Tuff Shed Combines Resources to Fight Childhood Cancer

0 Comments | Dec 05, 2017 |  Newsworthy

Tuff Shed, Inc., America’s leading supplier of storage buildings and garages, has launched a year-end fundraising incentive to help fight childhood cancer. Visitors to www.tuffshed.com can take part in this program by configuring and saving a building quote. For every saved online quote on their website for factory-direct products during the month of December, Tuff Shed will donate $2.50 to Cookies for Kids’ Cancer.

The online fund raising effort is part of a larger program supporting Cookies for Kids’ Cancer.  In September, Denver-based Community First Commercial Real Estate made a large donation to the charity on behalf of their Tuff Shed client.

Tuff Shed’s overall goal for the 2017 fund raising effort is $15,000. To see progress against this goal, or to make a donation, look for the Tuff Shed fund raising page http://www.cookiesforkidscancer.org/fundraiser/tuffshed. In the spring of 2018, Tuff Shed will further the effort by designing and installing a building to be used as a playhouse in the children’s outdoor playground area at the University of Minnesota Masonic Children’s Hospital.

“We’re proud to be able to help fight childhood cancer and support the Cookies for Kids’ Cancer organization,” says Phil Worth, V.P. Marketing for Tuff Shed. “The support of our customers and partners like Community First Commercial Real Estate make it possible for our small program to gather momentum and make a bigger difference.”

TUFF SHED products include wooden backyard storage sheds, larger commercial storage buildings, garages and cabin shells. A network of 48 Tuff Shed manufacturing facilities service customers across 36 states. Assortments of Tuff Shed storage buildings, garages and recreational buildings are displayed at 126 Tuff Shed factory-direct locations and at nearly 1,400 Home Depot stores.
