New Initiative Benefits Both The Community and Customers
Online PR News – 02-August-2013 – Atlanta, Georgia – Hartwell Industries, one of the nation’s premier suppliers of clothing for the uniform and promotional products industries, today announced the launch of HelpingHart.com, a first-of-its-kind website which allows the public to buy high-quality clothing and contribute to charity at the same time. For every garment sold on HelpingHart.com, Hartwell will donate a like-item to a charitable organization. Hartwell has dubbed the program, “Buy one, Give one.” Whether helping to clothe victims of natural disasters or provide suitable attire to people down-on-their-luck and looking for a job, customers at HelpingHart.com know their purchases won’t just look good, they will also be doing good at the same time.
“Every company talks about wanting to help the community,” said Hartwell CEO John Sabol, “but we decided to back up our talk with real action. The HelpingHart.com website allows us to partner with our customers to provide the kind of charity that none of us can do on our own. As we say on the website, we let you ‘give the shirt off our back.’”
The HelpingHart.com website contains dozens of styles of polos, dress shirts and jackets for men and women that are exactly the same high-quality items Hartwell is known for providing to Corporate America. The workmanship and distinction of Hartwell clothing is unquestioned. Now, through HelpingHart.com, consumers can purchase this clothing and do a good deed at the same time.
“We created the Helping Hart initiative in the wake of Hurricane Sandy,” said Sabol. “We saw the devastation; people who had lost everything; and wanted to help. We’ve already given away thousands of dollars’ worth of clothing, but we want it to be even bigger. Today’s announcement that the HelpingHart.com website is ready to take orders allows us to make this a nation-wide effort to change lives. Buy one, give one – the message is simple and it works.”
