Plymouth Community United Way (PCUW) is partnering with Macy’s for the retailer’s eighth annual Shop for a Cause charity shopping event on Saturday, Aug. 24.
Customers can purchase $5 shopping passes from the local United Way office 7:45 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday-Wednesday, Aug. 19-21, and 6-9 p.m. Friday, Aug. 23, at the Music in the Air Concert in Kellogg Park in Plymouth. 100 percent of the proceeds from pass sales remain in the community to support programs focusing on basic needs, education and stability.
Customers can use the pass in every Macy’s store for a 25 percent discount on regular, sale and clearance merchandise, including designer brands, throughout the store, as well as 10 percent off electronics, furniture, mattresses and area rugs on Aug. 24. And, they will be eligible to win a $500 gift card, no purchase necessary.
Over the last 8 years, Shop for a Cause has raised more than $46 million for local and national charities.
“We appreciate the continuing support of Macy’s as well as their employees who live in our community,” said Marie Morrow, PCUW president. “They demonstrate our LIVE UNITED philosophy.”
PCUW has been supporting the Plymouth, Canton and Western Wayne County community since 1944 by funding programs for homeless veterans, shelter and counseling for domestic violence victims and their families, senior bus transportation, housing for the developmentally disabled, emergency food, rent and utility assistance, and many others.
