Supporting Community Programs
An important part of jcpenney's heritage is caring about our communities and improving the quality of life in the places where we live and work. Giving back is an important way that jcpenney and its Associates can contribute to our community – whether through the gift of time, a financial contribution or both.
Associates also participate in community programs and local volunteer opportunities throughout the year. Company sponsored non-profit partnerships, as well as programs that enable Associates to give based on their own personal passion, make it possible for us to support the communities in which we live and work in a variety of ways.
GIVING TOGETHER Campaign
For over 80 years, jcpenney Associates have supported the United Way through the Company’s annual giving campaign. In fact, in the past 20 years, Associates and the Company have contributed more than $275 million to the United Way.
Now supporting both the jcpenney Afterschool Fund and the United Way, the GIVING TOGETHER Campaign offers Associates the chance to support specific causes that are critical to their community, such as providing children with access to life-enriching afterschool programs or making possible a broad spectrum of health and human services.
jcpenney believes volunteerism is vital to a healthy community. Our Associates participate in thousands of charitable activities each year – from group projects through the Company's "Just Caring People" Associate volunteer organization, to individual contributions of time and resources in their communities.
