Shaw receives 2022 St. Jude Organizational Support Award
Dalton-Shaw Industries has been awarded the 2022 St. Jude Organizational Support Award, which recognizes a partner who has found innovative ways to fulfill the life-saving mission of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital through employee participation and a variety of fundraising programs.
“Over the past decade, we’ve seen an incredible partnership develop between our two organizations that has impacted me personally and so many others on our team,” said Scott Sandlin, executive vice president of Shaw’s residential division. “Throughout the year, our employees, customers and partners support the life-saving mission of St. Jude because we believe in this work. I will be back in Memphis in December with my family and our wonderful Shaw team to support the brave families and dedicated staff of St. Jude.”
This award highlights the many ways Shaw has supported St. Jude, including:
- Shaw is the exclusive flooring supplier for the St. Jude Dream Home Giveaway program. Each year, Shaw products are displayed in more than 40 homes across the country.
- Shaw’s Cushion for St. Jude Collection donates $0.18 per square foot to St. Jude. Shaw and his retail partners together donate about $1 million a year from pillow sales.
- Shaw Clean for a Cause products donate $0.25 per bottle of hard surface or carpet cleaner sold and $0.50 from each mop set purchase.
- Shaw employees, customers, vendors and family members raise money for St. Jude by participating in the annual Jude Memphis Marathon Weekend.
This year marks a 10-year partnership between Shaw and St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, a relationship that has raised more than $18 million in support of the fight against childhood cancer.
Shaw’s running team in 2022 is made up of 170 employees, customers, vendors and family members raising money and participating in the St. Jude Memphis Marathon Weekend in December. Shaw runners have raised more than $1 million through the St Jude Heroes program, making Shaw the top fundraising team at the event for three years in a row.
