Carson Pirie Scott & Co. raises funds for local Boys & Girls Clubs

Stores sell popular ‘Pet Project’ plush

MILWAUKEE—Carson Pirie Scott & Co. stores—Bergner’s, Boston Store, Carson Pirie Scott, Herberger’s and Younkers—are partnering with local Boys & Girls Clubs to raise funds for a worthy cause—local children. This season, the stores are selling “Pet Project” plush toys, just in time for the holidays. A portion of the proceeds from these cute, cuddly toys benefits your local Boys & Girls Clubs.

“Carson Pirie Scott & Co. is a proud supporter of 73 local Boys & Girls Clubs locations,” said Tony Buccina, president, Carson Pirie Scott & Co., and board member of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Milwaukee. “The Boys & Girls Clubs are truly ‘The Positive Place for Kids’, and are making a difference for children in our communities.”

Each pet is 12 inches and comes in five styles: Black and white or Siamese kittens, a yellow lab, a golden cocker spaniel and a black and brown terrier puppy. Each pet is $9.99 with a portion of the proceeds benefiting local Boys & Girls Clubs.

Since its inception in 2002, Carson Pirie Scott & Co.’s holiday plush promotion has donated more than $274,000 to local Boys & Girls Clubs.
