Hattiesburg Chili's hosts donation day for Childhood Cancer Awareness Month

HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) - Guests at Chili's restaurants can help St. Jude Children's Research Hospital tackle childhood cancer simply by eating out Monday.

Manager of the Hattiesburg Chili's restaurant, William Littlejohn said there are other ways to donate if people can't make it to the eatery to donate.

"You can go online at www.chilis.com and donate, we also have several team members including myself taking donations," said Littlejohn. "You can send it through PayPal or you can come in to the restaurant and put it on a credit card or just use cash."

All Chili's locations will donate profits from Monday's sales to the hospital.

'Donate Profits Day' commemorates the final day of Chili's two-week long campaign to raise money for the world-renowned pediatric research hospital during the month of September, which is recognized as National Childhood Cancer Awareness Month.
