WOODBRIDGE — Now through June 26, Woodbridge-area HomeGoods shoppers will have the opportunity to support cancer care and research while shopping at the off-price home fashions retailer.
More than 210 HomeGoods stores nationwide will be participating in the 11th annual HomeGoods “Helps Families Fight Cancer” campaign benefiting the Jimmy Fund, which supports the lifesaving mission of Dana-Farber Cancer Institute in Boston, Mass. HomeGoods customers who would like to participate can make a $1, $5, or $10 contribution at the register with 100 percent of the proceeds benefiting Dana-Farber.
“Over the past 10 years, HomeGoods and its customers have raised more than $4.6 million for the Jimmy Fund. We are so grateful for their continued support in our fight against cancer,” said Suzanne Fountain, director of the Jimmy Fund.
“For over 10 years, our customers and associates have demonstrated their passion and motivation to support the Jimmy Fund and Dana-Farber. We are grateful for their generosity and know that it will go a long way to help families fighting cancer all over the country,” said Robyn Arvedon, HomeGoods spokesperson.
The Jimmy Fund supports Boston’s Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, helping to raise funds for adult and pediatric care and cancer research and improve the chances of survival for cancer patients around the world. It is an official charity of the Boston Red Sox, as well as the official charity of the Massachusetts Chiefs of Police Association, the Pan-Massachusetts Challenge, and the Variety Children’s Charity of New England. Since 1948, the generosity of millions of people has helped the Jimmy Fund (www.jimmyfund.org) save countless lives and reduce the burden of cancer.
