February 15, 2012,
DALLAS-Dallas Market Center today announced A. Dodson's and Brookshire's Food & Pharmacy as the two winners for The Next Big Give, a national search for specialty retailers that give back in their communities. A. Dodson's, an apparel, gift, and home decor store in Suffolk, Va., and Brookshire's Food & Pharmacy, based in Tyler, Texas, were selected from more than 50 retailers that entered.
The winners will receive a complimentary trip to the Dallas Apparel & Accessories/Total Home & Gift Markets, Mar. 22-25, 2012, including round-trip airfare and three nights hotel stay. While at market, they will be recognized during The Inspired Event, a cocktail party benefiting charitable causes.
Among A. Dodson's charitable activities is the A. Dodson's Round Up, a program allowing customers to round up the cost of each purchase to the nearest dollar and have the extra cents donated to charity. In 2011, A. Dodson's gave more than $2,500 to various charity organizations.
Brookshire's started the Community Connections program in 2008 to enable employees to volunteer an average of four times per year with the cause of their choice. Last year, Brookshire's donated more than 28,000 documented volunteer hours and more than $1.5 million to various charitable causes.
