White Cap, a distributor of specialty construction supplies, including fasteners and safety products, is partnering with DEWALT, a provider or tools and total job-site solutions, to support the critical mission of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital’s Finding cures. Saving children.
On June 25th, at the Nashville Superspeedway, there will be a special dedication to St. Jude on the No. 20 DEWALT car, co-branded with White Cap. It will include a special presentation of a $100,000 donation to benefit St. Jude families.
Because of generous donations like these, families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing, or food — so they can focus on helping their child live.
With the help of Joe Gibbs Racing, No. 20 race-car driver Christopher Bell will be sporting a custom-made helmet inspired by artwork created by St. Jude patients. In addition, White Cap and DEWALT will be inviting the family of a St. Jude patient to be special guests at the race.
“White Cap’s long-standing support of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital and DEWALT’s mutual passion for this cause, is what brought us together to fundraise and promote the mission of St. Jude through a special event on June 25 at Nashville Superspeedway,” said John Stegeman, Chief Executive Officer, White Cap. “We are proud to make a difference for St. Jude with our supplier partner DEWALT.”
In 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 benefit St. Jude during the month of May. Details about this promotion can be found here and at your closest White Cap branch.
“In partnership with White Cap, DEWALT is honored to support St. Jude’s mission of providing life-saving care, research, and the comforts of home while never leaving families with a bill,” said Maria Ford, president, Commercial Construction, Stanley Black & Decker. “St. Jude builds a sense of community that aligns with our company’s purpose of ‘For Those Who Make the World.'”
“We are incredibly grateful for 11 years of support from our friends at White Cap,” added Richard C. Shadyac Jr., president and CEO of ALSAC, the fundraising and awareness organization for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. “This partnership, along with the commitment of DEWALT, Joe Gibbs Racing and race fans around the globe, will help to accelerate our mission to find cures and save more of the 400,000 children around the world with cancer each year.”
