ACE Cash Express associates raised $20,561 during ACE’s annual fundraising event, the Give A Little Campaign, for the St. Jude Affiliate Clinic at Novant Health Hemby Children’s Hospital. The clinic, located in Charlotte, North Carolina, is one of eight St. Jude affiliate clinics across the country that provides life-saving medical care and access to clinical trials for children with cancer and blood disorders.
“When you have a sick child, the only thing you should have to worry about is being there for them,” said Dr. Jessica Bell, pediatric oncologist and clinic lead at the affiliate clinic. “We appreciate this generous gift that will help local families in their fight against pediatric cancer.”
The Give A Little Campaign is a national in-store fundraiser that supports charities chosen by ACE employees that help children, support education and promote financial literacy. By supporting the St. Jude Affiliate Clinic at Novant Health Hemby Children’s Hospital, ACE can help improve the health of children in our communities, one person at a time.
“We are proud to support the St. Jude Affiliate Clinic at Novant Health Hemby Children’s Hospital,” said Eric Norrington, Senior Vice President of Public Affairs for Populus Financial Group. “Thanks to our employees and customers, we are able to make a meaningful impact in the communities we serve.”
Nationally, the 2019 Give A Little Campaign raised more than $196,104 for the local chapters of charities across the country including AdoptAClassroom.org, Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation, American Red Cross, Back on My Feet, Big Brothers Big Sisters, Boys & Girls Clubs and St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
