Feeling Charitable?

Feeling charitable? Or feel like going shopping?  Here’s a way to combine both –  Community Health Alliance of Pasadena is participating in Macy’s 2007 “Passport-in-Store” Shopping Benefit. Now in its 25th year, this special event has raised more than $25 million for charities that provide services that benefit those with HIV/AIDS.

CHAP is selling special $10 tickets that will entitle you to 20% off all apparel and accessories and 10-15% off all other items (with a few exceptions) on Saturday, September 29. The more CHAP supporters visit the store that day, the greater CHAP’s chances to receive additional funds raised by the event. Ticket holders may also enter a drawing for a spectacular shopping spree. Participating Macy’s stores include Macy’s Beverly Center, Pasadena (Lake Ave.), Sherman Oaks, South Coast Plaza, Fashion Valley/Mission Valley, Palm Desert, Fashion Show Mall Las Vegas. Tickets are available by calling Ellen Johnson at CHAP, (626) 398-6300 ext. 21. Or, leave me a comment and I’ll get a ticket to you.

HIV/AIDS is increasingly a disease of the poor. Funds raised by CHAP will be used to provide primary medical care to low-income, uninsured patients with HIV. 


Also, my church is gathering items for foster youth who will soon be emancipated from Hillsides.
