Now, through June 29, Trumbull HomeGoods shoppers will have the opportunity to support cancer care and research while shopping at the off-price home fashions retailer.
More than 365 HomeGoods stores nationwide will be participating in the 15th annual “Help Families Fight Cancer” campaign benefiting the Jimmy Fund, which supports pediatric and adult cancer care and research at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute in Boston, Mass.
HomeGoods customers can participate by making a contribution at the register to “Help Families Fight Cancer,” with 100% of the proceeds benefiting the Jimmy Fund.
Customers also have the opportunity to purchase a reusable shopping bag for $0.99 featuring artwork by Dana-Farber’s Jimmy Fund Clinic pediatric patient Allisa Freiberger, 9, of Westwood, Mass.
HomeGoods will contribute $.50 to the Jimmy Fund for each bag purchased.
“We are grateful for the continued generosity of HomeGoods’ loyal customers who have raised millions of dollars for the Jimmy Fund and Dana-Farber over the last 15 years,” said David Giagrando, assistant vice president of corporate partnerships at the Jimmy Fund. “We are so appreciative of their commitment to finding cures for cancer, and we’re thrilled to partner with HomeGoods again this year to help more families facing this disease.”
“We’re proud of the long-term partnership we’ve had with Dana-Farber Cancer Institute supporting the Jimmy Fund,” said Robyn Arvedon, HomeGoods spokesperson. “Our customers and associates have made a powerful impact on this important cause and we are truly inspired by their commitment to helping families fight cancer.”
