The American Red Cross today announced it is partnering with Saks Fifth Avenue in a fund raising initiative to make a tangible difference in the lives of people here in the Triangle area. Saks Loves Your Cause is a national campaign that ensures money raised through our local Saks store at Triangle Town Center will support needs right here at home, with donations to the Red Cross Triangle Chapter and other local charities.
From now through February 28, 2013, Saks Fifth Avenue Triangle Town Center customers may choose the American Red Cross among several charities to receive 5% of their total purchases made using their Saks credit card. For online shoppers, five percent of all purchases made on Saks.com using a Saks credit card will also benefit the Red Cross, for a maximum total donation of $100,000. In addition, OFF 5TH store customers may make financial donations to the Red Cross of any level when checking out at the registers.
“Through Saks Loves Your Cause, people can help the Red Cross Triangle Chapter meet the needs in our community every day, while getting their shopping done at Saks!,” said Barry Porter, Regional Executive Director. “We’re thrilled to partner with Saks and so appreciative of their employees and customers who are helping the Red Cross help our neighbors who need us.”
The Red Cross kicked off the campaign with Saks Fifth Avenue Triangle Town Center associates on January 31, 2013.
Donations will help the Red Cross provide life saving services and programs in Triangle area every day, whether it's responding to a home fire, supporting a major disaster like Hurricane Sandy, collecting blood, teaching skills that can save a life, or assisting our military members and their families.
