What is Apps for Kids?
Assurance Financial believes in giving back. It’s our pleasure to be a corporate partner with St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital®. Join us in our campaign “Apps for Kids”.
Each year in September, Assurance Financial donates $50 to St. Jude per completed application.* In September of 2020, we raised over $59,000 through the Apps for Kids giving campaign.
St. Jude is leading the way the world understands, treats and defeats childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases. St. Jude families never receive a bill for treatment, travel, housing, or food. That means every donation is critical to help families in need.
History with St. Jude
Our decision to become a corporate partner with St. Jude was based on one simple truth – all a family should worry about is helping their child live when they receive devastating news. Since 2018, Assurance Financial has participated in several community events and fundraisers, including the annual St. Jude Walk/Run. We’ve sponsored 9 St. Jude Dream Home® Giveaways and have 206 employees who regularly give directly from their paychecks.
St. Jude’s goal is 100% survival. Our goal is to help them reach that. Through our numerous fundraising efforts, like Apps for Kids, casual dress giving incentive, and Walk/Run participation, we hope to grow our relationship with St. Jude. We’re excited at the possibility of surpassing our donation amounts each year, and connecting our employees and clients to support this worthy cause.
Kathy Abbot is the winner of the $10,000 VISA gift card donated by Assurance Financial, one of the many prizes of this year’s St. Jude Dream Home Giveaway in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. She has purchased tickets for the giveaway for nearly 25 years because she knows firsthand what St. Jude patients and their families experience after her niece was diagnosed with cancer at just a year old. Fortunately, her niece is now a healthy 25-year-old art teacher. Kathy remembers the stress her brother’s family experienced while caring for their child and hopes that other families in a similar predicament can experience the same outcome through donor contributions to St. Jude.
