Shop for a Cause at Macy's on August 23

Help raise money for United Way during Tax Free Week!

Macy’s is partnering with United Way to invite customers to participate in Macy’s eighth annual national “Shop For A Cause” charity shopping event on August 23, 2014. Customers can purchase shopping passes from United Way of Southeastern Connecticut now.  Macy’s “Shop For A Cause” is a unique one-day-only shopping event created to support local charities’ fundraising efforts, which has helped raised more than $46 million for charities across the country since 2006.
“Over the past eight years, Macy’s annual ‘Shop For A Cause’ has raised more than $46 million for local and national charities, providing our associates and customers an opportunity to give back to those organizations that touch their hearts each and every day,” said Martine Reardon, Macy’s chief marketing officer. “Giving back is a key component of Macy’s culture. We are honored to offer our customers an easy and convenient way to make a positive difference in their communities and in the lives of others, while enjoying great savings at Macy’s.”

Macy’s has provided United Way of Southeastern Connecticut with shopping passes to sell for $5 each, and United Way will keep 100% of every shopping pass it sells. The more United Way sells, the more money it will raise!

By purchasing a shopping pass from United Way, customers support Education, Income and Health – the building blocks for a good quality of life - while enjoying a day of spectacular discounts, entertainment and special events at Macy’s. Pass holders will receive special discounts on most regular, sale and clearance purchases all day, but some exclusions apply.
