Janesville, WI (PRWEB) October 29, 2014
Blain’s Farm & Fleet is excited to announce it’s Annual Day of Giving. A total of over $10,000 in gift cards will be given away corporate wide on Sunday, November 2 to local charities including Boys & Girls Clubs, Cops for Kids, Dove, Inc, Empty Stocking Club, Head Start and more!
Each Blain’s Farm & Fleet store will be presenting a gift card to their local charity on behalf of the children who won the store’s Kid’s Helping Kid’s contest. This program, created by Blain’s Farm & Fleet, teaches our children the importance and beauty of giving to others in need.
Through this program, parents registered their children at any Blain’s Farm & Fleet store to win a gift card. Then, on behalf of the winning children, Blain’s Farm & Fleet donates a matching dollar amount to a variety of charities in each of our communities. The winners of the contest are encouraged to help present the matching contribution to the charitable organizations.
“This is such a heartwarming program,” says Blain’s Farm & Fleet President Jane Blain Gilbertson. “We’ve found that it really helps teach our children that the true meaning of the holidays is about giving. The kid’s expressions are priceless when they help present the matching gift to the charities.”
Founded in 1955, Blain’s Farm & Fleet stores are specialty discount retailers with 36 locations throughout Illinois, Iowa and Wisconsin. Throughout the years, the company remains steadfast in its commitment to offering customers high quality products, competitive prices and reliable service.
