, as many as you want to sell to friends, neighbors and family. Your organization keeps the entire $5 from every shopping pass sold.
2) It’s Easy! Boscov’s supplies the passes, signs, advertising and free refreshments served throughout the day in our store on Friends Helping Friends day. It is truly a terrific opportunity for your group and its supporters.
3) You Can Qualify for Bonus Awards! After Friends Helping Friends Day, each Boscov’s location will award $100 to an organization selected by random drawing from all the organizations that are participating.
