In support of community relief and recovery following the tragic August events in El Paso, Macy’s has donated a total of $100,773 to the El Paso Victims Relief Fund, established by the Paso del Norte Community Foundation.
For immediate support, Macy’s donated $20,000 to the organization in August.
From August 6 through August 20, Macy’s stores throughout the state of Texas offered customers the opportunity to round-up their in-store purchase to the nearest dollar (up to $.99) to benefit the El Paso Victims Relief Fund, $80,773 was raised through the round-up campaign with 100 percent of the funds benefitting victims and their families affected by the tragedy.
Macy’s colleagues will present the total check donation on Monday, September 16 at Macy’s Cielo Vista.
As part of this, Macy’s would also like to recognize the significant contributions of El Paso’s local heroes – the first responders.
Any first responders who arrive at the event between 11:30 a.m. – 2:30 p.m. will receive a $25 Macy’s gift card as well as a special shopping experience with a Macy’s Personal Stylist and beauty experts.
