Macy's, the largest retail brand of Macy's, Inc., delivers fashion and affordable luxury to customers at more than 800 locations in 45 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and Guam. Macy's stores and macys.com offer distinctive assortments including the most desired family of exclusive and fashion brands for him, her and home. Building on a 150-year tradition, Macy's helps strengthen communities by supporting local and national charities that make a difference in the lives of their customers. The March of Dimes and Macy’s have a long history, starting when employees walked in March for Babies some 18 years ago – a tradition that continues today.
For the past 6 years, the March of Dimes has been the exclusive, national in-store beneficiary of Macy’s annual Shop For A Cause program, resulting in $22.6 million raised. This unique shopping event - originally held on one Saturday in August and held for a full weekend for the first time in 2016 - was created by Macy’s to support local and national charities’ fundraising efforts. It has helped raise nearly $50 million for charitable organizations across the country since 2006. In 2016, shoppers who made a $5 donation to the March of Dimes received a savings pass to use all weekend, August 26 to 28, at Macy’s. Over $3M was raised this year to help fight premature birth, the most serious threat to infant health in our country.
