We’re uniting once more with St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital® for their Thanks and Giving campaign to continue our holiday giving tradition that last year resulted in donations totaling $21.9 million – the single largest corporate partner contribution ever to the St. Jude campaign.
Kmart associates, Shop Your Way® members and customers show us every year that the holiday season is more than being thankful for the health of our families. This campaign is about helping those who aren’t as fortunate. When it comes to helping the kids and families of St. Jude, we’re happy to start the holiday season a little early, especially given that September is National Childhood Cancer Awareness Month.
St. Jude recognized us as its Corporate Partner of the Year in 2010, 2011 and 2013 and last year Kmart was the honored recipient of the “Extraordinary Partner Performance Award,” recognizing the record-breaking fundraising achievement. The funds we raise help support research and treatment in the ongoing battle to end childhood cancer and other deadly diseases. Our associates and Shop Your Way members have raised more than $59.2 million through in-store and online donations through Kmart.com/StJude and stjude.org.
We are proud to be one of St. Jude’s leading corporate partners and our role in supporting its important mission. Click here for more information and videos regarding our efforts.
