LOFT Matches Customer Support to Local Teachers


NEW YORK, July 27, 2021 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- LOFT announces their partnership with DonorsChoose, an education nonprofit empowering U.S. public school teachers to request classroom materials and experiences. In its first partnership with the nonprofit, LOFT is asking customers to give to DonorsChoose during check-out in store and online at LOFT.com.

Across LOFT storefronts nationwide, customers can opt in to give to teachers when they check out at the cash register, and their donations will locally fund DonorsChoose projects posted by educators within 20 miles of their own communities. Customers shopping at LOFT.com can also donate as they complete their online purchases and LOFT will match donations up to $50,000.

"Teachers are cornerstones for the future and for the ambitions of our youth," said Donald Kohler, Brand President of LOFT. "Through our ongoing work and our first partnership with DonorsChoose, LOFT is committed to strengthening communities by empowering the educators who teach them."

LOFT introduced the LOFT Loves Teachers program back in 2019, which offers 15% off year around for educators. The offer will be combinable now through August 31. The brand's collaboration with DonorsChoose continues its mission of supporting and giving back to local communities.

"LOFT's gift to teachers is a powerful way to engage communities with their local schools," said Charles Best, founder of DonorsChoose. "Through this initiative, communities across the country will help students access those materials and experiences that will enrich their education, especially in time for the new school year."

LOFT customers can donate to DonorsChoose whenever they shop in-store or online at LOFT.com.
