Sbarro To Launch 2016 Slices for Hope to Benefit St. Jude Children's Research HospitalSbarro, the iconic quick service restaurant best known for its XL New York style pizza by the slice, launches its Slices for Hope campaign on Sunday to raise money for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.

On May 8 and June 19, 2016, Sbarro has committed to donate $.50 for every slice sold at company-owned eateries. Additionally, Sbarro will encourage guests to show their support and add on their own donations for the research hospital between Mother’s Day and Father’s Day.

David Karam, CEO of Sbarro. “We hope that our guests will see this as an opportunity to show their support by purchasing slices and making their own donations for this incredible organization.”
