Our CHaD Champions are companies that use their influence to find creative ways to involve their staff, their vendors, and their customers in support of CHaD. They provide support that is not tied to specific CHaD fundraising events, but relies on the initiative of the company. CHaD Champions not only contribute financially, but also broaden the base of CHaD supporters significantly.
Contact the CHaD Community Relations Office for more information on how you can join this elite group of businesses.
C&S Charities Inc. is a non-profit organization that was established in 2010 as the coordinating entity of C&S Wholesale Grocers' annual charity golf tournament, "Tee Up for Kids." Held each year in August, this golf event has raised millions of dollars for pre-selected high-impact organizations including CHaD. Over time their support has made an incredible positive impact in the areas of childhood cancer and childhood hunger.
A little sip can make a big difference, and Cumberland Farms is doing just that. The Cumberland Farms Cups for Kids Campaign raises money for CHaD each year through the sale of iced coffee in their retail locations.

Local Dunkin' Donuts franchisees are committed to serving their communities by supporting local children's hospitals. Money collected on Iced Coffee Day, held each year in May goes to improve the health and well-being of children and families in the area. CHaD is grateful to be a designated charity, with donated funds supporting our Child Life program.
Irving Fuel the Care
Irving Oil raises funds at their service stations across the Northeast to support their "Fuel the Care" program. This program provides much-needed fuel vouchers families at CHaD and other children's hospitals, who need to drive long distances to receive medical care for their children. These vouchers help ease some of the financial stress so families can focus on their child's health care needs. Learn more about this important support program for our families.

The Kohl's Safe at Home program, part of CHaD's Injury Prevention Center, provides important information and devices to help keep kids safe. In addition, Kohl's volunteers are frequent participants in CHaD events.
