October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month; it’s a cause near and dear to the heart of our company. Read on to learn more about the efforts Macy’s and our Associates are putting forth to fight breast cancer, and the story of how one special necklace is making a difference in the search for a cure.
A connection to our local communities is at the core of who we are at Macy’s, Inc. So when Hurricane Harvey slammed into Southeast communities in Texas and Louisiana causing widespread destruction, we weren’t surprised when Associates immediately stepped up to ask what they could do to help.
Giving back is always in fashion at Macy’s. This summer, nearly a thousand Macy’s, Inc. Associates nationwide united to make a difference in their local communities. To all our Associates who gave back, thank you. Prepare to be inspired by these photos and stories!
What this Macy’s team is doing to give back will inspire you. Read our employee giveback testimonial from Macy’s director of Visual Production, Tracy Swan, and why her journey is one of a kind.

Our company’s commitment to creating a more sustainable environment is reflected in the inspiring work of our Macy’s Go Green Employee Resource Group (ERG). We’re collecting the inspiring moments from Macy’s volunteers around the country. From coast to coast, here’s what you did to make Earth Week just a little more green.
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.
The Magic of Giving is essential to how Macy’s makes not only the holiday season, but the entire year special. Our employees truly reach the heart of what it means to give back to the community. Thank you for exemplifying how volunteerism is an important part of Macy’s culture.
Warm your heart while you warm yourself. From Tuesday, Oct. 25 through Sunday, Oct. 30, for every coat purchased at Macy’s stores and on macys.com, one brand new coat will be donated for those in need.
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.
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.
