Rebuilding Together, the leading home and community revitalization national non-profit organization, today announced a new partnership with specialty retailer Cost Plus World Market, to provide critical home repairs to our neighbors in need and revitalize our communities.
From now until December 31, 2019, Cost Plus World Market customers have the opportunity to give back to their community by supporting Rebuilding Together's mission to repair the homes of people in need and revitalize our communities. While shopping in World Market stores, customers can elect to make a donation of $1, $3 or $5 to the non-profit organization at the register.
“At Cost Plus World Market we strongly believe everyone should be given the opportunity to build happy memories where they live," said Jack Schwefel, CEO, Cost Plus World Market. "We encourage our employees and customers to give back to their community and join us in supporting Rebuilding Together to ensure our neighbors have a safe place to call home."
Donations can also be made online at www.pledgeling.com/worldmarket, where an impact map displays a variety of home and community center projects across the country performed by Rebuilding Together. There is also a real-time impact calculator to show the total dollars raised to date. This campaign is powered by Pledgeling, the technology partner and platform that brings together companies and causes for world-changing impact.
“Cost Plus World Market understands the importance of giving back to our neighbors and strengthening our communities throughout the country,” said Caroline Blakely, President and CEO of Rebuilding Together. “Working hand-in-hand, we can provide critical home repairs to those who need it most and accelerate Rebuilding Together’s work to ensure everyone lives in safe homes and communities.”
