Lord and Taylor announced on Monday that its stores in Manhasset and Garden City will participate in a company-wide initiative to raise funds on Saturday, April 30 to benefit Habitat for Humanity.

Habitat for Humanity is an organization that partners with people all over the world to help them build or improve a place they can call home. 

To date, the organization has helped more than 6.8 million people worldwide.

The retailer said in a statement that it was expanding its partnership with the organization after it helped raise money for a Queens family to rebuild their home in November.

“With Mother’s Day approaching, we are all reminded how important family is,” Liz Rodbell, president of Hudson’s Bay and Lord & Taylor, said in a statement. “Habitat for Humanity helps build homes in which families can thrive, and Lord & Taylor is proud to support their efforts.”

With the purchase of a $5 ticket that will go to Habitat for Humanity customers will receive two 30 percent off single -tem coupons, company officials said.

Company officials also said 1 percent of all proceeds, up to a maximum of $15,000 received on the Lord and Taylor website on Saturday will also go to the non profit organization.

Floors of the Garden City and Manhasset stores will be designed with fun and engaging animations, company officials said.

At the Garden City store, there will be a birdhouse building in partnership with Lowe’s, a mommy-and-me selfie station, zumba class, Kate Spade candy bar, fashion presentations, and DJs. 

At the Manhasset store, there will be bra fittings, DJs, cake samplings by Cakes A La Moda, complimentary face painting and a relaxation presentation by Om Sweet Om Yoga, the company officials said.

Customers will also receive a 20 percent savings pass, including 10 percent of cosmetics and fragrances purchases.

Tickets are available for purchase at any Lord & Taylor store.
