Save Money While You Fundraise

Thanks to a partnership between Syms, the discount clothing store, and YAI, from May 3-9, you can take 10 percent off your purchase, with 5 percent donated directly back to YAI!

A socially conscious company, Syms in Elmsford, NY has employed two people with disabilities from YAI's Westchester Supported Work and Training Program for more than two years. When the store's manager approached Marlene Kelly, a YAI Employment Training Specialist, about partnering for a community service shopping event, she immediately thought of the Central Park Challenge. "At the end of the week, Syms will tally all of the sales generated by the YAI coupons and give us five percent back," Marlene explained.

Simply click on the coupon, print it out and take it to your nearest Syms for a great value and an easy way to give back to YAI.

This is a great example of how an existing community partnership can make for virtually efortless fundraising. Do you have a story like this to share? Shoot us an e-mail at cpc@yai.org.
