Contest for Retailers That Give Back to the Community Now Open
August 20, 2012,
DALLAS--Dallas Market Center has opened its third-annual The Next Big Give contest, a national search for U.S. specialty retailers that give back in their communities through volunteering, raising funds or donating goods.
Last year's winners incorporated such programs as allowing customers to round up the cost of each purchase to the nearest dollar and donate the extra cents to charity and having employees form teams to volunteer as a group with the cause of their choice.
"We're truly inspired by retailers serving in their communities," said Cindy Morris, COO, Dallas Market Center. "We look forward to hearing even more stories of good works and kindness."
The application is available at dallasmarketcenter.com/give. For more information on the contest, visit dallasmarketcenter.com/give or email email@example.com.
