Across the U.S., more than 15 million households struggle to put food on the table every day.1 At TJX, we are committed to helping vulnerable families and children access the resources and opportunities they need to build a better future. One of the ways we help is by supporting hunger relief organizations like Feeding America.
Since 2015, T.J. Maxx, Marshalls, and HomeGoods have teamed up to raise money for Feeding America food banks one weekend in November. Sierra and Homesense joined the effort in 2017. Thanks to generous in-store donations from our customers, together with a donation from The TJX Foundation, the campaign in 2018 allowed us to provide more than $2.5 million to support food banks across the country. As a result, we helped provide over 27 million meals2 to people in need…from Spokane, Washington, to Dallas, Texas, to Auburn, Maine.
In addition to this November fundraising campaign, many TJX Associates are involved year-round in efforts to support hunger relief. By volunteering their time at local food banks and holding food drives at our distribution centers, stores, and corporate offices, our Associates champion the cause and make a hands-on difference. In all, through in-store fundraising, donations from The TJX Foundation and stores, local food drives, and volunteer work, we support more than 300 hunger relief organizations across the U.S. annually.
