BY THE NUMBERS
At Ace, we pride ourselves on being the helpful place. And what better way to help than to give back to our local communities and those in need? The Ace Foundation has raised over $64 million since 1991 to help sick and injured kids through our partnership with Children’s Miracle Network (CMN) Hospitals. We also support the American Red Cross Natural Disaster Relief Fund through volunteer hours and donations of products needed when a disaster strikes.
Meet Roxie, our 2017 Ace All-Star
Earlier this week, Roxie Schopp was crowned the 2017 Ace Cares for Kids All-Star.
Roxie is a Miracle Kid and patient of St. Louis Children’s Hospital and SSM Health Cardinal Glennon Children’s Hospital. Roxie was diagnosed with stage IV high risk neuroblastoma, an aggressive form of pediatric cancer.
According to a press release from Ace Hardware, “Roxie was selected by the Ace Foundation following a nationwide campaign that gave every Children’s Miracle Network Hospital an opportunity to nominate a deserving patient. As the fifth-annual All-Star for the Ace Cares for Kids Program, a $10,000 donation from Duracell will be made to CMN Hospitals of Greater St. Louis in Roxie’s honor.”
A local TV station was at Roxie’s elementary school when Ace surprised her with the news. Check out the video below!
