American Red Cross and Macy's Join Forces
ROTTERDAM -- Saturday, the American Red Cross of Northeastern New York "Services to Armed Forces" division (SAF) gives everyone a chance to support our returning veterans.
SAF is supporting Macy's "Got Your 6" event, part of the corporation's on-going campaign celebrating returning veterans as leaders and assets in the community, helping them re-integrate into civilian life, and putting their skills to work here at home.
The campaign, which is hoping to raise $3 million by June 9, unites the resources of the entertainment industry with a coalition of more than two dozen veteran-focused, nonprofit partners, dedicated to the idea of support-covering the backs-of returning veterans and their families. "Got Your 6" has designated 6 areas of focus for the campaign: Jobs, Education, Health, Housing, Family and Leadership, For a $3 donation at any register, shoppers at Macy's in Rotterdam Square Mall then receive 25 percent off their purchases for the entire day.
