Saks Partners With American Red Cross and Local Charities
Saks Loves Your Cause! When you use your Saks Fifth Avenue credit card during the month of February, Saks will give 5 percent of al registered purchases back to charity. The Saks Loves Your Cause initiative will benefit The American Red Cross and select local organizations, keeping support within each Saks Fifth Avenue store’s immediate community.
“After Saks Fifth Avenue’s successful charity initiative in 2012, we’re excited to be able to continue with the February promotion for a second year. We appreciate our customers’ charitable involvement and again look forward to giving back locally with this exciting national program,” says Steve Sadove, chairman and CEO of Saks Incorporated.
“We’re delighted to be partnering with Saks for the Saks Loves Your Cause campaign, and grateful for their support of Red Cross work in communities across America,” says Neal Litvack, chief development officer for the American Red Cross. “Because of the generosity of Saks and their customers, the Red Cross is able to be there when people need our help.”
Customers at the Biltmore Fashion Park location in Phoenix may select between Fresh Start Women’s Foundation, the American Heart Association and The American Red Cross Grand Canyon Chapter for their 5 percent contribution.
