As the country comes together to honor our veterans, we’d like to take a moment to salute the men and women of the U.S. Armed Forces who work tirelessly to defend and protect our freedom, and recognize those who are part of a military family.
Since 2013, we’ve raised more than $13 million for America’s veterans and military families. This year, through our July Macy’s Salutes Those Who Serve charitable round-up campaign and the generosity of our customers and colleagues, we raised more than $1.2 million. And we’re proud that one hundred percent of the donations are benefiting two veteran and military family-focused organizations – Blue Star Families and Bunker Labs.
Blue Star Families helps create communities of mutual support and stability for military families who experience frequent moves and deployments. And Bunker Labs is a nonprofit that inspires, equips and connects military veterans, active duty, and military spouses and family members with the support they need to start-up and grow successful businesses.
Watch our latest Beyond the Boardroom episode where Macy’s, Inc. Chairman & CEO Jeff Gennette talks with leaders from both of these organizations, as well as Christopher DiFonzo, a veteran in the Macy’s family, to hear about how we’re making an impact and raising critical funds for America’s veterans and military families.
