The Power of Partnership
Thanks to the dedication of partners like HomeGoods, St. Jude Children's Research Hospital® continues to make progress in our lifesaving mission: Finding cures. Saving children.® Your support means that St. Jude can lead the way the world understands, treats and defeats childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases.
Because of your compassion, families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food—because all a family should worry about is helping their child live.
HomeGoods: Committed to Thanks and Giving®
Once again, you stepped up as a valuable partner in the St. Jude Thanks and Giving campaign. Thank you for encouraging customers to make a difference for the kids of St. Jude as they shopped at more than 800 HomeGoods and HomeSense stores throughout the holiday season.
Customers responded by donating $1, $3 or $5 at checkout, allowing their purchase to mean even more. You also offered four limited-edition snow globes with 50 percent of the purchase price benefiting St. Jude.
Making your commitment to St. Jude more personal, you invited St. Jude to participate in regional kickoff calls and share our lifesaving research and work with hundreds of employees nationwide. HomeGoods added a bright note by integrating patient artwork and stories into associates' communication materials.
Your support makes a difference. Again, you were a top fundraising partner for St. Jude, raising an impressive $8.5 million for St. Jude this year alone.
You brought the comforts of home to St. Jude families during your annual visit to St. Jude. At your fall festive-themed event, you generously shared toy donations, gift card giveaways and a big red wagon ride. Our time together provided such joy to our patients.
Employees Stepping Up
HomeGoods employees went above and beyond for patients and their families as they were the presenting sponsor of the Boston St. Jude Walk/Run to support Childhood Cancer Awareness Month. As a presenting sponsor in Boston, you brought a team of corporate employees to host a HomeGoods tent where attendees could make craft packs to send back to the kids of St. Jude. That's not all; your cozy tent included HomeGoods furnishings, allowing participants to rest, take pictures and enjoy themselves. This delightful home-away-from-home served to bring the essence of HomeGoods to the St. Jude Walk/Run experience.
It's just another example of how your employees live out their passion and dedication to our lifesaving mission—and we are grateful.
Thankful for All You Do for the Kids of St. Jude
Because of your powerful partnership, St. Jude is able to save kids, regardless of their financial situation. And while St. Jude may not be located in your community, our research and discoveries are. We freely share the discoveries we make, and every child saved at St. Jude means doctors and scientists worldwide can use that knowledge to save thousands more children.
Thank you, HomeGoods, for your gifts of giving and compassion, and for being a beacon of hope for St. Jude children and families.
