St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital has received the largest donation in its history from Domino’s Pizza. The chain has committed to giving $100-million to them over the next 10 years.
In honor of the impressive gift, St. Jude will be naming its new housing facility The Domino’s Village. It’s going to be on the hospital’s campus in Memphis, Tennessee, and will feature 140 fully furnished apartments for families to stay in while their kids are patients there.
"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," explains Richard Shadyac ,president and CEO of ALSAC, the fundraising part of St. Jude. "They will forever be transformed by the generosity of Domino's in their greatest time of need.”
