Frank Catalfumo is a 91 year old shoemaker and repairer in Bensonhurst, Brooklyn. He first opened the doors to F&C Shoes in 1945 and continues to work five days a week alongside his son Michael. If you’re ever in the area, make sure to stop by the shop and listen to one of Frank’s amazing stories about life in Brooklyn back in the day.

With the generous support of its customers and employees, Macy’s gives back more than one million dollars a week to organizations spanning across health and medicine, the environment, education, and the arts.

In late December, I was asked to direct a commercial that shares the stories of several people who have personally benefited from these donations. This was truly an amazing project and I could not be more honored to have been a part of it.
