Irv’s Luggage joins with Briggs & Riley for a trade in event to benefit local charities.
Mount Prospect, IL – FEBRUARY 11, 2016 … Irv’s Luggage joins Briggs & Riley’s national charity initiative “A Case for Giving,” taking place in both of our locations at 2200 S. Busse Rd., Mt. Prospect, IL and 3139 Dundee Rd., Northbrook, IL from February 11– February 29, 2016, benefiting two local charities, Journeys, The Road Home and DCFS of Illinois, as part of a nationwide cooperative effort.Briggs & Riley’s “A Case for Giving” works in cooperation with more than 250 retail partners to get your gently used rolling bag to someone in immediate need in local communities around the country. “A Case for Giving” salutes more than 100 charity partners of Briggs & Riley’s retailers including Ronald McDonald House, Treehouse for Kids, Make A Wish, Goodwill and local women’s shelters, men’s homes and coalitions for the homeless. Briggs & Riley is known for innovation, dependable durability, and service that have earned them a fanatical and loyal customer base of frequent travelers who demand bags that perform.
“We are very pleased to re-introduce ‘A Case for Giving’ for its second year, and we expect to be even more successful and to exceed the 2,000 bags collected for the needy last year during our first luggage trade-in program,” said Briggs & Riley CEO Richard Krulik. “The idea was sparked by conversations with foster care leaders who made me realize what a wonderful added purpose our products can have,” Krulik continued. “We’ve put our support behind making sure that those in need can transport their belongings securely, whether it be a child leaving foster care, or a woman getting out of a shelter, or a family who must travel for medical treatment.”
A CASE FOR GIVING – HOW IT WORKS:
Think about a gently used rolling bag you own. It might have even been sitting for years gathering dust in a closet.
Bring your used bag into Irv’s Luggage between February 11th and February 29th, 2016.
Receive $100 credit on a new Briggs & Riley bag if you donate a used Briggs & Riley bag, and a $50 credit on a new Briggs & Riley bag if you donate a used bag from another brand.
Leave your used bag behind knowing it will bring joy to someone who needs it.
Veronica Resa from DCFS in Illinois said, “Thank you for your generous offer to donate used luggage to children in the care of DCFS. As you can imagine our need is great and ongoing.”
Irv’s Luggage is both honored and humbled to be able to contribute to two worthy organizations working to help those in need.
