BAGGING HUNGER FOR SENIORS NATIONWIDE

HOW IT WORKS

Macy’s believes in celebrating and enriching communities, and showing up in times of need. When the COVID-19 crisis hit in March 2020, Macy’s chose Meals on Wheels as a critical cause to support through the pandemic and beyond. To date, Macy’s, its customers and its colleagues have donated more than $2.4 million and countless volunteer hours to help homebound seniors facing food insecurity and isolation.

CREATING IMPACT

In 2020, Macy’s brought its iconic Thanksgiving Parade to seniors served in Staten Island – not to celebrate the holiday, but to celebrate them. One of these seniors was Julia McKinney, who told us, “I wasn’t expecting all this! I just really appreciate the help that they do, Meals on Wheels. They are very nice people."

THE RESULT

Macy’s has helped Meals on Wheels deliver 240,000+ meals and friendly visits to homebound seniors nationwide. On top of that, its employees have created over 2,600 handmade greeting cards (and counting!) that have been delivered alongside meals, letting seniors know they are not alone.
