HSN Cares And Alliance Data Partner To Donate $500,000 To Local Charities During The Season Of Giving

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla., Dec. 11, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- HSN Cares, the philanthropic arm of HSN, and leading credit card provider Alliance Data, announced today a donation of $500,000 to a variety of local charities that support women and children. At a press conference hosted at the HSN headquarters in St. Petersburg, FL, HSNi CEO Mindy Grossman and Deb Decker, Senior Vice President and Chief Client Officer for Alliance Data, unveiled the charities' plans for the donation. $400,000 of the funds will benefit the Tampa Bay community and the remaining $100,000 will benefit the communities surrounding HSN's fulfillment centers in Piney Flats, Tennessee; Fontana, California; and Roanoke, Virginia.

Alliance Data has provided credit card services for HSN since 2008. Proud to align with HSN to support its HSN Cares Foundation, Alliance Data is committed to supporting the communities in which their associates live and work.

"At HSNi, we strive to cultivate a culture of generosity.  Our people are not only creative and passionate about what they do, but also about giving back and we are honored to be partnering with Alliance Data to make a difference this holiday season," said Mindy Grossman, HSNi CEO.  "Our initiatives are proudly supported year-round. We offer each employee two fully compensated days of community service. Last year, our employees volunteered over 27,500 hours. We want people to not just give to charities – we want them to feel connected through our HSN Cares philanthropic program."

Tampa Bay organizations, Thurgood Marshall Fundamental Middle School, Community Action Stops Abuse (CASA), Habitat for Humanity of Pinellas County, and Big Brothers Big Sisters of Pinellas County, each received $100,000 to support their programs. 

"The mission of HSN Cares aligns with that of Alliance Data as we both recognize the obligation we have to 'do good' by helping others in need," said Deb Decker, Senior Vice President and Chief Client Officer for Retail Services at Alliance Data. "We are confident that the program will truly benefit those in need and reach organizations that will make long-lasting changes and improvements within the community."

Thurgood Marshall Fundamental Middle School will use the donation to fund a state-of-the-art technology lab for their students. HSN has been a corporate partner with Thurgood Marshall for eight years and sends volunteers on a monthly basis to help with various needs around the school. More than 30 HSN employees currently serve as mentors to students. 

CASA, Community Action Stops Abuse , will use the money to sponsor a room in CASA's new emergency domestic violence shelter.  CASA has been a leading advocate for ending domestic violence.  Their support of victims of abuse and efforts to educate and prevent domestic violence has been widely recognized. HSN is honored to be the first company to make a significant contribution to CASA's Sunshine and Hope Capital Campaign.

HSN Cares has built three homes as part of its ongoing partnership with Habitat for Humanity of Pinellas County.  The donation will sponsor the Habitat for Humanity Blitz Build for the next decade. In addition to today's contribution, HSN Cares has donated $200,000 over the past three years and more than 1500 employee community service hours to build three homes through Habitat.

Big Brothers Big Sisters will use the donation to fund a scholarship endowment for future Little Brothers and Sisters. Through the organization's school-based mentoring program, more than 30 HSN employees are matched with middle school "Littles" to serve as mentors through high school. HSN also provides in-kind human resources support to Big Brothers Big Sisters.
