Leave it to our friends at Macy's to show that "Volunteering is always in fashion" with their "Bag Hunger" campaign.

Originally, this campaign was launched as a rather modest employee can drive. The program grew and evolved over the years and Macy's is now celebrating 20 years of their on-going commitment to "bag hunger" as the multimillion dollar national campaign continues to help fund some of our most important programs at St. Francis Food Pantries and Shelters.

In mid-February, Macy's held their Bag Hunger Kick Off where Department Heads and Team Captains came together to discuss, strategize, and coordinate their efforts for the upcoming Bag Hunger campaign. One exciting new feature for this year permitted customers have the option to round their purchase up to the nearest dollar allowing for the difference to be donated to St. Francis Food Pantries. The Kickoff was spearheaded by Cheryl Heinonen, Executive Vice President of Corporate Communications at Macy's. Tara Troy with the help of Sarah Rattan lead the meeting. We are grateful for this unwavering support and effort that goes far beyond monetary contributions.

Macy's Bag Hunger campaign has been helping the communities it serves for 20 years! It's a month when every Macy's employee works together on this inspiring campaign.

Macy's employees volunteer their time and resources to local food pantries and shelters across the country to help end childhood hunger. Macy's Bag Hunger focuses on alleviating summer hunger in local communities - a time when food pantry shelves are often bare and school meal programs are not offered.

Macy's contributed food, donations, and volunteer time equivalent to $3 million in 2016.
The company and its associates gave food, monetary contributions, and volunteer time equivalent to more than 12 million pounds of food last year.
Since 1998, Partners in Time, Macy's volunteer program, has provided the equivalent of nearly 112 million pounds of food, including volunteer service, to benefit families facing food insecurity throughout the country.
