Throughout the year, Ace Hardware of Bethalto participated in Ace Bucket Day, yearlong round up, item of the month promotions, World Famous Chocolate candy sales, BBQs, popcorn sale etc. Ace Hardware of Bethalto would like to thank our customers and vendors on helping us to raise over $45,613. The total raised by Ace Hardware of Bethalto made it one of the top ten fundraising stores for Ace nationwide. Duracell Battery awarded Ray Johnson (General Manager of Ace Hardware of Bethalto) an additional $10,000 for being a top-ten single-store retailer. One hundred percent of funds remained local, benefitting CMN-STL member hospitals, St. Louis Children’s Hospital and SSM Health Cardinal Glennon.

“At Ace Hardware we’re committed to being the helpful place and part of that is our commitment to giving back to the community we serve. We are locally owned and locally giving back,” said Ray Johnson, Co-Owner of Ace Hardware in Bethalto, IL. “Ace Hardware employees and customers went above and beyond—raising more funds for programs and services insurance does not cover, vital equipment, and major hospital renovations —which helps create more miracles for sick children in our neighborhoods.”
