VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. – Virginia Beach-based marketing firm Reed & Associates Marketing, Inc. (R&A) took to the streets of the Virginia Zoo on Saturday, Nov. 17 to walk in support of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital®. This is the third year R&A has participated in the St. Jude Give thanks. Walk™ and this year, the company was the third largest contributor in the Hampton Roads market.
R&A is the agency of record for Window World, Inc.® and has been partnering with the national replacement company since 2008 to support St. Jude. This year, R&A teamed up with Window World on a national level to participate in the Walk. Overall, Team Window World raised more than $35,000 for St. Jude that will be added to the more than $2.5 million the company has already donated to the hospital since 2008. All of the dollars raised will be used to research and treat childhood cancer at St. Jude.
“Last year, we were fortunate enough to spend the holidays with the children at the hospital and saw the life-saving work that happens at St. Jude,” said Ashley Knepper, Vice President of Marketing for R&A. “Despite what we may think about hospitals, St. Jude is filled with hope due to the countless stories of survival and medical advancements. We cherish being a part of the St. Jude family and contributing to such a meaningful cause as saving the lives of children.”
R&A will round out the holiday season by supporting a local Hampton Roads non-profit organization. In past years, the company has helped military families through Operation Homefront and has donated toys and supplies to Norfolk YMCA.
