PELHAM, N.Y. -- Shoppers at HomeGoods in Pelham will have the opportunity through June 29 to support cancer care and research while shopping.
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.
HomeGoods customers can participate by making a contribution at the register to “Help Families Fight Cancer,” with 100 percent of the proceeds benefiting the Jimmy Fund.
Customers also have the opportunity to purchase a reusable shopping bag for 99 cetns featuring artwork by Dana-Farber’s Jimmy Fund Clinic pediatric patient Allisa Freiberger, nine, of Westwood. HomeGoods will contribute 50 cents 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.”
