Registration under way for upcoming Herberger’s Community Day fund-raiser

Registration is under way for a twice-yearly fund-raising event at Herberger’s.

The department store has scheduled its next Community Day for Nov. 13. Participating nonprofit groups can sign up at the Web site at to sell savings books and raise money for their activities.

Participating groups sell savings books for $5. The books contain a coupon good for $10 off purchases at Herberger’s as well as seven other coupons offering additional savings.

Participating groups keep all the proceeds from book sales.

In 2009, Community Day events raised a total of $10 million for nonprofit organizations.

“Providing this fund-raising activity is extremely important to our company,” said Bug Bergen, president and chief executive officer of Bon-Ton Stores, which operates Herberger’s as well as stores under other names. “The event provides nonprofit groups with the resources to raise funds that support the community and fulfill their missions.”
