At St. Francis Food Pantries and Shelters our most significant focuses of attention are: food, family and education. We believe that, regardless of anyone's background or current circumstances, having access to these three pillars should never have to take a backseat.

In addition to being a huge supporter of our Peanut Butter and Jelly Sandwich Making Day and providing regular bulk donations of clothing, coats, housewares, etc, Macy's sponsors several of our annual programs. These community programs, meant to enrich and entertain, are often the only opportunity that our clients have for recreation or to receive resources and a warm meal.

To name a few, our: Back to School Picnic, Family Barbecue, 1,000 Kids with Ernie [Anastos] reading program and Holiday Give Back Party are just a few of the events made possible through Macy's generous donations.

Macy's helps us to make the Back-to-School season fun and exciting! There is face painting, balloon sculpting, music and more at our annual picnic.

We came across the coolest piñata ever and brought it to the picnic! This volunteer knows that giving back induces lots of smiles and happiness.

Children at this themed party received masks and stuffed animals from Macy's. Our community programs range from children in Kindergarten to High School!

The "Positively Ernie" program touched on self-confidence, anti-bullying and more! No one ever leaves empty-handed. Thank you Macy's!
