Harlem World Magazine loves our veterans and their families, that’s why we love this program from our friends at Macy’s.
SHOP, THE NEW HARLEM WORLD SHOP!
In the spirit of July 4th, Macy’s invited customers to give back to America’s veterans and military families from Harlem to Hollis with a special fundraising event – “Macy’s Salutes Those Who Serve.”The donations benefited national non-profits that support and empower veterans and military families to be leaders, team builders and problem solvers in their local communities.
From Thursday, June 28 through Sunday, July 8, 2018, shoppers gave a $3 donation on macys.com and receive a 25 percent off savings pass that was used on select merchandise (exclusions and restrictions apply). One hundred percent of the $3 donations benefit three veteran and military family-focused organizations: Blue Star Families, Bunker Labs and Team Rubicon. Each organization received $1 from each donation.
MORE: These organizations support current and former members of the U.S. Armed Forces and their families in a variety of ways.
- Blue Star Families: Creates communities to support and empower military families through research, career development and caregiver support. Funding from this campaign will help build resiliency and community connections to support serving military and their families.
- Bunker Labs: Built by military veteran entrepreneurs, this non-profit empowers military veterans to start and grow businesses. Through local chapters across the U.S., veterans are inspired, equipped and connected to thrive as entrepreneurs and innovators. Funding from this campaign will support the expansion of Bunker Lab’s free resources and events to more cities in the U.S.
- Team Rubicon: Empowers veterans to give back to their communities through skills-based volunteering to support disaster relief and rebuild communities. Funding from this campaign will mobilize veteran volunteers to provide assistance to vulnerable populations whenever and wherever disaster strikes.
