Disney star joins St. Jude patient for Kmart shopping spree
Peyton List, one of the stars of Disney's Jessie,
joined St. Jude patient Brooke for a toy
shopping spree at Kmart in Los Angeles. The
toys will be given to the kids of St. Jude.
What’s could be more fun than a toy shopping spree? For St. Jude patient Brooke, it was a toy shopping spree with Peyton List, one of the stars of the Disney show Jessie.
St. Jude partner Kmart hosted Brooke at its Los Angeles store on November 25. Brooke was given an exciting chance to shop for toys for all the boys and girls at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. St. Jude saved Brooke’s life, treating her for a brain tumor.
Peyton surprised Brooke as the little girl walked to the toy section, then the two set off to collect toys to be sent back to St. Jude in Memphis, Tennessee.
“We can’t thank Kmart enough for the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity of having a shopping spree with Peyton," said Laila, mother of St. Jude patient Brooke." More importantly, the gifts they selected will enhance the lives of St. Jude patients who are unable to go home for the holidays, and the millions Kmart raises annually helps St. Jude provide lifesaving care to kids like Brooke at no cost to families. God bless Kmart and St. Jude!”
It was just another way that Kmart gives to the kids of St. Jude. Since Kmart became a supporting partner of the St. Jude Thanks and Giving campaign, Kmart shoppers and Shop Your Way members have raised more than $58 million and is routinely the campaign’s top fundraiser. This year, Kmart is set to present St. Jude with a record St. Jude Thanks and Giving total.
“The St. Jude Thanks and Giving campaign is a reminder to all that the holiday season is a time to be thankful for the healthy family and friends in our lives and give to those who are not,” said Tim Austin, vice president of Kmart Retail Services. “Our holiday season at Kmart would not be the same without St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. We’re always humbled by the outpouring of support from our Shop Your Way members, customers and associates, and are so proud to once again be named Corporate Partner of the Year.”
