How they are participating
On November 27, Simon Property Group will be collecting donations at Simon malls nationwide to support two important charitable organizations - the Simon Youth Foundation (SYF) and American Red Cross. SYF’s mission is to educate at-risk youth. At 23 locations nationwide (21 of them in the company's shopping malls), we house actual high schools instructing students who have been unsuccessful in the 'traditional' high school environment. SYF works with local school districts so graduates receive their school's diploma. Dollars are being collected on #GivingTuesday at Simon Guest Services at each mall. In addition to raising funds, we are encouraging our malls to host their own #GivingTuesday events. There are already events planned at SouthPark in Charlotte, NC and Southern Hills Mall in Sioux City, IA.
