The Power of Partnership
St. Jude Children's Research Hospital® was founded based on a lifesaving mission: Finding cures. Saving children.® But, we can't do it alone. Because of the dedicated support of partners like Dollar General, St. Jude is able to lead the way the world understands, treats and defeats childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases. Finding a cure is no easy feat. But the chances of a world where no child dies from cancer are higher because of you.
Dollar General Shines During the St. Jude Thanks and Giving® Campaign
As a valued St. Jude partner, you opened your stores and invited Dollar General shoppers to contribute add-on donations at checkout to help fund our cutting-edge research and lifesaving treatments at St. Jude. Dollar General received the St. Jude Thanks and Giving Campaign Partner of the Year at the June Volunteer Awards Dinner.
You've cultivated a spirit of giving within your organization and it's that quality that cements our partnership and will continue to help ensure no family receives a bill from St. Jude for anything.
Serving Others at St. Jude
Dollar General truly lives up to its mission of Serving Others. We are touched by your outpouring of compassion and kindness throughout the year for St. Jude patients and their families.
The Region 49 Dollar General team supported St. Jude this year by collecting more than 1,500 coloring books to support back to school time, as well as donating more than 1,000 bags of candy.
Dollar General also collected more than 1,000 toys to give away to St. Jude patients and their families at your Santa’s Workshop event on December 17. Even Mrs. Clause joined the fun as she passed out gingerbread treats and helped decorate cookies. Each child left with more than five toys thanks to your generosity.
Doing More for the Kids of St. Jude
Dollar General stepped up in many other ways to support St. Jude in 2019. We are grateful for your participation in the Nashville St. Jude Walk/Run as the $25,000 Registration Sponsor. That’s not all, your Employee Giving efforts demonstrated your culture of giving back with a total of $86,328 donated through your payroll deduction program.
Also, the Region 88 Dollar General team hosted a cookout event at Target House in October. In addition to good food and lots of fun, they provided over 500 toys and creative activities for St. Jude patients and families. This fun-filled event allowed St. Jude kids to play carnival games for toys and prizes, returning a piece of childhood fun to those battling cancer and other life-threatening diseases
Thankful for All You Do
Because of you, St. Jude is able to save kids regardless of their financial situation.

Thank you, Dollar General, for your gifts of giving, and for being a beacon of hope for St. Jude children and their families.
