Participating Ace Hardware Stores Host One-Day Bucket Promotion For Children’s Hospital At Erlanger

Monday, August 11, 2014

Eighteen regional Ace Hardware stores in Georgia and Tennessee will participate in one-day bucket promotion on Saturday to raise money and support T.C. Thompson Children’s Hospital at Erlanger. 

Customers who make a $5 donation at participating Ace Hardware stores on Saturday will receive a limited edition five-gallon bucket and 20% off* most everything that fits in the bucket. All donations will directly benefit children who receive medical care at Children’s Hospital at Erlanger, one of the 170 hospitals supported by Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals.

The bucket promotion is part of Ace Hardware’s Block Party Event, which takes place at participating Ace Hardware stores Friday through Sunday.

“There could not be a better time to partner with Ace Hardware than now,” said Rebecca Brinkley, Children’s Hospital Foundation and CMN Hospitals coordinator.  “As the summer days are coming to an end, people are beginning to focus on fall projects.  We hope the residents in our communities will take advantage of this sale to not only purchase items for those projects, but to also lend a helpful hand in supporting the children who need medical treatment every day at the region’s only children’s hospital.” 

"Ace Hardware has been a proud partner of Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals since 1991. Thanks to the generosity of Ace customers, retailers, vendors and team members, together Ace has raised more than $59 million for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals across the country," officials stated.

“Ace is committed to being the Helpful Place in each community we serve, and part of that means giving back,” said Jimmy Alexander, president, Ace Hardware Foundation. “We’re proud to help make miracles happen for children in need and to provide support for the entire family.”

“Our friends at Ace Foundation have been a committed and valued partner in our vision to save the lives of as many children as possible,” said John Lauck, president and CEO of Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. “The funds raised through this bucket promotion will go directly to pay for life-saving medical treatment for sick and injured kids across the country.”
