Caring Causes: Whitmor/St. Jude

Whitmor is putting their design skills and creativity to use for a great cause. They’ve created a bright and cheerful pattern specifically for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. Their new pattern will be applied to several of their core, best-selling laundry items. When you purchase this design filled with love, hope, courage, strength and heart you’ll also be giving back. 10% of the wholesale cost of the St.Jude-inspired pattern will go back to St. Jude’s to help with research. 

The hospital does remarkable work for children around the world every day and Whitmor is proud to contribute in this way. The words on the pattern were just a few the Whitmor team came up with that represent the hard work and dedication St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital provides to their precious patients. Whitmor strives to support the community so this partnership made perfect sense according to Executive Vice President Scott Felsenthal: "Being able to create products to support St. Jude Children's Hospital is something that we are extremely excited about. Partnering with such an incredible organization that doesn't require a child or their family to pay a penny for treatment and housing is a reminder that all of us at Whitmor have a purpose in helping not only consumers in their everyday lives by providing them with products to keep them organized, but a purpose in helping the community in which we live and making the world a better place for those that are dealing with life-threatening illnesses."
The non-profit organization is based just minutes from Whitmor’s Southaven, Mississippi office so they witness their incredible, inspiring efforts day and night. St. Jude’s works tirelessly to be sure no family ever receives a bill for treatment, travel, housing or food. This is possible ONLY through donations and contributions from businesses that support those kids. 
Fred's, Inc., who is also Memphis-based and a long-time partner of Whitmor, will be the first retailer to offer a selection of the St. Jude items. Fred’s will carry three of the five available items in all 659 stores
  • ironing board cover
  • cotton laundry bag
  • collapsible hamper
