Shop to support charities nearby and abroad

YMCA facilities across the nation will benefit this month from purchases made at JCPenney.

Each month, the jcp cares program invites customers to round up their bill to the nearest whole dollar and donate the difference to a new featured non-profit.

Next month, the chain will highlight Dress for Success, which provides interview and work clothing to low-income women worldwide, including from a branch office in Tampa.

JCPenney not your thing?
