TruGreen Ramps up the holiday to Support St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital®
In an effort to boost support and giving with its community partner, St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital®, TruGreen is ramping up a customer printed mail and email campaign that involves running two St. Jude inserts in its printed campaigns this November. So far, the business has 408,000 inserts printed and ready for the billing statements and 1,050,000 planned for use in its Annual PrePay campaign.
Specifically, through its online giving campaign, customers can make a donation to St. Jude when they’re making their TruGreen online payment via MyAccount.TruGreen.com. All customers have to do is log in to their account and select the amount they’d like to give. TruGreen is proud to partner with St. Jude on programs like this and provide additional support through its customer credit campaign, its Lawn Stars program, a Day of Service and the annual walk/run marathon.
So far this year, TruGreen has given nearly $48K to St. Jude through Lawn Stars and customer contributions.
“The impact that St. Jude has had by freely sharing its research worldwide; the impact they've had on families’ lives; the fact that patients and families at St. Jude never receive a bill for treatment, travel, housing or food-and the fact that they're given hope is incredible,” said Wendy Radtke, TruGreen chief human resources officer and senior vice president. “We think St. Jude is a great place to invest our time and money.”
Everything St. Jude does is centered on its lifesaving mission: Finding cures. Saving children.® Treatments invented at St. Jude have helped push the overall childhood cancer survival rate from 20 percent to more than 80 percent since it opened more than 50 years ago. St. Jude won’t stop until no child dies from cancer, and that's a cause that TruGreen and its employees truly believe in and want to continue to support.
While TruGreen and St. Jude are both based in Memphis, the desire to support the efforts of St. Jude go far beyond geography. St. Jude is leading the way the world understands, treats and defeats childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases – and continued support from organizations like TruGreen means St. Jude can keep its promise that families never receive a bill for treatment, travel, housing or food, because all a family should worry about is helping their child live.
