At Macy’s, we’re dedicated to giving back to our local communities. In celebration of the 20th anniversary of our company’s annual Bag Hunger campaign, we went to you, our associates and readers, and asked what giving back means to you.
Bag Hunger has been a symbol of our commitment to localized involvement in the communities where we live and work for 20 years. Employees across the country contribute food, money and their time to food pantries and soup kitchens. This year, we are celebrating our milestone anniversary by giving our customers the chance to give back with us through the “Make Good Cents” Campaign.
This year is special because it’s the 20th Anniversary of Bag Hunger at Macy’s. Tell us what giving means to you and your story could be featured on Coast to Coast.
Heart disease and stroke cause one in three deaths among women each year. Fortunately, we can change that statistic because 80 percent of cardiac and stroke events may be prevented with education and action.
Last fall, Macy’s began searching for associates in the New York area who had been impacted by heart disease, either personally or through someone close to them. Read on to meet the women chosen to be the heart of this year’s Go Red For Women campaign.
Macy’s employee volunteerism program, Partners in Time, is 26 years old, but not one single year has been as transparent as 2016, thanks to Yammer!

Each year in the New York City and Cincinnati central offices, Terry Lundgren, Macy’s chairman and CEO, convenes a “Breakfast Club” of cross-functional Millennial executives to share ideas. Breakfast Club networking events launched in New York City nearly 10 years ago and have included Live Healthy sports challenges; recently, they took on a Give Back element.
Through the Partners in Time annual Bag Hunger initiative, teams across the country came together this spring to feed children in need this summer, a time when school-based meals are not available and food pantry supplies run low.
Cincinnati is home to a vibrant arts community that makes the city a great place to live and work. That’s why associates in the Cincinnati Central Office heeded the invitation to “come out to play” in support of more than 100 arts and community organizations during its annual ArtsWave campaign earlier this year. ArtsWave is the largest united arts fund in the country.
Macy’s is a proud supporter of New Yorkers for Children (NYFC), whose mission is to improve the lives of youth in foster care and to engage New Yorkers in that effort. Specifically, NYFC supports efforts to improve the well-being of youth in foster care through education, career development, the acquisition of life skills, and strengthening the child welfare system.
The saying goes that giving is better than receiving, and no one shows this better than our Macy’s associates. Learn how our Macy’s teams across the country are giving back to their communities.
