We Applaud Hammermill! by Jessica Hodges
Why should we be proud of Hammermill? Isn’t Hammermill just a paper company?
Well, the team at Shoplet believes that a company can be much more than just the products that it sells. I mean, after all, Shoplet is a business supply e-retailer, which doesn’t say much about what Shoplet’s really all about! What matters most is the values and ethical commitments that a company expresses as crucial to its core identity.
Hammermill has gone above and beyond with raising awareness for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, a phenomenal hospital with facilities dedicated to treating children with cancer and other catastrophic diseases. St. Jude’s gifted staff provides its young patients with cutting edge advancements in treatments and care, often at no cost. Being that the daily operating cost for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is $1.9 million- a cost that is primarily covered by individual contributors- we think that Hammermill’s efforts to promote St. Jude’s “Thanks and Giving” campaign is absolutely worthy of applause!
But just what has Hammermill Paper done to raise awareness? Here’s what:
–>is donating $250,000 to St. Jude’s Thanks and Giving campaign.
–>is sponsoring mile marker 8 on the St. Jude Memphis Marathon race course.
–>is posting facts, daily, on their social media sites about the amazing advancements in aid and scientific research at St. Jude.
–>pledges to donate $1 for every new “Like” of their Facebook page & every “Share” of these posts, which are also found on their FB page, before December 31st:
This is a great way to make a difference- because every sign of support, no matter how small, counts!
