Supporting Organizations That Deliver Services to Families and Children Facing Health Challenges

UN SDGs: 3

A key part of our community relations work involves supporting organizations that deliver services to families and children when they are facing health challenges and life-threatening illnesses, as well as funding organizations with missions aimed at spurring advancements in care and cures. Our Associates, our customers, and their families often have a personal connection to health-related causes and are eager to participate in volunteer opportunities and join in fundraising efforts that help affected individuals and families.

For more than three decades, TJX has supported the Dimock Center, a Massachusetts-based community health center recognized nationally in the U.S. as a model for the delivery of comprehensive health and human services in an urban community. Dimock aims to break down barriers to care and correct racial health inequities by providing Massachusetts residents access to high-quality, low-cost health care and human services, regardless of their ability to pay. TJX has supported Dimock’s substance use, mental health, and trauma recovery programs, which work to improve access to care and critical resources to help individuals progress in their journeys. In Fiscal 2024, TJX contributed to the creation of a new, state-of-the-art addiction recovery center for men, designed to support those at the critical step between detox and residential recovery. In line with Dimock’s mission to provide care for the whole person, TJX also supports a variety of Dimock’s Child and Family Services programs. Through sponsorship and Associate volunteerism, TJX has helped Dimock increase access to education and other opportunities for more than 1,000 children and families through their early childhood education programs and family shelter. In Fiscal 2024, we were also able to help rebuild a clothing closet, which allows Dimock to provide community members, including patients in Dimock’s residential recovery homes, with essentials such as clothing, shoes, coats, and more. These items help patients start their recovery journeys in comfort and dignity.

For 30 years, Marshalls has partnered with the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF) in the U.S. to help the organization find a cure for type 1 diabetes and to improve the lives of children and adults living with it. Through an annual in-store fundraising campaign and support of other local JDRF events, Marshalls is helping to fund new research and support programs. We are proud that Marshalls has been named a Diamond Partner, helping to fund research that may one day eliminate this disease. Marshalls has also supported the Alzheimer's Association for 11 consecutive years, raising funds and awareness through in-store fundraising programs to support Alzheimer's research, care, and support.

For many years, TK Maxx customers and Associates have raised millions for Cancer Research UK for Children & Young People and Enable Ireland. TK Maxx has partnered with Cancer Research UK since 2004 and is proud to be the largest corporate supporter of its research for children's cancers. The support continues to fund life-saving research to help more children and young people survive cancer with a better quality of life. TK Maxx has also worked with Enable Ireland since 1997, and as the organization’s largest retail partner, TK Maxx helps support children with disabilities and their families across Ireland. In Fiscal 2024, TK Maxx continued ongoing support for both organizations through donations from TK Maxx’s Give Up Clothes for Good program. Give Up Clothes for Good encourages customers and Associates in the U.K. and Ireland to drop off their used clothes, accessories, and homeware, year-round, at their local TK Maxx store. These items are donated to Cancer Research UK and Enable Ireland shops where they may be sold to help raise funds to support life-saving research and families of children with disabilities.
