There was a very special holiday shopping experience recently for members of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Palm Beach & Martin Counties, thanks to Macy’s.
The exciting event, which has become a tradition, took place locally at the Wellington Green, Boynton Beach, Gardens and Boca Town Center Macy’s stores, as well as Treasure Coast Square.
On Dec. 6, Wellington Senior Director & Store Manager Leslie Adametz, along with store associates, welcomed little brothers and little sisters to a VIP shopping experience before the store opened. They were able to social distance while enjoying snacks and receiving goody bags and a gift card.
Staff colleagues helped the youth pick out gifts. The youngsters made their selections thoughtfully, and many chose something for parents or siblings, rather than for themselves. They enjoyed finalizing their purchases at cash registers themselves.
Along with Adamatz, Geoff Leiberman worked as coordinator for the regional event.
