Shop at the GAP store in Jacksonville, North Carolina this entire month of October, 2009 and through your purchases you can help contribute to support the OPERATION-Hug-A-Hero mission:
Stylish and Generous – A winning combination! The GAP store in Jacksonville, NC is responding to our cause through a “donate at the register” campaign that will take place through the month of October. Every GAP shopper will be given an opportunity to donate any amount to Operation Hug-A-Hero (OHAH). For each donation, shoppers will be able to add their OHAH donation card to the “Recognition Window” in the GAP. The GAP, in turn, will match those donations from shoppers, dollar for dollar, up to $25,000! So, when it is all said and done, a total of up to $50,000 could be raised in just 31 days, which would allow OHAH to gift 2,000 Hug-A-Hero dolls to eligible children.
Many supporting organizations in Jacksonville are helping to spread the word and encourage everyone they know to shop The GAP this month. Whitney Jezek-Power, 2nd VP and Lesley Ginder, Fundraising Chair, of the Camp Lejeune Officers’ Wives Club (OWC), have challenged all of the OWC members to not only stop by and make a donation, but to pass the word to everyone that they know as well. The Camp Lejeune OWC was one of the first organizations to donate to OHAH with a $1,000 cash grant in May, 2009 specifically to provide Hug-A-Hero dolls to families of deploying Marines and Sailors from the Camp Lejeune community.
