Big Brothers Big Sisters

Have you heard about our Charity Umbrella Program???

Each month Stuff Etc supports a Linn County and Johnson County charitable organization. We have umbrellas hanging upside down at our register terminals, encouraging customers to throw in their spare change, etc.

We also encourage donations by offering a shopping discount for customers who put $1 in our charity umbrella. This has been a fun and successful project. Stuff Etc enjoys working with our community to support local organizations.

In August Stuff Etc chose to support the Big Brothers Big Sisters of Linn and Johnson County.

We raised $1972.00 for the Johnson County BBBS.

We raised $864.00 for the Linn County BBBS.

Big Brothers Big Sisters’ goal is to expand horizons through the power of one-to-one friendships.

The Today Show!

You MUST watch the Today Show tomorrow morning! It is not often I would recommend tv shows through the blog, but this is something you HAVE to watch.

Kevin Kasson (a son of a long-time consignor) is up for Esquire magazine’s “Best Dressed Real Man in America”. Kasson will be on the Today Show tomorrow morning when they announce the winner. He is one of 5 finalists from thousands that applied. He will be wearing a suit tomorrow that he purchased at our Iowa City location. He is known for his classic style of such stars as Bogart, Sinatra and Cary Grant.

Good luck Kevin!!!
