(Paramus, NJ) September 27, 2013 – Macy’s provided a $5,000 grant to Children’s Aid and Family Services to help children in foster care improve their academic achievement. The grant will provide educational support and advocacy to children who are usually behind in school when they enter the agency’s care. They need one-on-one professional tutoring help to succeed in school and move on to an independent future.

“We’re grateful for the generous contribution from Macys,” says Bob Jones, Ph.D., president & CEO of Children’s Aid and Family Services. “One of the most important gifts given to the children in our care is a quality education. We believe it is the cornerstone of their future.”
