CANTON, Mass. (PRWEB) January 24, 2018
Destination XL Group, Inc. (Nasdaq: DXLG), the leading retailer of men's XL apparel, achieved another milestone for the kids at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. Now in its thirteenth year partnering with St. Jude for its Thanks and Giving® campaign, DXL Group broke last year’s all-time high record, raising over $1.45 million to support the St. Jude mission: Finding cures. Saving children. DXL Group offered its associates and customers a variety of ways in which to support and donate to St. Jude in 2017, including their annual St. Jude Walk/Run to End Childhood Cancer™ and Thanks and Giving events.
“We are so grateful to have DXL Group and its loyal associates and customers as part of our St. Jude family,” said Marlo Thomas, National Outreach Director for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. “Funds raised as a result of DXL Group’s commitment and participation in the St. Jude Thanks and Giving campaign help ensure no family ever receives a bill from St. Jude for anything – not for treatment, travel, housing or food, because we believe all a family should worry about is helping their child live.”
To date, DXL Group has raised nearly $9 million for St. Jude, thanks in large part to the tremendous support of its customers and associates. The passion DXL Group has for this amazing organization recently reached a whole new level in its commitment last year to raise $12 million for St. Jude over the next 10 years. This commitment includes having the name “DXL Men’s Apparel” attached to the Memphis-based hospital’s Light Microscopy Center.
“DXL Group has dedicated a great deal of energy and time to support the life-saving mission of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital,” said David Levin, President and Chief Executive Officer at DXL Group. “I’m extremely proud of the passion and drive that our associates and customers have shown toward St. Jude. It only felt right that we step up this commitment and do something truly meaningful to enhance the hospital’s mission.”
