CHEP Makes Major Donation to Seattle Children’s Hospital’s Purchase a Miracle Campaign

CHEP, the world’s leading pallet and container pooling company, in coordination with its corporate parent Brambles, has donated $10,000 to Seattle Children’s Hospital to help fund the Purchase a Miracle campaign. For more than 20 years, the Purchase a Miracle campaign has been committed to raising funds for uncompensated care at Children’s, helping to ensure that all children in the region get the care they need, regardless of a family’s ability to pay.

“The Brambles Community Reach program seeks opportunities to give back to the people we serve. Where better to devote our resources than to organizations like Children’s, which help the youngest and most at-risk of our society.”

CHEP joins more than 50 retailers, distributors and manufacturers operating throughout the Northwest, including Cost Cutter, Food Pavilion, Fred Meyer, Haggen, QFC, Safeway and Unified Grocers, in sponsoring Purchase a Miracle. One of the campaign’s primary outreach activities is the Science Adventure Lab, which brings interactive science experiments to students in a custom-built 45-foot long mobile laboratory.

Amanda L. Jones, Ph.D., Director, Health and Science Education Outreach, Seattle Children’s Research Institute, said; “Children’s strives to prevent, treat and eliminate pediatric disease, and it is through the generosity of CHEP and programs like Purchase a Miracle that we can continue to provide a healthier future for our region’s children and also help to inspire the next generation of nurses, doctors and scientist through innovative programs like the Science Adventure Lab”

The funding, which comes from the Brambles Community Reach program, marks the third consecutive year that CHEP has been a Platinum Sponsor of the Purchase a Miracle campaign.

Jim Ritchie, President of CHEP Americas, said; “The Brambles Community Reach program seeks opportunities to give back to the people we serve. Where better to devote our resources than to organizations like Children’s, which help the youngest and most at-risk of our society.”
