As part of Comfort Solutions’ “Never Stop Dreaming” brand mission, the company’s 2012-2013 outreach program with St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital culminated last week with the donation of $250,000 to St. Jude, a global leader in finding cures and saving children from cancer and other deadly diseases.
The donation was presented on June 4 to Julia Kivistik, St. Jude Senior Director of Strategic Partnerships and Workplace Giving, and Russ Ellis, Strategic Partnerships Liaison, by Comfort Solutions’ senior VP of Business Development and Innovation Owen Shoemaker, and Sales, Marketing and Merchandising Coordinator Geri Frank.
Commenting on his company’s commitment to St. Jude (where no family ever receives a bill, largely in part because of donations from everyday people), Comfort Solutions president and COO Dave Roberts said “This is an extremely worthy cause which impacts children on a global basis.
“When we consider the dedicated hospital staff and the many patients and parents that we met over the past year, we’re very proud to have helped support the dreams of families with critically ill children at St. Jude.”
The outreach program included additional contributions from sales of Comfort Solutions beds by company licensees and participating retailers, as well as the donation of 200 mattress sets and 400 bed pillows to the Memphis Grizzlies House, a short-term housing facility on the campus of St. Jude.
“Going forward,” Roberts said, “we plan to continue to support the important lifesaving work of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, which was established on the premise that ‘no child should die in the dawn of life.’”
