James Graham Brown Cancer Center Receives Gift from Zappos
The James Graham Brown Cancer Center has received a gift of $10,664.40 from Zappos Fulfillment Centers, Inc. The money will go to the M. Krista Loyd Resource Center, supporting direct patient care needs including grocery cards and gas cards, as well as to support art therapy, free massage therapy for patients and their caregivers, and an image lab that houses a wide variety of hats, wigs, scarves and cosmetics for the cancer patients to use.

Zappos is an internet retailer that employs 3,600 and has a fulfillment center in Shepherdsville, KY.
The company has a reputation for excellent customer service and is also a generous community partner, donating their vending machine proceeds monthly to local charities chosen by their team members. In a company-wide survey, Zappos employees voted overwhelmingly in favor of the James Graham Brown Cancer Center as a charity of choice.
“It would be hard to find someone who is not affected by cancer in some way,” said Stefanie Walls, a Zappos representative who helped present the check. “Everyone has a friend or family member or co-worker who has been impacted by cancer and we feel it is important to support that work.”
