Macy's is sponsoring a one-day shopping event on Saturday, Sept. 16, to benefit non-profit organizations. Buy an all-day shopping pass from the Empire Football League for just $5 and use it to save 20 percent in most departments at Macy's locations across the country.
The Shop for a Cause savings pass also includes an additional $10 off of every $50 purchase and the Empire Football League keeps 100 percent of the donation. Passes can also be purchased through the mail by sending a check (payable to Empire Football League) to AFA, PO Box 2041, Binghamton, NY 13901 or by emailing.
Shop for a Cause will be supported by network television ads featuring Susan Sarandon, an actress with national stature and a passion for community service. A Spanish-language version features Zoe Saldana, star of films including Crossroads and Drumline.
