Home Furniture Continues to Give Hope to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital 

“Thank you to everyone who put thought, energy, and creativity into this campaign! And thanks to everyone who donated! Your efforts will be a blessing to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital! from Jill Mills, Accounting & Home Furniture Outreach Coordinator.  

When April rolls around Jill Mills and her fellow employees at Home Furniture Plus Bedding kick off their annual St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital fundraising campaign.  This year the employees really rocked the effort by making one of the largest donations in the events history.  Each of the 8 store’s employees gave a tremendous effort and encouraged their customers, friends and families from Beaumont, Texas to Baton Rouge, Louisiana to join them in giving hope to the children of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.  

These are just a few quick facts about the incredible work that St Jude does: 

  • Treatments invented at St. Jude have helped push the overall childhood cancer survival rate from 20% to more than 80% since it opened in 1962 
  • St. Jude shares the breakthroughs it makes 
  • Every child saved at St. Jude means doctors and scientists worldwide can use the knowledge to save thousands more children 
  • Families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing, or food  
  • St. Jude is leading the way the world understands, treats, and defeats childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases 
  • St Jude creates more clinical trials for cancer than any other children’s hospital and turns laboratory discoveries into lifesaving treatments that benefit patients 

Over the last 6 years, a total of $172,570.28 has been donated to St. Jude Children’s Hospital from customers, employees and company matches as part of Home Furniture’s annual fundraising campaign. On June 26, 2022, Madelyn Murphy, Development Specialist at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, and a team from Home Furniture Plus Bedding participated in a virtual check presentation. The 2022 total donated was $40,007.16.

Employees of Home Furniture Plus Bedding have once again committed to supporting the incredible work performed at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
