The Buckle, Inc. Partners with the American Red Cross to Aid in Natural Disaster Relief Efforts

Fashion retailer raises funds for national humanitarian organization

The Buckle, Inc., (Buckle) (NYSE: BKE) a leading fashion retailer has partnered with The American Red Cross™ to assist in natural disaster relief through limited edition t-shirts and financial contributions.

In support of those impacted specifically by Hurricane Harvey, Buckle stores and buckle.com are selling “God Bless Texas” t-shirts, where 100% of the proceeds will be donated to the American Red Cross. Buckle also supports a co-branded microsite where teammates and guests can go to make a secure, monetary donation to the American Red Cross benefiting those impacted by Hurricane Irma and Hurricane Harvey, as well as disaster relief.

“Based on the number of t-shirts sold and the contributions donated through the microsite, we have already exceeded $100,000 in donations to the American Red Cross,” said Dennis Nelson, Buckle President and CEO. “Rather than stores engaging in individual campaigns, we’ve come together in this company-wide effort to support those affected by disaster.”

Buckle is pleased with the overall response from both teammates and guests getting behind this cause to support those impacted by disaster.
