Our Partnership with St. Jude Children's Research Hospital®

Our Partnership with St. Jude Children's Research Hospital®

At Wildtree, our mission has always been to support families and individuals in their quest to eat and live healthy. But as we and our customers evolve, so does our vision for the future. Do more. Be More. And so our partnership with St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital® begins. 

Our Donation Goal of $100,000 for St Jude 
 
With every purchase of $25+, $1 is donated to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital®. Additionally, our Wildtree community is given the opportunity to make an add-on donation during checkout. Over the course of year, there will be expanded give back opportunities in support of various St. Jude campaigns that will help raise both awareness and funds for the lifesaving mission of St. Jude. 

More About The Mission Of St. Jude  
 
Located in Memphis, Tennessee, St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital® is leading the way the world understands, treats, and defeats childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases. With a simple mission of Finding cures. Saving children.®, St. Jude is a place where doctors across the nation send their toughest cases. Through private donations and partnerships with companies like Wildtree, families whose children are treated at the hospital never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food - because all a family should worry about is helping their child live. 
 

Why St. Jude From Russell Ray, CEO 
 
“A key component to our mission has always been to support families in getting healthy, delicious food on the table each night. But as we embark on this new partnership with St. Jude we begin to live out our new vision of how Wildtree can live its values along with our loyal customers and connect in a new way beyond our products,” says Wildtree CEO, Russell Ray. “As a father of five, the work that St. Jude does to ensure that families can focus on their children’s treatment and recovery without ever seeing a bill is humbling and we are grateful to be a part of that support.” 

How The Wildtree Community Can Impact St. Jude 

Because the majority of St. Jude funding comes from donors, St. Jude has the freedom to focus on what matters most—saving kids regardless of their financial situation. Every dollar makes a difference. 

  • $3 – Could help provide pediatric isolation masks to help protect patients with compromised immune systems. 
  • $10 – Could help provide a new toy for hospital play areas or recreational areas at St. Jude housing facilities. 
  • $36 – Could help provide a St. Jude family with meals for one day in the Kay Kafe, the St. Jude cafeteria. 
  • $250 – Could help provide a meal card for a St. Jude family for one week: St. Jude provides patients and their families with meal cards for breakfast, lunch and dinner in Kay Kafe, the hospital’s cafeteria. 
  • $1000 – Could help cover about two-thirds of the cost of one day of chemotherapy: Treatments invented at St. Jude have helped push the overall survival rate for childhood cancers from 20% when the hospital opened in 1962 to more than 80% today. 
  • $10,000 – Could help provide grocery gift cards for two years for one St. Jude family: Families whose children are undergoing long-term treatment live at St. Jude Target House free of charge. Each week, Target House families receive a grocery gift card from Kroger so that they may cook their own meals and eat together in their apartment if they choose. These shared meals help families maintain a sense of togetherness during trying times.
