Downtown Jonesboro businesses to give to Salvation Army Friday night

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) -

Downtown businesses in Jonesboro are ready for the "Downtown Gives Back," event Friday night.

The event has several businesses in the downtown area giving 10% of their proceeds to the Salvation Army.

Those businesses include One Love People, The Loose Thread, Tiny Toes Mommy and Me Boutique, Godsey’s and Gearhead Outfitters.

Seth Freeman is a store manager for Gearhead, and said the event is a way to give back to the community.

He explained what it was like knowing they had this opportunity to help people who may need a little assistance this Christmas.

“It's an awesome gesture in terms of giving back to the less fortunate in that sense,” Freeman said. “It kinda gives you a great aspect of what Jonesboro is really all about. Everyone coming together as a whole, as a downtown association, and just being able to contribute.”

Gearhead will also have a contribution box at their downtown store to take donations like bed sheets, clothes and toiletries to give to the Salvation Army.

The event begins this Friday night at 5.
