Areas USA Raises More Than $100,000 for St. Jude Through the Thanks and Giving Holiday Campaign

Areas USA began a partnership with St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital that was successfully launched this past holiday season through the Thanks and Giving Campaign.  Because of the team’s dedication and our guests’ generosity, the company was able to raise $104,906.52 in our first annual POS add-on campaign.

Areas believes that social responsibility has a positive impact on development, business, and society. Developing relationships with your local community is an important step to creating that impact.  Areas is proud to take it to the next level and engage in a company wide effort.  St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is internationally recognized for its pioneering research and treatment of children with cancer and other catastrophic diseases.

The mission of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is to advance cures, and means of prevention, for pediatric catastrophic diseases through research and treatment.  No child is denied treatment based on race, religion or a family’s ability to pay.

“We feel gratified to partner with St. Jude whose impact is far reaching,” said Xavier Rabell, CEO of Areas USA, Inc.  “This opportunity to invest in the future through the improvement of the health of children affected by cancer is one of the most important examples of our devotion to respecting the communities in which we operate.”
