Macy's Holiday Program to Benefit Special Olympics Which Started on Sept. 19

ATLANTA, Oct. 18, 2007 /PRNewswire/

Macy's holiday program will benefit 10 Special Olympics state programs in the southern United States.

Macy's will donate $10 for every customer who enrolls in Macy's "Thanks for Sharing" program in the company's southern stores to charities including Special Olympics programs in Alabama, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, North Carolina, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas and Virginia.

Funds raised will assist the programs in each respective state. The Macy's "Thanks for Sharing" program runs through Dec. 31, 2007.

Customers will be asked to enroll at the check out register and be charged a $25 fee on their Macy's credit card for the "Thanks for Sharing" program. In early 2008, the customers will receive a Macy's gift card worth 10 percent of the amount they spent (with the exception of furniture and fine jewelry purchases) through Dec. 31, 2007.

Macy's purchases through the "Thanks for Sharing" program will help support thousands of Special Olympics athletes.
