Macy’s holds 9th annual Shop For a Cause


First Posted: 8/18/2014

Patrons are invited to attend and participate in Macy’s and the March of Dimes’ ninth annual national “Shop for a Cause” event Saturday. This charity event is a one-day-only shopping event created to support local charities’ fundraising efforts.

Since it’s inception in 2006, the program has raised more than $44 million for thousands of charities across the country.

“Macy’s is committed to giving back, nationally and to our local communities,” said Martine Reardon, Macy’s chief marketing officer. “For the last eight years, Macy’s Shop For A Cause program has provided our customers and associates the opportunity to show their support and give back to their local community organizations while enjoying great savings at Macy’s. We are honored to partner with March of Dimes as our national in-store beneficiary and to offer our customers an easy and convenient way to make a positive difference in the lives of others.”

Macy’s has designated March of Dimes, the leading nonprofit organization in support of pregnancy and baby health, as its national beneficiary of all proceeds of sales of “Shop For A Cause” savings passes in Macy’s stores and on macys.com on Saturday.
