CHILLICOTHE, Ohio, March 17, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — OhioPetland stores, with franchises nationwide, today announced that they have raised more than $114,000 at the 2021 St. Jude Halloween Pin-Up Promotion to benefit St. Jude® Children’s Research Hospital. As a partner of St. Jude for 13 years, Petland has long celebrated how St. Jude leads the world in understanding, treating and overcoming childhood cancer and other life-threatening illnesses.

“St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is close to our hearts,” Petland’s vice president of public and legislative affairs said. Elisabeth Kunzelman. “Our Petland family across the country understands the difference a dollar can do and always goes above and beyond to make the campaign a success.”

Petland first officially partnered with St. Jude in 2009 and has since raised more than $1.1 million for St. Jude by asking customers to donate $1 or more at checkout through October to support St. Jude’s life-saving mission: finding cures. Save children.® To acknowledge the donation, customers sign a St. Jude Halloween-themed pin-up that is displayed in the store. Petland also launched a corporate campaign for the home office, offering payroll deductions for donations.

Several franchisees and store operators visited the St. Jude campus in Memphis as well as the St. Jude Target House, one of several housing facilities designed to provide families of St. Jude patients with a home.

Generous donors who participate in fundraisers like St. Jude’s Halloween promotion help ensure that families are never billed by St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing, or food, so they can focus on their child’s life.
