Macy’s helps local charity raise funds and awareness for breast cancer patients undergoing and recovering from treatment through the national “Shop For A Cause” charity shopping event
Riverside, Calif.– For the 2nd year, Macy’s is partnering with The CARE Project, Inc. and inviting customers to participate in Macy’s eleventh annual national “Shop For A Cause” charity shopping event, taking place Friday, Aug. 26 through Sunday, Aug. 28, 2016.
Customers can begin purchasing shopping passes from The CARE Project, Inc. now. Macy’s “Shop For A Cause” is a unique shopping event dedicated to supporting local nonprofit organizations’ fundraising efforts.
Formerly a one-day initiative, this year Macy’s has extended “Shop For A Cause” to a weekend-long event. Since 2006, the program has helped raise tens of millions of dollars for charities throughout the country, and more than 5,000 charities signed up to participate last year.
“At Macy’s, we believe in supporting the communities where our customers and associates live and work,” said Holly Thomas, Macy’s group vice president of cause marketing. “That is why we are so proud of Shop For A Cause, which has helped raise tens of millions of dollars for charitable organizations since 2006. With this year’s extension to a weekend-long event, we’re offering even more opportunity to support local and national causes, and thanking our customers with special savings at Macy’s.”
Macy’s has provided The CARE Project, Inc. with shopping passes to sell for $5 each, and the organization will keep 100 percent of the proceeds for every shopping pass that it sells.
By purchasing a shopping pass from The CARE Project, Inc. customers support breast cancer patients undergoing and recovering from treatment and can enjoy spectacular discounts at Macy’s stores all weekend long from Friday, Aug. 26 through Sunday, Aug. 28, 2016
“Our motto at The CARE Project, Inc. is “Never stop caring!” Help us CARE for others while enjoying this savings pass”, said The CARE Project, Inc., Carrie Madrid, president.
