COAST CITIES —The Seany Foundation recently received more than $800 from Jimbo’s …Naturally! stores through its recycling program called “It’s in the Bag.” Every time shoppers brought in their own reusable bag, Jimbo’s gave them a wooden nickel they could drop in a charity’s donation box.
The Seany Foundation is a nonprofit located in La Jolla working to raise money for pediatric cancer research, as well as undertake patient care project for children currently fighting cancer.
Jimbo’s sent the foundation a check for $828.30, which represents 16,566 wooden nickels (or 16,566 recycled bags). All donations made to The Seany Foundation go directly into completing current patient care projects and funding pediatric cancer research at Rady Children’s Hospital San Diego and Moores UCSD Cancer Center.
The Seany Foundation is a nonprofit organization founded to carry on Sean Lewis Robins’ legacy of battling Ewing’s sarcoma and to help find a cure for pediatric cancer. The foundation works to ensure that research programs devoted to rare childhood cancers get funding.
Childhood cancer affects one in 330 children before they turn 20 years old. Cancer is the leading cause of death in children, and it is a random killer with no known cause. The goal at The Seany Foundation is to fund cutting-edge research for childhood cancers and to help improve the quality of life for teens and children as they struggle through their own cancer journeys.
