Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft Stores increased cash and product donations to non-profit organizations to more than $1.9 million in 2010. Additionally, Jo-Ann customers and Team Members showed great generosity, making personal contributions and supporting company-sponsored fundraisers, bringing 2010 total donations to more than $2 million.

“Part of our vision statement is to be the best fabric and craft retail brand for our communities,” noted Darrell Webb, chief executive officer. “We pledge to be loyal to that mission and are pleased to stand by our commitment to making a difference.”

Examples of 2010 giving include:

Other philanthropic programs also received monetary and merchandise donations from Jo-Ann including Ronald McDonald House Charities and Goodwill Industries International, Inc. “It’s great to be able to impact such worthwhile organizations,” said Webb.
