DALLAS — Pollo Campero launches a new collectible cup featuring art created by St. Jude patients as a way to continue supporting the mission of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
“With our collectible cup campaign, we hope to raise money and awareness about the incredible work being done by our friends at St. Jude Children's Research Hospital,” said Pollo Campero Director of Marketing Federico Valiente. “As a restaurant founded on family serving families, we are proud to showcase the patients' art and support St. Jude's mission to provide medical care to children with cancer and other life-threatening diseases, regardless of their families' ability to pay.”
The cup is available at all Pollo Campero locations for $5 with $3 of each cup sale going toward St. Jude’s mission: Finding cures. Saving children.®
Guests can purchase the 32-ounce, plastic cups filled with their choice of beverage, including Campero's fresh-made daily Horchata and Mango drinks.
“Partnerships with brands like Pollo Campero and creative fundraising campaigns like this help make our ongoing mission possible,” said Steve Froehlich, chief revenue officer of ALSAC, the fundraising awareness organization for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.
Froehlich added: “The halls throughout St. Jude are filled with patient artwork, and sharing this creative collection is our way of bringing a little bit of St. Jude directly to our supporters. Generous support from Pollo Campero and its customers helps ensure St. Jude can continue leading the way the world understands, treats and defeats childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases.”
This year marks the third year of the Pollo Campero partnership with St. Jude's Children's Research Hospital in the United States. In 2019, St. Jude named Pollo Campero Emerging Partner of the Year. In Guatemala and El Salvador, Pollo Campero has supported the fight against childhood cancer since 2001, raising more than $32 million to date.
