According to Plano Ace Hardware owner Mansoor “Max” Ali,
“Through Ace Hardware, I’m supporting the resources I want to ensure are available for my children and every child in our community. My family is Ismaili Muslim, and in our faith, we prioritize unity and goodwill. It’s important for us to help others live a better quality of life. I’m very fortunate to have kids who are healthy, but if they ever get sick or injured, I know Children’s Health will be ready for whatever they need.
“Ace Hardware has been the perfect fit for me. It’s motivating and gratifying to know that every donation our store collects goes directly to Children’s Health, supporting the Children’s Miracle Network Hospital where we live. I can’t think of a better cause.
“What I enjoy about campaigns like North Texas Giving Day, is that they’re a celebration of giving to others as much as they’re about raising money. Every dollar we raise represents a community member who is stepping up to help the kids who need it at Children’s Health. The patients at Children’s Health are always on our mind during these campaigns. We constantly reflect on who we’re raising money for and why those gifts matter.
“I love that right when an Ace Hardware customer walks through our doors, they know we’re raising money for kids!
“Ace Hardware is teaming up with Children’s Health to double every unrestricted gift made online for North Texas Giving Day from Sept. 1-22, up to $150,000. These contributions help Children’s Health respond to the greatest needs of children and families across North Texas and beyond.
“If you make an online donation starting on Thursday, September 1, Ace Hardware will match your gift dollar for dollar to go twice as far. That means you can do double the good when you support Children’s Health during North Texas Giving Day.”
