Red Cross and Saks Partner for Saks Loves Your Cause
The American Red Cross St. Louis Area Chapter is partnering with Saks Fifth Avenue in a fundraising initiative to make a tangible difference in the lives of people here in St. Louis.
Saks Loves Your Cause is a national campaign that ensures money raised through our local Saks store at Plaza Frontenac in Frontenac, MO will support needs right here at home, with donations to the Red Cross St. Louis Area Chapter.
During the month of February, Saks Fifth Avenue customers may designate the Red Cross to receive 5 percent of their total purchases made using their Saks credit card. For online shoppers, 5 percent of all purchases made on Saks.com using a Saks credit card can also benefit the Red Cross. The company will make a maximum total donation of $100,000 nationwide.
“Through Saks Loves Your Cause, people can help the St. Louis Red Cross meet the needs in our community every day,” said Cindy Erickson, Regional CEO of the Red Cross. “We are 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.”
Donations will help the St. Louis Area Chapter of the Red Cross provide lifesaving services and programs in this community every day, whether it's responding to a home fire, supporting a major disaster, collecting blood, teaching skills that can save a life, or assisting our military members and their families.
The American Red Cross Greater St. Louis Region is a proud member agency of the United Way, which makes significant investments every year in Red Cross services.
