Best Buy, customers raise $20M for St. Jude

MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) - Best Buy recently raised $20 million for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.

The money was donated by Best Buy customers during the St. Jude Thanks and Giving campaign.

To celebrate, St. Jude patients got to play in an interactive, technology-themed activity center designed by Best Buy.

"When you come here, and you actually see the work in action and you see the families…that really is really meaningful to our employees," Andrea Wood, Director of Community Relations at Best Buy, said.

Over the past five years, Best Buy has been able to donate $60 million to St. Jude through the holiday campaign.
