Macy's supporting veterans, military families with fundraising event
Marietta Daily Journal - 6/26/2018
Macy's, which has locations at Cumberland Mall in the Cumberland area and Town Center at Cobb mall in Kennesaw, announced that the company is inviting customers to give back to America's veterans and military families in the spirit of July 4th with a special fundraising event ? "Macy's Salutes Those Who Serve."
From Thursday through July 8, shoppers can give a $3 donation at the register or on macys.com and receive a 25-percent off savings pass that can be used on select merchandise. One hundred percent of the donations will benefit three veteran and military family-focused organizations ? Blue Star Families, Bunker Labs and Team Rubicon. Each organization will receive $1 from each donation.
These organizations support current and former members of the U.S. Armed Forces and their families in a variety of ways.
Blue Star Families creates communities to support and empower military families through research, career development and caregiver support. Funding from this campaign will help build resiliency and community connections to support serving military and their families.
Bunker Labs, built by military veteran entrepreneurs, is a non-profit that empowers military veterans to start and grow businesses. Through local chapters across the U.S., veterans are inspired, equipped and connected to thrive as entrepreneurs and innovators. Funding from this campaign will support the expansion of Bunker Lab's free resources and events to more cities in the U.S.
Team Rubicon empowers veterans to give back to their communities through skills-based volunteering to support disaster relief and rebuild communities. Funding from this campaign will mobilize veteran volunteers to provide assistance to vulnerable populations whenever and wherever disaster strikes.
