The Military Order of the Purple Heart

For Immediate Release

Springfield, VA - November 16, 2011

Haggar-JCPenny "Trade-in-Trade-up" Event Benefits Military Order of the Purple Heart

The Military Order of the Purple Heart (MOPH) is pleased to announce that for a second year, JC Penney and Haggar Clothing Co. have partnered with the MOPH Service Foundation to receive pants donations nationwide through the Haggar Trade In/Trade Up program.  This year’s event will occur on Friday and Saturday, November 18 and 19, 2011.

This National day of Pantcycling provides male customers with the opportunity to "recycle" a gently used pair of pants by bringing it in to any participating JC Penney store nationwide, where they can then purchase a new pair of pants at a discounted price.

We are very excited about this great opportunity and we need your support and cooperation to help make it a real success.  Please encourage everyone you know to visit JC Penney and participate in this great event -- it's a win-win situation -- you and your friends get a new pair of pants at a low price and MOPH benefits from their contribution to our thrift store operations. Once the event has been completed, the participating stores nationwide will begin mailing the recycled pants to designated Purple Heart thrift stores.

The organization now known as the "Military Order of the Purple Heart (MOPH) of the U.S.A. Inc.," was formed in 1932 for the protection and mutual interest of all who have received the decoration. Chartered by the Congress, The MOPH is unique among Veteran Service Organizations in that all its members were wounded in combat. For this sacrifice, they were awarded the Purple Heart Medal. With grants from the MOPH Service Foundation, the MOPH and its Ladies Auxiliary promote Patriotism, Fraternalism, and the Preservation of America's military history. Most importantly, they provide comfort and assistance to all Veterans and their families, especially those requiring claims assistance with the VA, those who are homeless, and those requiring employment assistance.  MOPH volunteers through the VAVS program, provide assistance to hospitalized veterans at VA sites and State Veterans Homes.
