Macy’s Holiday Windows will fire up once again in Union Square come November 19th, 2010.
Volunteer, won’t you?
“The SF SPCA is also seeking volunteers to interact with jolly holiday shoppers and the many visitors to the Windows. Volunteers representing the SF SPCA answer questions about the animals and collect donations in front of the Windows on Stockton and O’Farrell streets. Those interested in volunteering are encouraged to sign up online at www.sfspca.org/support/volunteer.”
And the old-school displays are based upon the Yes, Virginia animated movie? Apparently.

“Senator Yee Receives “A+” from Paw PAC for 100% Record on Animal Issues
Yee is one of four Senators to receive top score from California’s Political Action Committee for Animals
SACRAMENTO – Senator Leland Yee (D-San Francisco) received an “A+” grade for his 100 percent voting record on animal issues from Paw PAC – California’s political action committee for animals. Yee was one of only four Senators to receive an “A+” score.
The Paw PAC scored legislators on 8 bills ranging from fur labeling to animal cruelty.
“How we treat our animals is really a testament to how compassionate we are as a society,” said Yee. “These bills not only provide additional protections for animals, but also help humane consumers who are looking to do the right thing with their pocketbook.”
Paw PAC is a nonpartisan, nonprofit political action committee dedicated to the passage of humane laws and election of humane legislators.”
