As a Neighbor of Choice, our various divisions support community and charitable initiatives that are important to customers and Associates through numerous in-store fundraising programs and community partnerships. In addition to the great work being done at our office and distribution locations, our stores focus their fundraising and awareness campaigns on organizations that help children, women and families, aid education, assist the disadvantaged, and help to prevent domestic violence. Thanks to the dedication and passion of our Associates and customers, we have raised substantial funds and awareness for these important organizations and causes. As a Company, we are constantly searching for new ways to give back and are proud of our collective efforts.
In the U.S.
At T.J. Maxx and Marshalls, we believe doing business responsibly means working with our Associates and customers to create value in the communities we serve.
T.J. Maxx works to enrich communities and improve lives through in-store fundraising programs, local store support of community events and corporate donations to our long-standing, nonprofit partners. Beginning in 1984, T.J. Maxx and Save the Children have worked together to provide early education, literacy, nutrition and physical fitness programs to children in our nation’s poorest, rural communities. This partnership began with the sponsorship of 113 children and, with each new T.J. Maxx store sponsoring a child, has grown to include support for nearly 1,000 U.S. children. Through in-store fundraising and awareness campaigns, T.J. Maxx also supports Autism Speaks, an organization dedicated to research in the causes, treatment and prevention of autism, and the Joslin Diabetes Center, the world's largest diabetes research center, diabetes clinic and provider of diabetes education.
At Marshalls, we are proud to help raise funds and awareness for many charitable organizations that help to improve the lives of those in need. Marshalls has been committed to generating awareness for the prevention of domestic violence for two decades. During the month of October, designated as Domestic Violence Awareness month, Marshalls makes a donation, based on customer shoe purchases, to the National Domestic Violence Hotline. Additionally, for the past 17 years, Marshalls has partnered with the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF) through an annual in-store fundraiser, donations from The TJX Foundation and store support of local JDRF chapters. These combined donations support JDRF’s mission to find a cure for diabetes. Marshalls also supports St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, the nation's leading pediatric and research center devoted solely to children with cancer and other catastrophic diseases, by participating in its annual Thanks and Giving campaign.
At HomeGoods, we care about the families we serve and have focused our charitable mission in an area that meaningfully impacts the lives of so many customers – helping families fight cancer. Together, HomeGoods Associates and customers have strongly supported this mission for many years, and we actively leverage our fundraising efforts toward this common goal. HomeGoods partners with St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital and the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, both leading cancer research and treatment centers. In 2011, HomeGoods was recognized as St. Jude’s “New Corporate Partner of the Year” because of our highly successful, in-store fundraising effort for its annual Thanks and Giving campaign. In addition, HomeGoods has continued our long-term support of Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and The Jimmy Fund, through our HomeGoods’ annual in-store fundraising campaign, participation in the annual Jimmy Fund Walk, and sponsorship of the Jimmy Fund Golf program.
Winners and HomeSense believe in enriching the lives of women and children in our communities. We proudly support the Canadian Women's Foundation, an organization committed to ending violence against women, moving low-income women out of poverty and empowering girls with confidence. For the past eight years, our Associates’ and customers’ efforts have raised funds to support the needs of 450 shelters and over 30,000 women and children in Canada. Winners is also a sponsor of the Ovarian Cancer Canada Walk of Hope, an annual fundraising walk dedicated to providing support, education and research for ovarian cancer. Additionally, Winners and HomeSense have supported the Sunshine Foundation: Dreams for Kids annual campaign. This is a national Canadian charity that grants wishes in response to the individual dreams of children with severe physical disabilities and life-threatening illnesses. For over a decade, Winners and HomeSense customers and Associates have helped to raise millions of dollars to make these children’s dreams a reality.
Marshalls, in Canada, believes in supporting families, so they may raise happy and healthy kids in our communities. To accomplish this, Marshalls supports Kids Help Phone, Canada’s only phone and online counseling service for youth. Professional counselors are available any time of the day or night, 365 days a year, to help young people deal with concerns, large or small.
TJX Canada also supports Look Good Feel Better, an organization dedicated to helping improve the self-image, appearance and quality of life of people undergoing cancer treatment.
The guiding principle that underpins all of TJX Europe’s charitable activity is “a real future for children.” All of our community partnerships aim to help children worldwide fulfill their potential by providing educational opportunities, supporting children with life-threatening illnesses and disabilities, and helping children living in poverty.
The Uganda Community Project is our pan-European initiative to help educate children and develop sustainable trade opportunities in a remote western region of Uganda. TJX Europe has been partnering with Save the Children to build classrooms and provide access to primary schooling for over 10,000 children in 12 remote, conflict-affected communities. Recently TJX Europe has extended its support to sourcing products from local artisans to help promote trade, provide skills and employment, and support long-term social and economic improvement in the communities.
Since 2004, T.K. Maxx and HomeSense in the U.K. have raised significant funds in support of long-term partners Cancer Research U.K. and Comic Relief. The funds raised for Cancer Research U.K. are dedicated to children’s cancer research. The funds raised for Comic Relief help people fight poverty and social injustice in the U.K. and Africa. In 2011, we again participated in Comic Relief U.K.’s much-loved fundraising campaign, Red Nose Day, partnering with iconic designer Vivienne Westwood and Liberty Art Fabrics, and selling over 300,000 T-shirts, bags and scarves in our T.K. Maxx stores.
HomeSense Associates also support Action for Children, raising funds for disadvantaged and vulnerable children in local communities through awareness campaigns, merchandise sales and fundraising. In 2011, customers hung 50,000 decorations on Christmas trees in stores and bought specially designed Bags for Life and Christmas cards to support these projects.
T.K. Maxx in Ireland supports long-term charitable partner Enable Ireland, which helps children with disabilities live their lives to their full potential. T.K. Maxx in Germany supports Children for a Better World, a charity dedicated to fighting child poverty and hunger, by supporting local organizations that provide care, a hot meal and activities for the most disadvantaged children and young people in Germany. In Poland, T.K. Maxx Associates and customers voted to select a number of their favorite local charities and support these causes through sales of Bags for Life, Christmas merchandise sales and corporate donations.
