Macy’s will partner with New Beginning Center to invite customers to participate in Macy’s eighth annual national “Shop For A Cause” charity shopping event on August 24, 2013. Customers can purchase shopping passes from NewBeginning Center now. Macy’s “Shop For A Cause” is a unique one-day-only shopping event created to support local charities’ fundraising efforts, which has helped raised more than $46 million for charities across the country since 2006.
“Over the past eight years, Macy’s annual ‘Shop For A Cause’ has raised more than $46 million for local and national charities, providing our associates and customers an opportunity to give back to those organizations that touch their hearts each and every day,” said Martine Reardon, Macy’s chief marketing officer. “Giving back is a key component of Macy’s culture. We are honored to offer our customers an easy and convenient way to make a positive difference in their communities and in the lives of others, while enjoying great savings at Macy’s.”
Macy’s has provided New Beginning Center with shopping passes to sell for $5 each. New Beginning Center will keep 100 percent of every shopping pass it sells. The more New Beginning Center sells, the more money it will raise!
By purchasing a shopping pass from New Beginning Center customers supportprograms and services for families affected by domestic violence while enjoying a day of spectacular discounts, entertainment and special events at Macy’s. Pass holders will receive special discounts on most regular, sale and clearance purchases all day, but some exclusions apply.

Each month we introduce you to another member of our amazing team and learn more about what they do here at New Beginnning Center! This month we want you to meet Crystal Lopez – our BIPP Program ManagerWhat is a Battering Intervention and Prevention Program (BIPP)?A BIPP is specialized group and individual counseling designed to hold perpetrators of domestic violence accountable for their behaviors and teach them how to make non-abusive choices. The primary focus of a BIPP is to increase victim safety and reduce battering.
Battering is a systematic pattern of using abusive behaviors (physical, sexual, verbal and emotional) that occurs over time. The goal is to control an intimate partner through fear.
Clients in a BIPP must:
Who is Appropriate for BIPP?
Any person who is abusive (physically, sexually, verbally and emotionally) towards an intimate partner (spouse, girlfriend/boyfriend, dating relationship). The abusive behaviors are targeted at the intimate partner. Battering of an intimate partner is not an anger management problem, as a batterer is not likely to be abusive towards any other person.
We currently have 8 groups to include
1. One (1) women’s BIPP group
2. Three (3) parole groups
3. Four (4) groups
4. Starting a Spanish speaking group in the month of July
We serve approximately 250 individuals per year
