The Paper Store in Bristol helping Jimmy Fund

Now through Aug. 16, customers of The Paper Store will be invited to contribute $1, $3, or $5 to the Jimmy Fund’s “Strike Out Cancer” pin-up campaign.

In return for their contributions, customers receive a baseball pin-up on which they can write their name. The pin-ups will be displayed in stores to show customers how easy it is to make a difference in the fight against cancer. The Paper Store locations are scattered throughout New England and New Jersey including Bristol Commons, 99 Farmington Ave., Bristol.

“The Paper Store is honored to be involved in such a distinguished program with such an honorable organization,” said Vanessa Keefe, Director of Marketing, The Paper Store in a press release. “Nearly everyone can say they’ve been affected by cancer in some way. Participating in this program allows The Paper Store employees and customers to show their support in finding a cure.”

“We are so grateful for The Paper Store’s partnership and their dedication to helping us Strike Out Cancer,” said David Giagrando, assistant vice president, corporate partnerships, Dana-Farber and the Jimmy Fund in a press release. “Thanks to the generosity of The Paper Store’s customers, we are working to further adult and pediatric patient care and cancer research at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute.”
