Building a Brighter Future for St. Jude Kids
The single biggest annual St. Jude fundraiser is the St. Jude Dream Home® Giveaway. About 43 lucky families win a beautiful new home each year, and every ticket sold goes to fund groundbreaking research and lifesaving treatments at St. Jude. We absolutely couldn’t do this without you and our dedicated builder partners. On top of generously providing the floors in every Dream Home® market since 2012, Shaw Floors goes the extra mile to support the floor signing events. Every Dream Home ticket sold amplifies each Dream Home® which creates an inviting space potential winners hope to call their own. The annual in-kind donation valued at more than $1 million helped St. Jude continue to make ground-breaking discoveries and saving lives.
Your additional support providing the t-shirts and covering the cost of food for construction appreciation events help make a difference in our local communities.
Your product promotions benefited St. Jude families through the Shaw Floors Carpet Cushion Collection for St. Jude, the Patcraft Butterfly Effect Carpet Tile and Shaw Mop Cleaner Kit. The Shaw Floors Carpet Cushion for St. Jude collection has continued to grow and has raised $5 million since its inception. The collections not only engaged retail partners and consumers, but also opened their eyes to a simple way to support the kids of St. Jude.
For the 6th year, Shaw Floors stepped up to support the kids of St. Jude as a Gold Sponsor of the 2019 St. Jude Memphis Marathon® Weekend. As the top Corporate Fundraising Team, your employees—more than 100 runners from across the country—came together to raise more than $170,000 as St. Jude Heroes. While in town for race weekend, you incorporated Dealer Council members with an invitation to tour the campus and discuss additional ways to increase support for St. Jude.
For the past 8 years, you've cultivated a spirit of giving within your organization. It's that quality that cements our partnership and will continue to help ensure no family receives a bill from St. Jude for anything.
Additionally, Scott Sandlin, Sr. Vice President, Sales and St. Jude Executive Champion, participated as the first St. Jude Hero in the Ironman World Championship in Kona, HI and raised an astounding $82,000. As part of the event, Scott and St. Jude were featured in the NBC Ironman Special.
