We Partnered with Macy's to Provide a Shopping Adventure for 45 Littles
Can you imagine being 13 years old and having an entire retail store open just for you- and a $200 gift card to purchase whatever you would like?
Well, 45 “littles” in the BBBSPGH program got to experience this!
Macy's stores across the region opened its doors early on April 23rd for a private shopping event for 45 Littles from the Pittsburgh area! Thanks to a partnership with BBBSPGH and a $9,000 donation from Macy’s, these 45 Littles shopped with their Bigs to pick up some new items as they prepare for their future. Additionally, a check was presented to BBBSPGH leadership during the shopping event.
Many thanks to the Ross Park, South Hills Village, Monroeville, Robinson, and Pittsburgh Mills Macy’s stores for hosting us!
