Sears to Donate a Portion of December 4 Sales to ADHDA

Tue, Nov 23, 2010

As a part of the Sears “Holiday Charitable Organization Event,” each Hometown Sears Store is able to select an organization to receive two percent of the store’s net sales on December 4. The Sears Hometown Store in downtown Astoria selected the Astoria Downtown Historic District Association (ADHDA) as its designated recipient this year.

Dulcye Taylor, vice-president of ADHDA, responded to the news. “Wow! We are very appreciative of (Sears Store owners) Jim and Susan Montgomery’s generosity, and are flattered they thought of us,” she said. “That’s a real vote of confidence from our business community, and a much appreciated show of support for our efforts. I hope the community will support us as well by shopping at Sears in Downtown Astoria on December 4!”

ADHDA is a non-profit organization and relies on sponsorships and member contributions for its funding. Help promote downtown Astoria and ADHDA by shopping at Sears in downtown Astoria on Saturday, December 4, 2010.
