Herberger’s schedules fund-raising event

The Herberger’s store in Grand Junction will join in a twice-annual fund-raiser for local nonprofit organizations.

The next Community Days event is set for Feb. 27 and 28 at the store, located in the Mesa Mall at 2424 U.S. Highway 6 & 50.

Nonprofit groups sell savings booklets for a $5 donation and keep the proceeds. The book includes a coupon for $10 off purchases in addition to more than $500 in other savings to use at the store and online during Community Days.

During the Community Days event in February last year, participating groups nationwide raised a total of $4.3 million. Since 1999, the event has helped groups raise a total of more than $121 million. For more information, visit the Web site located at www.communitydayevent.com.
