Farmingville, NY – At the May 11 Town Board meeting, Councilman Kevin LaValle honored Macy’s at Smith Haven Mall in Lake Grove as the Business of the Month for May in Council District 3. The award is given each month to a business deserving special recognition for the positive impact they have on the community. Recently, Macy’s donated $1,000 in gift cards to the Town of Brookhaven’s Youth Bureau to purchase cosmetics for its Prom Program. In addition to their donation to the Town, Macy’s frequently participates in community outreach programs including the Smithtown Food Pantry, Adopt a Family, The American Heart Association, Make a Wish Foundation, and more. They also decorate nursing homes for the holidays and provide shopping sprees and makeovers for sick children. Macy’s employs more than 250 local residents at the Lake Grove store.
Councilman LaValle said, “We often think of Macy’s as a big national company, but the people who work there are local residents who really care about our community. I thank Christine, Kelly and Michelle for their support of our Prom Program and for all they do to make life better for so many people in need.”
