raise funds for childhood cancer

MEMPHIS, Tenn., Oct. 18 /PRNewswire/ -- For nearly 50 years St. Jude Children's Research Hospital has been dedicated to finding cures and saving children with pediatric cancer and other catastrophic childhood diseases. Throughout the week of October 28th, consumers can help contribute to this worthy cause by purchasing some of their favorite Procter and Gamble (P&G) (NYSE: PG) brands at all local Target stores. Target plans to donate $700,000 to St. Jude. Some of the participating brands include Tide, Pampers, and Pantene.

Target has been a partner of St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, the world's premier center for the research and treatment of childhood catastrophic illnesses, since 1999 when it opened Target House, an innovative approach to free, long-term housing for families whose children are receiving life-saving treatment at St. Jude.

"St. Jude is very grateful to Procter & Gamble, Target and their consumers for their continued support," said John P. Moses, chief executive officer, ALSAC, the fundraising organization of St. Jude. "Because of compassionate donors, St. Jude is able to provide unsurpassed patient care and unparalleled scientific research and to freely share our research and discoveries with hospitals and medical centers around the world. But most importantly, we can ensure that no child is ever turned away because of a family's inability to pay."
