A Sweater Purchased at Red Racks Thrift Store or City Thrift Provides a Meal for Someone In Need

Purchasing a authentic "Ugly Christmas Sweater" can provide food to someone who needs a meal this holiday season.

Our hope is that through the purchase of holiday sweaters, the community will come together to help someone in Kansas City who needs a warm meal- Doug DePew

The Disabled American Veterans and City Union Mission partner together again this year for their Sweater Meal Donation Program. During the month of December, for every specially marked sweater purchased at Red Racks Thrift Stores or City Thrift Stores, a meal will be donated to those in need through City Union Mission.

Our hope is that the community will rally around those in need this holiday season by purchasing a holiday sweater for their office or family party,” said CEO Doug DePew. “In turn, we will provide a meal, on the customer’s behalf, to City Union Mission.”

The sweaters that make up this Meal Donation Program are authentic “Ugly Christmas Sweaters” from the 80’s and 90’s. These sweaters are perfect for your family or office holiday party and are priced as low as $17.00 each, with a portion of that cost donated for a meal.

While the Sweater Meal Donation Program is active, if the community would like to donate a meal as opposed to purchasing a sweater, an in-kind donation for a meal will be accepted at all Red Racks Thrift Stores and City Thrift Stores then given to the Mission on the customer’s behalf.

City Union Mission provided 250,144 meals to those in need throughout 2015. Our customers helped provide 967 of those meals through the Sweater Meal Donation Project of 2015. In 2016, our goal is to provide 1500 meals to those who may otherwise not have a meal during the holidays!

Red Racks Thrift Stores and City Thrift Stores are committed to providing a clean, bright, fun shopping experience for anyone looking to save money on designer brands as well as deeply discounted everyday brands. The fun and excitement of thrift is in the thrill of the hunt, with thousands of fresh and unique items available each day.

Red Racks Thrift Stores is owned and operated by the Disabled American Veterans City Thrift Stores are owned by City Union Mission.
