WASHINGTON (AP) - It turns out small $3 donations at Macy's cash registers leading up to Memorial Day can raise big bucks for veterans.
Over the past two years, Cincinnati-based Macy's has raised $5 million for the national veteran campaign "Got Your 6." In exchange for each $3 donation, Macy's gives customers discounts of 15 to 25 percent off their purchases. About 1.7 million people have made donations.
The fundraising effort begins again Saturday and runs through Memorial Day.
