For the second year in a row, Macy’s, Inc. colleagues spent Martin Luther King Jr. Day (Jan. 21) giving back.
In its debut year, the Macy’s Singing Christmas Tree was the second-most beloved float in all of the Parade, trailing close behind Santa. This year, we asked: How do you make something so impactful, even better?
Imagine skipping a cancer screening because you didn’t have enough money to fill your MetroCard, or missing a chemotherapy appointment because you couldn’t afford child care that week. Cancer affects everyone – but not everyone has access to cancer care. In partnership with Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, Macy’s and Ralph Lauren are working to change that.
Watch as Macy’s and Clothes4Souls distribute 35,000 brand new coats to those in need.
The holidays are when Macy’s shines brightest – literally. We celebrated Great Tree Lightings in communities around the country, including Chicago, Atlanta and San Francisco.
The wonder of giving comes in many forms. Macy’s is partnering with Make-A-Wish for the annual Believe campaign for the 11th year, making wishes come true across the country for children with critical illnesses. Our own colleagues are also among the more than 2.6 million people touched by the wishes granted by Macy’s. We’re sharing the special journey of one of this year’s wish kids and she comes from the Macy’s family. Meet Mia DiVenere and receive the gift of inspiration from her story.
This Giving Tuesday, the international day of giving around the holiday season, we will celebrate the way that we give back from the inside out – the North Star Relief Fund.
Clowning around is a lot tougher than it looks! That’s why our Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade clowns get a degree in it. As we gear up for the Parade, Coast to Coast steps behind the scenes at Clown U., the one-day training course for our Parade clowns. Let’s take a look at what a diploma requires in the life of a clown!
Holiday time in New York City is undeniably magical. It’s bright, festive and rich in traditions - many of them created by Macy’s. One of the traditions people look forward to every year is the Macy’s holiday window displays.
This holiday season, Macy’s invited customers to give back by participating in The Big Give Back: Buy A Coat & We’ll Donate One program benefitting Clothes4Souls.
