Marion-based TCC has donated $1 million to the Riley Children’s Foundation. The wireless retailer has also announced a five-year partnership with the foundation to help patients of Riley Hospital for Children at Indiana University Health.
The Verizon Premium Wireless Retailer is donating supplies and equipment for a new hi-tech patient art therapy room. The new TCC Rain Forest art and activity room will be dedicated to art projects and games for patients on the 7th floor of Riley Hospital.
“As part of our continued efforts to give back and make a difference in the lives of children across the country, there was no doubt in our minds that we wanted to get involved with Riley Hospital. Simply writing a check isn’t what we’re about at TCC. Instead, we developed a plan to give back to Riley Hospital in a way no one has before. It’s a privilege to help brighten the days for the children of Riley Hospital, and I couldn’t be more proud,” TCC CEO Scott Moorehead said.
Meanwhile, 350 TCC stores are selling screen cleaning cloths that feature patient artwork. The proceeds will support Riley Hospital.
“It is rare for a hospital to have an opportunity with national reach like this, and we’re honored that TCC is leveraging its assets to make a difference for the children of Riley Hospital,” said Jim Austin, chief marketing and corporate partnerships officer for Riley Children’s Foundation.
