Date:2/17/2010

ANN ARBOR, Mich., Feb. 17 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Domino's Pizza ( DPZ), the recognized world leader in pizza delivery, raised $2 million for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital® during the 2009 Thanks and Giving® campaign. This marks the largest single charitable donation in the history of Domino's Pizza.  

"Domino's Pizza stores across the country, along with our millions of customers, rallied to support this amazing cause and brought in double what was collected in 2008," said Patrick Doyle, President of Domino's Pizza. "I want to extend a heartfelt thanks to everyone—our customers, team members and franchisees—who contributed during the campaign. Together we were able to raise public awareness and much needed dollars to support the lifesaving work at St. Jude."

During the 2009 Thanks and Giving (Nov. 16-Dec. 31) campaign, Domino's stores nationwide participated by asking for a dollar or more to be added to customer's orders to help the kids of St. Jude.  With the combined support of Domino's customers, stores, franchisees and the company contribution, $2 million was raised for St. Jude.

"We know it's been a tough year, but cancer can't wait for the economy to get better. That's why St. Jude is so thankful we can count on Domino's and its customers to support the lifesaving work of St. Jude through the Thanks and Giving campaign," said Marlo Thomas, National Outreach Director, St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. "Since no child is ever turned away due to a family's inability to pay, support from partners like Domino's was needed this year more than ever. And they continue to be a blessing to the children who have turned to us for hope and a chance for a healthy future."

Below are some of the essential aspects of treatment for patients and their families that can be funded by the generous contributions made by consumers during Thanks and Giving:

  • Intravenous chemotherapy treatment ($712 per day)
  • Housing for a St. Jude family ($154 per night)
  • Physical therapy ($332 per hour)
  • Chest x-ray ($125 each)
  • Oxygen therapy ($402 per day)

"In just over five years, Domino's has raised $6.7 million to support the efforts of St. Jude," Doyle said. "It is an organization that we are incredibly proud to support."
