"Alzheimer's is a disease that painfully affects millions of people, not only those who suffer from the disease, but their families and caregivers as well. I am so pleased that TJX's support of the Alzheimer's Association will continue as the Association strives to fulfill its vision of a world without Alzheimer's. It has been four years since we announced our global partnership with the Alzheimer's Association and during that time, so many of our Associates have taken the time to share their personal stories with me. We are optimistic that other companies will join us in our support of this important cause and that fewer people will suffer from the impact of this terminal disease."
Carol Meyrowitz, Chief Executive Officer, The TJX Companies, Inc.

In February 2013, TJX - the parent company of TJ Maxx, Marshalls, HomeGoods, and Sierra Trading Post in the U.S. - continued its support of the Alzheimer's Association by making a second, multi-year pledge of $1 million in recognition of the massive impact of Alzheimer's disease worldwide. As part of the pledge, TJX also became a Presenting Sponsor of the Promise Garden, which serves as the emotional centerpiece of the Walk to End Alzheimer's events around the country, and a Champion of the Alzheimer's Early Detection Alliance, helping to foster awareness about the disease and spread recognition of the early warning signs.

On a more local level, TJX Associate's across the Desert Southwest Chapter rallied to the cause, raising additional dollars at this year's Walk to End Alzheimer's!

On behalf of our Association, and the more than 5 million Americans living with Alzheimer's disease, we want to thank TJX for their continued support.
