ANN ARBOR, Michigan, Oct. 18, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Starting today, customers who order from Domino’s stores nationwide can add something special to their order: a donation to the children of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital®. Domino’s Pizza Inc. (NYSE: DPZ), the world’s largest pizza company, is participating in the annual St. Jude Thanks and Giving® fundraising campaign through January 2, 2022.

Customers can donate while placing an order over the phone, in stores, or online from their local Domino’s store. In addition to adding a whole dollar donation, customers can choose to round up the total of their order to donate the change to St. Jude. Thanks to generous donors, families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food – because all a family has to worry about is helping their child support themselves.
“What makes the St. Jude Thanks and Giving campaign so compelling is when you consider how donations from a single dollar — or a few cents — add up to millions of dollars to support children with cancer and other catastrophic diseases,” says Ritch Allison , Domino’s DIRECTOR. “It’s a testament to the big difference people can make when they come together for a good cause. Our corporate and franchise team members across the country look forward to working with customers to support families in St. Jude.”
Last year, Domino’s announced its commitment to raise $100 million over 10 years for St. Jude. In honor of its historic promise, St. Jude will name its newest residential facility The Domino’s Village. The Domino’s Village will be a home away from home for patient families, offering a peaceful respite with living, dining and play areas for patient family residents to enjoy.
In 2020, Domino’s raised more than $13 million for its cause through the St. Jude Thanks and Giving campaign and year-round donations.
St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is a leader in how the world understands, treats and defeats childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases. Discoveries made in St. Jude are shared, so every child saved in St. Jude means doctors and scientists can use that knowledge to save thousands more children around the world. In addition to housing and food, St. Jude provides an on-site school and many other services for patients and their families.
