SPRINGFIELD, Mass. – Rocky’s Ace Hardware, one of the country’s largest family-owned Ace Hardware dealers with 47 locations in nine states, will host a round-up fundraising campaign in eight western Massachusetts stores and two Connecticut stores with 100 percent of all money raised going to benefit Children’s Miracle Network (CMN) Hospitals. Customers can round up their totals to the next dollar between Friday, June 24 through Monday, July 4 at the Island Pond Road and Liberty Street stores in Springfield; the Agawam, East Longmeadow, Westfield, Ludlow, Palmer and South Hadley stores in Massachusetts; and the Vernon and Stamford Connecticut locations.
“We had a successful campaign in April to raise funds for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals and wanted to build on that success,” said Rocky’s Ace Hardware President Rocco Falcone. “CMN helps the more than 10 million kids each year who rely on care from a children’s hospital get the best possible medical treatment. We are proud to give back to the communities we serve in such a meaningful way, and know this is important to our customers as well.”
To provide the best care for kids, children’s hospitals rely on donations and community support, as Medicaid and insurance programs do not fully cover the cost of care. Since 1983, CMN Hospitals have helped fill funding gaps by raising more than $7 billion. Its various fundraising partners and programs support the nonprofit’s mission to save and improve the lives of as many children as possible.
