Theisen’s and Customers Donate Over $40,000 to Alzheimer’s Association
Dubuque, IA, Sept 12, 2015 - Theisen’s (pronounced Ty-sens) Home Farm Auto, a family-owned, leading Midwest retailer, today with the help of their customers, donated $40,486 to the Alzheimer’s Association during the Opening Ceremonies of the Dubuque Walk to End Alzheimer’s event.
The donation was propelled through a month-long program of selling $1 Forget Me Nots in Theisen’s 22 stores, fundraisers in the corporate office and an additional $5000 from Theisen’s Home Farm Auto directly.
Jim Theisen, owner and President of Theisen’s Home Farm Auto, commented, “Theisen’s makes it a priority to be involved in many not-for-profit organizations. With our family being personally impacted by Alzheimer’s, it is even more extraordinary for us to see our customers generously support the Alzheimer’s Association. This campaign allows us to promote awareness, raise funds and create an environment of caring in our stores. It is a WIN-WIN for everyone! We proudly support the Alzheimer’s Association and encourage others to do so as well.”
Over 25 family members and Theisen’s associates walked in the Dubuque walk. Funds raised from each store are distributed to their local Alzheimer’s Walk.
