Kmart Raises $3.7 Million During St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital® Thanks And Giving® Campaign

St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital announced that its long-standing partner, Kmart, has raised $3.7 million during the St. Jude Thanks and Giving campaign.

“Thank you, Kmart for raising this incredible gift for the families of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital during the 2018 St. Jude Thanks and Giving® campaign. This brings Kmart’s overall fundraising total to $116 million since 2006 – more than any company in the history of St. Jude,” said Richard C. Shadyac, president and chief executive officer of ALSAC, the fundraising and awareness organization for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.  “Thousands of Kmart associates have empowered millions of your customers to pledge support of St. Jude.  Their passion and commitment make it possible for St. Jude to ensure no family ever receives a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food because all a family should have to worry about is helping their child live. We are so thankful for our long-standing partnership. We’re confident that together, St. Jude and Kmart will continue to do great things to achieve our mission: Finding cures. Saving children.®

“All children should have the opportunity to chase their dreams,” said Peter Boutros, chief brand officer for Kmart. “That’s why we created the ‘Care to Dream’ movement in 2018 and we’re thrilled to make this significant contribution to St. Jude on behalf of our store associates, customers and members. What a tremendous team effort to support such a worthwhile cause. Through donations at checkout, online and through the purchase of merchandise like our St. Jude bear holiday ornament and ‘Care to Dream’ wrapping paper designed by St. Jude patients, our customers demonstrated their love for St. Jude.”
