McAllen, TX (April 2, 2018) – This Spring, Taco Palenque is kicking off its fundraising efforts to help St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital® continue to lead the way the world understands, treats and defeats childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases. Through the St. Jude Give thanks. Give hope.™ campaign, customers are encouraged to donate $1 or more at the register to support the lifesaving mission of the hospital.

Taco Palenque invites patrons to join in on the pin-up action at their McAllen locations on Tuesday, April 3, 2018 to jumpstart fundraising so patients 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. The campaign will wrap up on Monday, April 30, 2018, “El Día del Niño/Children’s Day.”

In exchange for a $1 or more donation at checkout, patrons will receive a spring-themed paper pin-up featuring a St. Jude patient. Thanks to generous donations through programs like St. Jude Give thanks. Give hope., St. Jude has the freedom to focus on what matters most – saving kids regardless of their financial situation.

“We know our guests in Laredo, Cotulla and the Rio Grande Valley are very generous and we are counting on their participation with just a $1 pledge! We extend this invitation to all friends, family and business partners to join us, in St. Jude Give Thanks. Give Hope. happening at all our Taco Palenque restaurants. Together we can give child cancer patients the medical treatment they deserve and also support their families in this great battle against cancer.” said Juan Francisco “Pancho” Ochoa, Taco Palenque Founder. “By sponsoring a pin-up, customers are doing more than giving money, they are helping to save lives.”

This is the first time that Taco Palenque has participated in the St. Jude Give thanks. Give hope. campaign. One hundred percent of the donations raised during this campaign go directly to the hospital, which is where doctors often send their toughest cases because St. Jude has the world’s best survival rates for some of the most aggressive forms of cancers. To date, St. Jude Give thanks. Give hope. has raised more than $4.8 million for the kids of St. Jude.
