Olive Garden is proud to be the National Sponsor of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) Hero Squad Program. For more than 20 years, Olive Garden’s Hero Squad Program has rewarded elementary and middle school children for their participation in the LLS Hero Squad, a unique service-learning, philanthropy and character-building initiative in which students collect donations, including their own spare change, to support LLS’s efforts to find cures for blood cancers and ensure that patients have access to treatments. The top fundraising classroom in each school receives a pasta party courtesy of Olive Garden, which aims to bring its family dining experience to the classroom. With Olive Garden’s support, LLS Hero Squad Program has raised more than $315 million since 1994, and is just one of the many community and charity initiatives of the Olive Garden family of 800+ restaurants, which strives to bring hospitality and care to every community we serve.
