The Buena Vista Mavericks 4-H Club is selling tickets to the Macy’s seventh annual “Shop for a Cause” charity shopping event, which will take place on August 25, 2012. Macy’s Shop For A Cause is a unique one-day-only event created to support local charities’ fundraising efforts.
Macy’s has provided Buena Vista Mavericks with shopping passes to sell for $5 each. The club will keep 100% of every ticket it sells. The more tickets sold by the Mavericks, the more money they will raise for their Community Service projects.
The Mavericks have invited 4-H Horse Project clubs throughout Maricopa County to attend a food packing session this fall for “Feed My Starving Children,” an organization which provides special food packages for undernourished children in 70 countries throughout the world. “This year we are planning to pack 10 million meals from our Tempe site, which will be enough to feed more than 27,000 children,” said Janine Skinner, FMSC Representative. Proceeds from the Macy’s ticket sales will be donated to FMSC to cover the cost of the food packed during that Community Service event.
By purchasing a shopping pass to the event from the Buena Vista Mavericks, customers will enjoy a day of spectacular discounts, entertainment and special events, with the added bonus of knowing they are contributing to helping kids help kids. “I am so grateful that the Mavericks could be a part of this Macy’s event.. This is an amazing opportunity and I look forward to working with both organizations to help others,” said Hannah Schaefer, Mavericks Project Leader.
This fundraiser, and upcoming community service event, are just two examples of the many opportunities for youth leadership and citizenship provided through 4-H. 4-H clubs throughout the state in Projects ranging from Horse to Livestock to Robotics (and everything in between) are now beginning enrollment for the 2012/13 year; please visit extension.arizona.edu/4h for more information about clubs near you.
