Running through June 30, Abingdon-area HomeGoods shoppers will have the opportunity to support cancer care and research while shopping at the off-price home fashions retailer. More than 275 HomeGoods stores nationwide will be participating in the 12th annual "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.
HomeGoods customers can participate by making a contribution at the register to "Help Families Fight Cancer" with 100 percent of the proceeds benefiting Dana-Farber. Customers also have the opportunity to purchase a reusable shopping bag for 99 cents featuring artwork by Jimmy Fund Clinic pediatric patient Phoebe Davis and her brother Caleb.
HomeGoods will contribute 50 cents for each bag purchased to the Jimmy Fund.
"HomeGoods and its dedicated customers have raised more than $3.1 million for Dana-Farber and the Jimmy Fund. We are so grateful for their continued support in our fight against cancer and helping families facing this disease," said Suzanne Fountain, director of the Jimmy Fund, in a press release.
