Calling All Charities!


Macy’s is offering local charities a chance to participate in the Shop for a Cause program, which allows them to sell Macy’s “Discount Passes” (for $5) to raise money. Depending on how much you spend at the store – the more savings you’ll realize. So far area charities that have signed up are The Hoboken Shelter, Liberty Humane Society and HUMC Auxiliary.

Shop for a Cause – October 17, 2009

macys-logoMacy’s annual national fundraiser, SHOP FOR A CAUSE will take place this year on Saturday, October 17th. The Macy’s Newport Centre store is now actively signing up local charities to participate in this excellent fundraising opportunity.

The concept is simple: Macy’s will provide your organization with shopping passes to sell for $5 each. Every dollar you earn goes directly to your organization. The more you sell, the more you earn. In these difficult times, this is an easy, low-maintenance way to earn money for your charity, while giving your donors a terrific benefit.

By purchasing a shopping pass, customers support their favorite cause while enjoying a day of spectacular discounts, entertainment, special events and a chance to win a $500 shopping spree. This exclusive shopping pass includes 20% or 10% off most purchases all day long, and 25% off a single purchase in women’s, men’s or kid’s apparel or accessories. Of course, some exclusions apply, but this is an exceptional offer for you and your guests.

We would enjoy an opportunity to work with your organization during this exciting one-day-only event. If your organization would like to participate in SHOP FOR A CAUSE, please visit and complete an online application as soon as possible.

If you have any questions about this excellent fundraising opportunity, please call Deborah Martin at Macy’s Newport Centre, at 201-255-5200 x2427.
