Macy’s joins the band of community partners looking to make a difference in the lives of women. Beginning May 1st through May 15th, Macy’s Mall at Robinson will invite customers to round up their in-store purchase to the nearest dollar (up to $.99). All funds raised will go to Magee-Womens Research Institute (MWRI) and help raise awareness and funds for women’s health.
As the nation’s largest research institute dedicated solely to women’s health, MWRI is making discoveries and advancing knowledge in many areas affecting women including: reproductive biology, breast cancer genomics and personalized therapies, HIV immunization and prevention, fertility preservation, and is a recognized leader in clinical pelvic floor research.
“We are extremely grateful for partners like Macy’s, who demonstrate a concern for the health and wellness of the women and families they serve, and take a leadership role in helping to give back in order to facilitate meaningful impact in those communities,” said Michael Annichine, Chief Executive Officer of Magee-Womens Research Institute.
