White Cap, a distributor of specialty construction supplies and safety products, and DEWALT®, a Stanley Black & Decker brand, have announced a charitable partnership to support the mission of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital®. The partnership involves a $100,000 donation, a special dedication to St. Jude on the No. 20 DEWALT car, a custom-made helmet for driver Christopher Bell, and a portion of proceeds from sales of select DEWALT products at U.S. White Cap branches being donated to St. Jude.
The partnership between White Cap and St. Jude is not new. White Cap has been supporting St. Jude for over 11 years. This year, the partnership with DEWALT further strengthens their commitment to St. Jude’s mission of finding cures and saving children. Richard C. Shadyac Jr., President and CEO of ALSAC, the fundraising and awareness organization for St. Jude, expressed his gratitude for the support of White Cap, DEWALT, Joe Gibbs Racing, and race fans around the globe.
The highlight of the partnership will be on June 25 at Nashville Superspeedway, where a special dedication to St. Jude on the No. 20 DEWALT car will take place. Christopher Bell, the No. 20 racecar driver, will wear a custom-made helmet inspired by artwork created by St. Jude patients. A $100,000 donation will also be presented to benefit St. Jude families.
In the lead-up to the race, a portion of the purchase price of select DEWALT products at all U.S. White Cap branches will be donated to St. Jude. This promotion will be ongoing throughout the month of May.
St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is leading the way in understanding, treating, and curing childhood cancer, sickle cell disease, and other life-threatening disorders. The hospital is the only National Cancer Institute-designated Comprehensive Cancer Center devoted solely to children. Treatments developed at St. Jude have helped push the overall childhood cancer survival rate from 20% to 80% since the hospital opened more than 60 years ago.
White Cap and DEWALT’s partnership with St. Jude is an excellent example of how corporate social responsibility can make a difference in the lives of children and families facing life-threatening diseases. White Cap’s long-standing support of St. Jude, coupled with DEWALT’s mutual passion for the cause, has led to a powerful partnership that will provide life-saving care, research, and the comforts of home while never leaving families with a bill.
