CASA is happy to celebrate Macy’s as our December Partner of the Month!

Macy’s reached out to CASA last month to learn more about our affordable housing mission.  They are already big givers of time and money to local causes around the country, supporting organizations fighting hunger, providing clothing, responding to disasters, and granting the wishes of kids with critical illnesses.  It was a delight to hear from them and their hope to expand their generosity to include CASA!

To kick off our new partnership, Macy’s is making a $10,000 gift to CASA’s Housing Solution Fund, the fund that fills the gap between what our tenants can afford to pay in housing expenses and what it costs CASA to maintain high quality rental homes.  This incredible gift will allow us to move three families out of homelessness and into a permanent home for one full year!  We can’t wait to welcome home these new tenants in 2021.

“We depend on the support of our community to help us do our work,” said Mary Jean Seyda, CEO of CASA.  “It felt like a real Christmas miracle to get a call from Macy’s with their offer of friendship and support – especially this year, when things are so uncertain and difficult for our tenants.  We are looking forward to many years of partnership, working together to end homelessness in our community.”

“Macy’s is committed to supporting the causes most important to our communities around the country,” says Kelli Lewis, Director of Corporate Giving at Macy’s, Inc.  “We are proud to support the crucial services CASA provides especially during this great time of need.”

Thank you, Macy’s, for reaching out and for being such an outstanding example of corporate philanthropy and partnership.
