Local retail store participates in giving event


Retail store Stage is starting "30 Days of Giving" this month by allowing customers to donate to Oklahoma Twisters Shining Stars, a special needs cheerleading team.

Oklahoma Twisters Director of Special Needs Leslee Boswell said because they are a nonprofit group, they have to raise money to cover uniforms, transportation to competitions, hotel accommodations, food and registration fees.

"We don't want funding to be an issue that prevents [special needs children] from participating," Boswell said. 

She said parents of special needs children already have high expenditures for things like medical bills, so any donation to help cover the cost of their sport will help.

"We were honored that a wonderful organization like Stage sees that these girls are working hard," Boswell said. "We're not in the Chickasha community, so we're honored [to receive donations from the Chickasha store]."

Customers that donate will also receive a Community Counts Savings Pass, which provides a 30 percent discount on regular, sale and clearance items and a 10 percent discount on Yes! items and cosmetics and fragrances.

Stage will make a donation to each local organization as well.

"In our towns, Stage associates care about our customers and our communities and that is why we are committed to supporting local groups that make a positive impact," said Michael Glazer, president and CEO of Stage Stores in a press release.

Stage is a department store with 848 locations across the county that caters specifically to small and mid-size towns. Each location is participating in "30 Days of Giving."

The Chickasha store is located at 623 W. Grand Ave.
