On Saturday, August 23, 2014, Macy’s will host its 9th annual Shop For A Cause benefiting charities nationwide. Since 2006, Shop For A Cause has raised more than $45 Million for charities across the country. This is your opportunity to be part of the excitement.

The Asian Studies Program at UMBC is selling $5 coupons that entitle the purchaser to a discount of 25% off most regular, sale and clearance items on Saturday, August 23.

We need volunteers to help sell the coupons now (we get to keep 100% of the funds raised).  We need volunteers to help sell the coupons at Macy's (Columbia, MD) on August 23.  All funds raised will go to purchase non-perishable Asian food items for the senior citizens in our program.

To volunteer or to purchase a coupon, contact Julie Rosenthal at
