    Avon, CO. – (July 31, 2014) - Macy’s and Can Do Multiple Sclerosis invite customers to participate in Macy’s ninth annual national “Shop For A Cause” charity shopping event on Saturday, August 23, 2014. Macy’s “Shop For A Cause” is a unique one-day-only shopping event created to support local charities’ fundraising efforts, and has helped raised more than $44 million for charities across the country since 2006. Customers can participate in this year’s event by purchasing shopping passes from Can Do MS now.

    “Macy’s is committed to giving back, both nationally and to our local communities,” said Martine Reardon, Macy’s chief marketing officer. “For the last eight years, Macy’s ‘Shop For A Cause’ program has provided our customers and associates a unique opportunity to show their support and give back to their local community organizations, while also enjoying great savings at Macy’s.”

Pass holders will receive special discounts on most regular, sale and clearance purchases all day, but some exclusions apply.

    Macy’s has provided Can Do MS with shopping passes to sell for $5 each. Can Do MS will keep 100 percent of every shopping pass it sells. The more Can Do MS sells, the more money it will raise!
