Hanes and Champion Launch New Hanes4Education Program
Winston-Salem, North Carolina-based Hanes Branded Printwear, a Hanesbrands Inc. supplier of T-shirts, sport shirts and fleece to the decorated-apparel industry, recently announced the launch of the new Hanes4Education program, which allows screen-print suppliers and their customers to help support K-12 schools through a unique cash-rebate offer.
The new Hanes4Education program, exclusive to the decorated-apparel industry, will be an ongoing cash-rebate offer of 10 cents per Hanes Branded Printwear or Champion printed-apparel item ordered through suppliers, with checks going directly to the K-12 school the customer designates.
“For the last four years, Hanes has been able to donate more than $1 million to schools through Hanes4Education and our partnership with Box Tops for Education,” said Rachel Newman, director of sales and marketing for Hanes Branded Printwear. “The new Hanes4Education program continues that same commitment but with some exciting changes.”
All public and private K-12 schools registered with the appropriate state agency are eligible to participate. Schools can earn a maximum of $500 per order and $5,000 total for the calendar year.
All screen-print customers can participate by providing their invoices to local schools. This includes businesses, teams, community organizations, sororities, fraternities, etc. The customer or the recipient school can complete the rebate form. There is no paperwork required of the supplier other than to provide the customer with an invoice that clearly states that Hanes Branded Printwear and/or Champion printed products were purchased.
The addition of the Champion brand to Hanes4Education will allow for schools and teams that regularly order products for team uniforms and practice wear, as well as corporate and collegiate customers, to provide their invoices to local schools. The Hanes4Education program includes orders of printed Hanes Branded Printwear or Champion T-shirts, sport shirts and fleece. A complete listing of qualifying Hanes Branded Printwear and Champion styles is available at Hanes4Education.com.
“In presenting the new Hanes4Education program to our customers, they are incredibly excited about the expansion of this program to include high schools and the addition of Champion products,” said Newman. “And as a cash-rebate program, it is easy to explain how it benefits local schools. It’s a simple and direct way for them to support K-12 schools in their communities at a time when schools are very much in need.”
