874 vs. Unemployment
Dickies is selling 5,000 pairs of special edition Detroit 874 Work Pants exclusively on its website, www.dickies.com, for a purchase price of $50 per pair (with free shipping in the U.S.). For each pair of Detroit 874s sold, Dickies will donate one pair of Original 874 Work Pants to The Salvation Army of Metro Detroit to benefit unemployed workers in the metro Detroit area. To launch the program, Dickies made an inaugural contribution of 5,000 pairs of Original 874s and a monetary donation of $25,000 to The Salvation Army of Metro Detroit. If all 5,000 pairs of special edition Detroit 874s are sold, Dickies will have donated 10,000 pairs of Original 874s to The Salvation Army of Metro Detroit to assist Detroit workers in need. The Detroit 874 is available for purchase beginning Sept. 21 and will be available while supplies last. Retail value of the donated Original 874s is estimated between $20-$25 per pair, for a total retail value of up to $250,000 worth of donated garments.
