Belk Giving Back to Local Charities

BECKLEY– Just in time for back-to-school, the Belk Charity Sale returns offering customers exclusive discounts on top designer brands and the opportunity to support local schools and charities in Beckley. This private ticketed event will take place on Saturday, August 25 from 6 a.m. to 10 a.m. and the first 100 customers in each store will receive a Belk gift card ranging from $5 to $100.

Since 2012, the Belk Charity Sale has contributed more than $50 million in donations to over 6,000 nonprofits across the South.

To access the private shopping event, customers must purchase a $5 ticket and that $5 ticket price will be deducted from their total purchase when they return to shop on August 25. Tickets can be obtained from partnering charities and schools (see attached for complete list), and 100 percent of proceeds will stay with that organization. Tickets can also be purchased directly from Belk and all in-store ticket sale donations will be divided among that store’s partner charities.

All stores across Belk’s 16-state footprint are participating in the Back-to-School Charity Sale, each partnering with organizations and schools in the communities they call home. The list of partnering charities in Beckley is below.

  • Mt. Hope Lions Club
  • Raleigh County Humane Society
  • VFW Auxiliary 4326
  • Concord Cheerleaders
  • Shady Spring Dance Squad
