NEW YORK–UNIQLO, the global clothing retailer, announced dates for its annual “A Warm Gesture” program, which provides clothing for children in need and aligns with the brand’s global mission to improve people’s lives through the power of clothing.
This year more than 300 children from across the country will be invited to one of eight UNIQLO stores to shop this holiday season. Each child will be given special shopping tokens to shop with, and store personnel will help the kids select their favorite UNIQLO items.
Donation boxes have been set up at checkout areas to give customers an opportunity to support this initiative through monetary donations. Money raised from donations will be matched 100 percent by UNIQLO.
The holiday shopping experiences will take place on the following dates/store locations:
• Philadelphia, PA: 1608 Chestnut Street, for children with John Moffet Elementary
“’A Warm Gesture’ is something that is very near and dear to our hearts,” said Larry Meyer, CEO of UNIQLO USA. “What makes this program truly special is the fact that it’s co-sponsored by our customers, and we are thrilled to offer this experience to even more children this year.”
In past years, “A Warm Gesture” took place in New York City and San Francisco. This year, the initiative has been expanded to New Jersey, Connecticut, Massachusetts and Pennsylvania. For additional information, please visit www.uniqlo.com.
