Since its beginning, Friedman’s has enjoyed giving back to the community with their annual back to school event, where they partner with the YMCA and local schools to provide children who are in need a pair of shoes.
Sue Friedman, Owner of Friedman’s Department Stores, explained, “This $2,000 donation will be going towards our back-to-school giveaway. Children in need will get a backpack full of school supplies and a pair of shoes.”
