From the Alzheimer's Association Blog:

For the second consecutive year, Marshalls stores nationwide are getting involved in the fight to end Alzheimer's. Shoppers who visit a Marshalls store between March 2-15*, can donate to the Alzheimer's Association® at checkout; in doing so, they will help support our vision of a world without Alzheimer's disease.

Since 2011, The TJX Companies, Inc. — the parent company of Marshalls, TJ Maxx, HomeGoods and Sierra Trading Post in the U.S. — has been active in the fight to end Alzheimer's. In 2013, the organization made 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 Walk to End Alzheimer's® Promise Garden, which serves as the emotional centerpiece of the Alzheimer's Association Walks around the country.

Thank you Marshalls and The TJX Companies, Inc.!

* From March 2 to March 15, 2014, 100% of donations made at checkout will go to the Alzheimer's Association.
