Top 10 Retailer Fundraising
Markets for 2021
Congratulations to the Top 10 CMN Hospitals Retailer Fundraising Markets for 2021
We exist to help others…and that includes helping our own people, when they need it most. The Ace Helpful Fund is designed to provide short-term, emergency support to qualified Ace Hardwar corporate, RSC and field team members, as well as Ace store retail associates who experience financial hardship as a result of certain unforeseen and unpreventable circumstances and who cannot afford basic living expenses. These circumstances include natural disaster, death, serious or life-threatening illness or injury, catastrophic or extreme circumstances.
The Ace Helpful Fund also allows all Ace team members, friends and family the opportunity to participate in this effort by contributing to the fund in support of members of the Ace family who may experience such a hardship. Visit www.acehelpfulfund.org for more information, to apply for assistance or to make a tax-deductible donation.
