Working together to make a difference for kids
Melting Pot restaurants is proud to celebrate our 20th anniversary with our friends at St. Jude Children's Research Hospital® . We take our Mission, Vision and Principles seriously and that’s why Melting Pot enthusiastically supports the patients and families at St. Jude in the fight against childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases.
One of the ways that Melting Pot supports St. Jude is through the annual St. Jude Thanks and Giving® campaign. From mid-October to the end of December each year, guests have an opportunity to donate to the kids of St. Jude when they dine at any of the Melting Pot Restaurants nationwide. Guests can now choose to donate $20 to receive a Donate & Dine card valid for $40 off a future purchase of $100 or more, or donate $10 to receive a Donate & Dine card valid for $20 off a future purchase of $50 or more at Melting Pot.
Melting Pot also offers support for St. Jude year-round through various initiatives such as the sale of signature chocolate fondue wafers (for each box purchased, $1 is given to the hospital).
Helping others never tasted so sweet
"Through these collaborative efforts among all of our restaurants, each of our guests has an opportunity to make a significant impact in helping St. Jude children fight cancer and other life-threatening diseases," said Bob Johnston, CEO of Front Burner Brands, the restaurant management company for Melting Pot. "Our family of restaurants and team members is very excited to know that their dedication and hard work touches the lives of so many children."
Each year, Melting Pot sends top-fundraising team members from across the nation for the previous year’s St. Jude Thanks and Giving® campaign to Memphis to tour the campus to celebrate their continued partnership and support, and learn more about the important life-saving work that is taking place at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
In addition to annual trip, the Chocolate Wafer Program, and the St. Jude Thanks and Giving®, Melting Pot also annually participates in the St. Jude Walk/Run.
About St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital
For more than 60 years, St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital has been leading the way the world understands, treats and defeats childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases.
As a global leader and the first comprehensive cancer center dedicated solely to children, St. Jude has enhanced care for children with cancer all over the world. Doctors and scientists at St. Jude have developed treatments that have increased overall survival rates for childhood cancers from less than 20% to more than 80%. All scientific breakthroughs from St. Jude are freely shared, and every child saved at St. Jude means that doctors and researchers around the world are able to use that knowledge to save even more children. St. Jude won’t stop until no child dies from cancer.
St. Jude is one of the largest charity organizations in the country. With the help of generous supporters like you, St. Jude raises close to $2 billion annually, which accounts for about 80% of the hospital’s expenses. At St. Jude, families never receive a bill for treatment, travel, housing or food – because all a family should focus on is helping their child live.
