More than $6.7 million donated since partnership began in 2018
MEMPHIS, Tenn., April 14, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — ARS/Rescue Rooter, a privately held Memphis-based company and the nation’s largest provider of air conditioning, heating, and plumbing services, presented a $1.3 million check to ALSAC, the fundraising and awareness organization for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital®, following a year-long fundraising initiative across its more than 75 branches.
Through sales events, employee giving, direct mail campaigns, branch donations, and event sponsorships, ARS/Rescue Rooter’s employees and customers have raised more than $6.7 million for St. Jude since 2018, the first year of a partnership between ARS/Rescue Rooter and St. Jude, the only National Cancer Institute-designated Comprehensive Cancer Center devoted solely to children.
“At ARS, we believe in making a positive impact in the communities we serve, and one way to do that is by supporting St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital,” said Scott Boose, CEO, ARS/Rescue Rooter. “We’re honored to have raised over $6.7 million for this amazing organization, and we’re committed to continuing our partnership with St. Jude to help children survive and thrive.”
Donations to St. Jude support efforts to cure childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases and help ensure that families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing, or food, so they can focus on helping their children live.
“We are so deeply grateful to ARS/Rescue Rooter customers and employees. Their contributions are a great example of what can be achieved when individuals and organizations come together to make a difference,” said Richard Shadyac Jr., President and CEO of ALSAC, the fundraising and awareness organization for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. “Their generosity and this purpose-driven partnership help advance the lifesaving mission of St. Jude and impact the more than 400,000 kids around the world who will get cancer this year.”
ARS’s support helps provide cutting-edge treatments not covered by insurance at no cost to families. This support also helps ensure that St. Jude can continue to treat kids worldwide, including kids in communities across the ARS network.
Boose said St. Jude was chosen five years ago as a partner because of its commitment to honor founder Danny Thomas’s vision to build a world-class research institution devoted to improving healthcare for children worldwide.
