MEMPHIS, Tenn. — ARS/Rescue Rooter presented a check to ALSAC, the fundraising and awareness organization for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. Because of generous supporters, families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing, or food – because all they should worry about is helping their child live.
In 2019, ARS/Rescue Rooter raised $427,000 from over 48 branch locations within the ARS Network as well as sponsored events. The partnership, which began in 2018, is kicking off its third year and will continue to support the St. Jude mission via promotions, employee engagement, as well as corporate-sponsored events.
“ARS/Rescue Rooter is proud to support St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital and their lifesaving mission to find cures for children with cancer and other life-threatening diseases through research and treatment,” said Luis Orbegoso, president, ARS/Rescue Rooter. “We are committed to providing comfort to not only our customers but to the communities in which we live, work, and play. Partnering with a global organization like St. Jude is a natural fit as it also calls Memphis home.”
“When Danny Thomas set out to build and sustain St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, he relied on friends from around the country and in his local community to help raise the funds and awareness needed,” said Richard Shadyac Jr., president and CEO of ALSAC, the fundraising and awareness organization for St. Jude. “That sense of community is felt through the dedication from our partners at ARS, from our very own Memphis family, who have supported us for three years now. Partners like ARS are helping us continue our lifesaving mission, and we are so thankful for this contribution.”
