Volunteerism

Macy’s, Inc.’s commitment to giving back is best demonstrated through our Partners in Time Employee Giving and Volunteerism Program, which extends to every Macy's and Bloomingdale's location. We believe that giving back is about understanding the role we play in our communities and living up to our commitments. Through volunteerism, we are able to build a connection that extends past the walls of our stores – between our customers, our colleagues, and our communities.

Partners in Time: Since Partner's in Time began in 1989, our employees have given nearly 3 million hours of community service to thousands of charities in our local communities. Our charity partners equate that to a value of more than $55 million!

In 2017, our employees participated in more than 3,200 community projects, totaling more than 153,000 hours of time dedicated to their communities.

Giving back is a core value of our company and a hallmark of how we work. Our employees embody this each and every day, and we're proud of our employees’ commitment. Read more.

Annual Give Back Day: One of our signature Partners in Time events is the annual Give Back Day when volunteers from Macy’s stores and business functions come together to positively impact the communities in the company’s New York City and Cincinnati headquarters as well as other cities. In 2017, more than 400 employees in New York City and about 200 in Cincinnati participated. Read more.

MLK Day of Service: In honor of the work of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and in the spirit of giving back to our local communities, ONYX, our Employee Resource Group representing Blacks United in Leadership and Development, worked with Partners in Time to coordinate a first-ever companywide MLK Day of Service, which took place on Monday, Jan. 15, 2018. More than 400 Macy’s and Bloomingdale’s employees volunteered 1,400 hours of community service across the nation, bringing along friends, children, and other family members. Macy's hosted service projects in Atlanta, Cincinnati, Los Angeles, Miami, New York City, San Francisco, Tempe, and Tulsa. Read more.
