MATTHEWS – Cindy Williams and Dana Degan are rolling out new programs for their Green Jeans Consignment Sale in appreciation of teachers, military, first-responders, medical personnel and teenagers.
As the sisters continue spreading their message of “paying it forward” through their pre-sales, they wanted to give these groups the chance to feel appreciated with dedicated time to shop before the public.
“When Dana and I were thinking about our community and the different segments we touch, we found that, as moms, we really have a love for teachers,” Williams said. “We also appreciate the crazy hours and sacrifice our military heroes, police force, fire department and hospital staff puts in to ensure our family’s safety every single day. And teens … such a special group, who deals with way too many decisions and drama on a daily basis.”
The duo, who have been managing the large women’s consignment sale for eight years, are implementing these pre-sale events during the Matthews spring sale March 13 to 18 at Levine Senior Center.
Shoppers will be able to gain admission with their written pledge to “pay it forward” during pre-sale shopping events 7 to 10 p.m. March 12 or the half-price pre-sale shopping event 6 to 9 p.m. March 16.
“We discovered it was much more meaningful for our shoppers to take personal ownership by making a difference in specific ways that mattered to them,” Williams said. “For instance, it may be significant for one woman to support another by babysitting for a single parent, and then another woman may be much more invested by choosing to serve at a pregnancy center or food pantry.”
Green Jeans donates unsold clothing to Common Heart, Zab’s Place, Key Resale Shop and other charities.
