For most people, fall is a time for long sleeves and raking leaves, but at Cat Country it's penny season! Last year we raised over 1 MILLION Pennies for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital! Join us on our first stop of our Quest for One Million Pennies and help the patients of St. Jude! You can drop off your pennies at ShopRite of Somers Point on Friday, September 22nd any time between 8am and 6pm!
Because of your donations St. Jude is able to lead the way that the world understands, treats and defeats childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases. At St. Jude, no child is ever turned away due to their race, religion or ability to pay. This means, no family ever receives a bill from St. Jude whether that be for transportation, food, housing or their treatment.
When St. Jude opened in 1962, the overall childhood cancer survival rate was at just 20%. Today, it is at 80% because of your donations and support! However, if your child falls within that 20%, these rates are still unacceptable. Your continued support helps St. Jude in their fight so that no child dies from childhood cancer or another life-threatening disease.
