The Power of Partnership

St. Jude Children's Research Hospital® was founded based on a lifesaving mission: Finding cures. Saving children.® But, we can't do it alone. Because of the dedicated support of partners like International Paper/Hammermill, St. Jude is able to lead the way the world understands, treats and defeats childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases. Finding a cure is no easy feat. But the chances of a world where no child dies from cancer are higher because of you.


Hammermill Shines During the Holidays

The spirit of giving you have cultivated within your organization cements our partnership and will continue to help ensure no family receives a bill from St. Jude for anything.
Your generosity was instrumental in building awareness for the 2019 St. Jude Thanks and Giving® campaign. Throughout the holiday season, you featured custom artwork by St. Jude patients on your paper reams, and you donated all of the paper for our holiday and spring gift catalogs.

Through your Paper for Life campaign, you highlighted three of our patients, raising awareness and bringing our mission to life nationwide.

Events to Remember

The relationships you've built within your organization have fostered a culture of serving others. In addition to multiple hospital visits in 2019, Hammermill and International Paper also participated in the Dragon Boat Race and hosted two events at Target House for patients and their families.

For years, you've been a participant in the St. Jude Walk/Run, and your employees continue to rally around the event. As a national team in 2019, more than 150 employees and their families participated in this year’s event and raised $3,250 for the children of St. Jude.


A Commitment that Inspires

In 2019, International Paper/Hammermill was awarded the 2019 St. Jude Organizational Support Award. Every year, you support the St. Jude mission through a variety of ways including the St. Jude Thanks and Giving campaign, patient events at Target House, St. Jude Walk Run, St. Jude Memphis Marathon® Weekend and the donation of paper for our spring and holiday gift shop catalogs. We can always count on our friends at International Paper/Hammermill to support the kids of St. Jude!
