HomeGoods has also partnered with St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital since 2010 and Dana-Farber Cancer Institute since 2001, both leading cancer research and treatment centers. In our stores, we participate in St. Jude’s annual “Thanks and Giving” campaign, raising funds and awareness to support St. Jude’s mission to advance cures for pediatric cancer. For several years, we have also sold exclusively designed holiday water globes in our HomeGoods stores, with 50% of the purchase price being donated to St. Jude. In the U.S., Associates have also continued their long history of participation in the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk to raise funds for breast cancer research and support programs.
TJX Canada has supported The Sunshine Foundation of Canada for nearly 20 years, helping fulfill dreams of seriously ill, physically challenged, and abused children. Associates volunteer their time and donate money to this program. Additionally, in 2017, our Decal Campaign/Corporate Match raised more than $860,000 for the Sunshine Dreams for Kids program. To celebrate the organization’s 30th anniversary in June 2017, more than 700 TJX Canada Associates came together with The Sunshine Foundation alum and staff members to form “The Largest Human Image of a Sun.” Marshalls in Canada also teams up with the Kids Help Phone, a counseling service for youth, where professional counselors are available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, to help young people deal with concerns, large and small.
