Vita Travel Store and Briggs & Riley present: A Case for Giving!
VITA TRAVEL STORE JOINS NATIONALLUGGAGE TRADE-IN CHARITY INITIATIVE FROM BRIGGS & RILEY LOCAL CHARITY (CASA ESPERANZA) TO BENEFIT FROM LUGGAGE DONATIONS
CITY, STATE… February 10, 2015 – VITA TRAVEL STORE has partnered with Briggs & Riley’s creating a charity program called “A Case for Giving,” taking place in the 12 W. Anapamu store February 13 – March 1, 2015, benefitting local charity, Casa Esperanza as part of a nationwide cooperative effort. More than one hundred and fifty stores have come together to help those in need by donating gently used luggage through a new Briggs & Riley trade-in program. For the last two weeks of February, the public is invited to come into the Santa Barbara store with a gently used rolling bag and trade it in for a new rolling bag from Briggs & Riley, earning $100 credit for a used Briggs & Riley bag and a $50 credit if trading in another brand’s rolling bag.
“We are proud to work with Casa Esperanza and other retailers nationwide to make a true difference in the lives of people who are in such need of luggage. ” Greg Bellowe Managing Member, Vita Travel Store.
“Luggage is very much needed by many organizations such as foster homes, battered women’s shelters, and organizations like Ronald McDonald House. We are very pleased to introduce “A Case for Giving,” Briggs & Riley’s 1st annual luggage trade-in program, a nationwide event designed to help those who need luggage and reward our customers for doing their part. The idea was sparked by conversations with foster care leaders telling me to imagine the elation of their kids going to live with a family but sadly having to gather all their belonging and put them in a garbage bag. It made me realize what a wonderful added purpose our products can have,” said Richard Krulik, CEO of Briggs & Riley.
