Since 1991, Ace Hardware has been a partner of UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospitals.
After Dilan went into cardiac arrest following a severe allergic reaction, the experts at UCSF Benioff Children's Hospital Oakland helped him recover. Ace Hardware supports the school program, where Dilan received personalized educational support during his rehabilitation.
Through a long-standing partnership, Bay Area Ace Hardware locations have raised over $1.3 million for our patients and families. In 2018, local Ace retailers raised a record-breaking number of funds by engaging in Round Up campaigns, Bucket Day promotions, chocolate sales, and more.
In recognition of Ace Hardware’s continued commitment to our hospitals, in November 2018 we announced the Ace Hardware Building Blocks of Literacy program. This program, housed at UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital Oakland, will bring the joy and power of reading to our patients and ensure that every child and sibling has books to read while in our hospital.
