TCC recently wrapped up our five-year partnership with Riley Hospital for Children in Indianapolis, IN with a one-million-dollar donation to the Riley Children’s Foundation. A portion of this donation went to the creation of the TCC Rainforest Activity Center, an area solely dedicated to therapeutic play for patients and their families. This room is filled with art supplies, high-tech games and gear, like motion sensing floor projectors, touch screen computers, interactive wall touch screens, tablets, and a multimedia projector. Other portions were used to fund ongoing research.
The partnership kicked off on August 25, 2015 with the Rally for Riley event where TCC and Riley Hospital employees formed a human chain around the hospital. This chain symbolized a hug for the 300,000 patients who visit Riley Hospital for Children each year.
Throughout this time, all TCC stores nationwide carried Cloths for Cures, screen cleaning cloths with art designed by nine different children with ties to Riley Hospital. 100% of the proceeds of these cloths went toward the Riley Children’s Foundation.

After we concluded our partnership with Riley, a new idea for cloths was born. Introducing Cloths for Good, a new line of microfiber screen cleaning cloths that our stores will carry. We asked the family members of our very own TCC employees to create a drawing of what it means to do good.
Our stores will now carry four new cloths with this artwork! 100% of the proceeds will directly help your community by funding events like our Backpack Giveaway. One cloth bought means one backpack with school supplies donated to a child. Pick up a Cloth for Good today at your local TCC Verizon store!
