You can support the Jimmy Fund at the Taco Bell on Myrtle Avenue until July 18.

A popular fast food chain on Myrtle Avenue in Ridgewood is participating in an annual fundraising campaign to help “Strike Out Cancer.”

Through July 18, the Taco Bell located at 57-29 Myrtle Ave. will be joining several other Taco Bell and Kentucky Fried Chicken (KFC) locations across New York and New England and take part in the Jimmy Fund’s “Strike Out Cancer” pin-up campaign.

Customers will be asked to donate $1, $3 or $5 to the Jimmy Fund. Those who do will receive a baseball pin-up to write their name or the name of a friend or loved one. The pin-ups will be displayed in the restaurants and stores during the campaign.

Those who contribute $3 or more to the campaign at participating Taco Bell and KFC locations will receive a coupon sheet featuring deals from Taco Bell, KFC, Water Country, Museum of Science, Franklin Sports, Valvoline Instant Oil Change℠, Mama Rosie’s and Sully’s Brand.

When customers purchase a baseball pin-up, 100 percent of the proceeds go directly to the Jimmy Fund, which supports cancer research and patient care at Boston’s Dana-Farber Cancer Institute.

“We are looking forward to raising critical funds for cancer research and patient care at Dana-Farber through our longstanding ‘Strike Out Cancer’ campaign,” said Roger Lockwood, chairman of Lockwood/McKinnon Company, a Taco Bell franchisee and a trustee of Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. “We are grateful to our loyal customers who have generously supported this campaign for the past 15 years, to help work towards a world without cancer.”

Taco Bell began supporting the Jimmy Fund in 2002, and in 2006, KFC joined the fold to be a part of “Strike Out Cancer,” together helping the program raise more than $2.2 million.
