Domino’s Pizza donated $110 million to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, making it the largest donation the hospital has seen in its history.
Domino’s and its franchisees have pledged to raise the money over the next ten years.
The money will go towards 140 apartments St. Jude is developing on its Memphis campus for families of children who are receiving treatment, and the facility will be called “The Domino’s Village” to honor the company’s gift, WATE reported.
“The Domino’s Village will provide a home-away-from-home for the thousands of kids and families who come to St. Jude from around the world,” said Richard Shadyac, president and CEO of ALSAC, the fundraising arm of St. Jude. “They will forever be transformed by the generosity of Domino’s in their greatest time of need.”
St. Jude provides free housing to families who must travel 35 miles or more for their children to receive treatment.
