Sears joins Make-A-Wish campaign

With the holiday season right around the corner, Oxford’s Sears Hometown Store is joining more than 1,200 other Sears locations nationwide with a holiday campaign for Make-A-Wish.

Called “Season of Wishes,” the funds raised in the campaign will allow Make-A-Wish to help more children with life-threatening medical conditions experience the powerful and oftentimes, life-changing impact of a fulfilled wish.

Through Dec. 31, customers are invited to make incremental donations of $2, $5 or $10 in support of the campaign. Sears also will have the following promotions:

• Donate Now, Save Later with Award Cards – Customers who donate $5 to Make-A-Wish now through Nov. 22 or Dec. 10-13 will receive a $10 Award Card to be used toward a future purchase; valid Dec. 3-9 or Dec. 26-31, respectively.

• Nov. 25 is Wish Wednesday – Customers are encouraged to donate $5 to Make-A-Wish in order to take advantage of the locations’ Thanksgiving Door Busters and Black Friday Deals early (from 5 p.m. – 8 p.m.), avoiding the chaos and long lines while supporting a cause.

• A Very Merry Santa Sale at Sears Hometown Stores and Sears Outlet Stores – Customers who donate $5 to Make-A-Wish will receive an extra 10 percent off everything storewide; valid at Sears Hometown Stores and Sears Outlet Stores from Dec. 17-24.

“We are always looking for ways to help improve the lives of others, and are excited to take part in this national holiday campaign that will help raise funds for children who are more than deserving,” said John Hunter, owner of the Sears Hometown Store in Oxford

Through the Season of Wishes holiday campaign; Sears Hometown & Outlet Stores, Inc. will donate 100 percent of customer donations to Make-A-Wish. For more information, visit wish.org.
