In addition to clothing donations, brands are also offering to help the homeless and families in need, the company said.
The company said it has received $2.3 million in donations in the past year, which is up from $1.7 million in 2017.
“As part of our ongoing efforts to assist the homeless, we have been making a commitment to provide free and confidential clothing to the underserved,” said Lauren Smith, senior vice president of corporate communications for Macy’s Inc., which operates stores in more than 20 countries.
“We also have been working with a number of nonprofits, including the Salvation Army and the Salvation Corporation of America, to help them make their clothes available to our customers and to our suppliers.”
The company said that in 2016, it also provided $2 million in food assistance to the nation’s homeless.
The Salvation Army, for example, said that it had made nearly 2 million clothing donations.
In 2018, the Salvation Corp. of America helped deliver 2 million shirts to homeless shelters.
