Macy’s and the Y Partner to Fund Camp Scholarships
Donate your Change at Macy's in the Exton Square Mall between May 1 - May 22 and Help Change a Kid's Life
For the second year in a row, Macy’s is partnering with the Y to give kids a summer camp experience. From Tuesday, May 1, to Sunday, May 22, Macy’s Exton Square Mall invites shoppers to round-up their in-store purchase to the nearest dollar and donate the difference (up to $.99) to support the Y’s camp scholarship program that sends kids to summer camp at the Lionville Community YMCA.
The Y’s camp scholarship program helps kids, especially underserved youth, attend camp, where they are introduced to new experiences that build confidence and develop skills to help them reach their full potential. In 2017, Macy’s raised more than $975,000 for the Y camps nationwide, sending more than 8,000 kids to camp who would have been unable to attend otherwise.
Summer camp offers kids a fun and unique opportunity to meet new friends, explore the outdoors, discover new interests and create memories that last a lifetime. The Y is one of the largest providers of programs nationwide, conducting 1,850 day camps and 320 overnight camps across the country for youth and teens.
The partnership with the Y is part of Macy’s The Great Escape summer campaign, which features the latest fashion for the season, new designer collaborations and in-store events.
