  • As the charity that received the most votes, St. Jude will use the funds from Target to support the hospital's groundbreaking research and lifesaving care, including The St. Jude School Program Presented by Target.  Patients that are enrolled in the accredited, special purpose school – which has six teachers and provides instruction for patients in grades K-12 – attend class regularly and have homework.  Books and assignments from the home community are emphasized, to keep patients in step with their local school.  The school also provides re-entry support to ease the transition back into the community school when patients leave St. Jude.

    "We are so thankful for our loyal online supporters who demonstrated their commitment to education and the kids of St. Jude Children's Research Hospital by participating in the Super Love Sender campaign," said Richard C.
