From Tuesday, October 25 through Sunday, October 30, Macy’s will donate one new coat to non-profit organization Clothes4Souls for every coat purchased in the men’s, women’s, junior’s and children’s outerwear department at Macy’s stores and Macy’s.com

Macy’s partnered with Clothes4Souls to create the program in 2013 and has donated 130,000 new coats with a retail value of more than $5.2 million.

“Our program with Clothes4Souls is one that our customers and employees look forward to every fall season,” said Holly Thomas, Macy’s group vice president of Cause Marketing. “With 130,000 new coats donated to date, we’ve seen incredible impact in our local communities. It’s an honor to partner with Clothes4Souls to once again bring brand new coats to people in need, and we hope to be able to deliver another 35,000 coats this year.”

Macy’s will also offer 40 to 50 percent off a large section of outerwear during the campaign.

The distribution of the coats will happen in the beginning of November.
