Taco Bell at Westfield Trumbull Mall participates in Strike Out Cancer campaign

From July 23 through Aug. 12, customers at participating Taco Bell, KFC restaurants, and The Paper Store’s locations, will be invited to contribute $1, $3, or $5 to the Jimmy Fund’s Strike Out Cancer pin-up campaign. In return for their contributions, customers receive a baseball pin-up on which they can write their name. The pin-ups will be displayed in restaurants and stores, showing customers how easy it is to make a difference in the fight against cancer.

Taco Bell, located at Westfield Trumbull Mall, 5065 Main St., is participating in Strike Out Cancer campaign.

Taco Bell has supported the Jimmy Fund since 1999. In 2007, KFC joined their efforts, and in 2011 The Paper Store stepped up to the plate to be a part of Strike Out Cancer, all working together to help the program raise more than $1.8 million. When customers purchase a baseball pin-up, 100% of the proceeds benefit cancer research and care at Boston’s Dana-Farber Cancer Institute.

“We’re thrilled to partner with the Jimmy Fund again this summer to support patient care and cancer research at Dana-Farber,” said Roger Lockwood, Chairman of Lockwood/McKinnon Company, a Taco Bell franchisee and Trustee, Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. “Our customers continue to show great generosity and excitement contributing to this important cause and we’re proud to support an organization that impacts so many people.”
