Macy's puts out a call to charities for its annual 'Community Shopping Day'

April 28, 2010 | 11:00 am

Macys Macy’s is looking for charities to participate in its annual “Community Shopping Day” charity shopping event, which has raised more than $5 million for local charities since 2004.

This year’s event will take place on Saturday, May 15, in 16 different Macy’s stores, including outposts at the Del Amo Fashion Center in Torrance, at the Westfield Fashion Square in Sherman Oaks, in Costa Mesa at South Coast Plaza, and at the Victoria Gardens shopping center in Rancho Cucamonga.     

Here's how it all works: Macy’s donates shopping passes to participating charities, and the shopping passes are then sold by the charitable organizations for $10 each in the days leading up to the event. (The organizations keep 100% of the proceeds from the sale of the shopping pass.)

Pass holders can then redeem their passes at select Macy’s stores on May 15 to receive 20% off most men’s, women’s, kids and accessories merchandise, 10% off most home items and 25% off a single item (shopping passes are also now being sold at Macy’s stores through May 15).

Interested charities can register online here, or by calling (800) 251-1431.
