$1.4 million for Nationwide

Nationwide Children's Hospital

Thursday morning, tween clothing retailer, Justice presented Nationwide Children’s Hospital officials with a check totaling $1,472,837. The amount represented the total dollars raised during Justice’s national holiday campaign that benefited The Research Institute at Nationwide Children’s. It was the first time in the more than three-year corporate partnership between Nationwide Children’s and Justice that the ascena retailer launched a holiday campaign that singularly benefitted Nationwide Children’s.

“On behalf of the patients, families and staff, I thank Justice and their customers for their growing commitment to Nationwide Children’s Hospital during the past 3 years,” said Steve Allen, MD, Chief Executive Officer at Nationwide Children’s. “Justice’s generosity will ensure Nationwide Children’s continues to help children across the globe through the discovery of cures and treatments that will lead to unparalleled clinical care.”

From Nov. 1-Jan. 7, Justice invited customers to donate at the point of purchase at more than the 950 store locations in the United States and Canada.

Additionally, when it can be an especially challenging time to be in the hospital, nearly 3,000 generous and compassionate Justice customers and community members provided special holiday wishes on Justice-designed e-cards and snowflake cards for patients who spent the season at Nationwide Children’s.

“We are pleased with the success of this campaign and its ability to drive a significant financial outcome that supports the tremendous services Nationwide Children’s provides,” said Justice President Lece Lohr. “It’s a testament to the passion our customers and associates have for a cause that directly benefits the health and well-being of children.”

In the more than three years since partnering with Nationwide Children’s, Justice has raised over $3 million for the hospital.
