HomeGood store taking part in helping families fight cancer project

Through July 1, Coon Rapids HomeGoods shoppers will have the opportunity to support cancer care and research while shopping at the off-price home fashions retailer.

More than 200 HomeGoods stores nationwide are participating in the 12th annual HomeGoods “Helps Families Fight Cancer” campaign benefiting the Jimmy Fund, which supports pediatric and adult cancer care and research at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute in Boston, Mass.

HomeGoods customers can participate by making a $1, $5 or $10 contribution at the register to “Help Families Fight Cancer” with 100 percent of the proceeds benefiting Dana-Farber.

New to this year’s program, customers also have the opportunity to purchase a reusable shopping bag featuring artwork by a Jimmy Fund Clinic pediatric patient for 99 cents.

HomeGoods will contribute 50 cents for each bag purchased to the Jimmy Fund.

“For more than 10 years, HomeGoods and its dedicated customers have raised more than $3 million for Dana-Farber and the Jimmy Fund,” said Suzanne Fountain, director of the Jimmy Fund.

“We are so grateful for their continued support in our fight against cancer and helping families facing this disease,”

Dana-Farber Cancer Institute is a principal teaching affiliate of the Harvard Medical School and is among the leading cancer research and care centers in the United States.

The Jimmy Fund solely supports the cancer institute, raising funds for adult and pediatric cancer care and research to improve the chances of survival for cancer patients around the world.
