Starwood Retail Partners Supports The American Red Cross For Second Annual Giving Day to Benefit Victims of Disasters and Emergencies

April 19, 2016

CHICAGO, IL – April 19, 2016 – Starwood Retail Partners is teaming up with The American Red Cross for the second year in a row to support its nationwide Giving Day on Thursday, April 21. Each of Starwood’s 30 mall locations across the country will participate by offering shoppers who donate to the Red Cross on Giving Day the opportunity to redeem special promotions and offers from select mall retailers. 

“It is an honor to support American Red Cross by participating in Giving Day,” says Chelsie Petereit, Vice President of Marketing for Starwood Retail Partners. “We urge shoppers at Starwood locations throughout the country to contribute to this critically important organization that responds to thousands of disasters each year.” 

The American Red Cross responds to nearly 66,000 disasters every year — the vast majority of which are home fires — where a family has lost everything, including the roof over their heads, clothes, and most cherished possessions. Starwood’s effort to encourage donations supports the Red Cross as it meets its critical and lifesaving mission of helping families who have been affected by disaster or emergencies. 

All contributions made online to American Red Cross Giving Day will earn a donation receipt, which shoppers can present at any Starwood mall throughout the weekend to be eligible for special promotions and discounts at select stores. Offers are redeemable from Thursday, April 21 through Sunday, April 24. Shoppers can visit to donate and view all participating retailers.
