Charitable Donations Guidelines
At Overton’s, we receive several hundred requests for merchandise and donations each month. We wish it were possible to honor all of these requests, since most are very worthwhile causes. Overton’s currently sponsors several national and regional organizations that benefit our customers in a variety of ways. We take great pride in giving back to the communities where we do business, however, all requests cannot be granted. Due to the enormous volume of requests, Overton’s will only contact individuals if their requests will be filled. Please know that all donation requests are given serious consideration.
