This season, JCPenney is sharing the holiday spirit by extending its annual tradition of giving sprees for Y kids to also include a special shopping experience that will benefit Y families affected by Hurricane Harvey. JCPenney hosted a private shopping experience at its Meyerland Plaza store for 10 underserved kids from the YMCA of Greater Houston, along with three families deeply affected by Hurricane Harvey. Each child received a $100 JCPenney gift card used to shop for holiday gifts for their families. Additionally, JCPenney provided the three families with a $5,000 shopping spree to assist with their recovery and holiday gift shopping needs. Families also received a washer and dryer set courtesy of LG to replace appliances damaged by the hurricane. As part of the shopping experience, Houston Texans Jadeveon Clowney and Johnathan Joseph and Houston Astro Alex Bregman surprised the deserving kids and families with a special visit, and accompanied them as they shop the JCPenney store. The all-star lineup will help kids select perfect gifts for everyone on their lists and enable them to give back to loved ones.
