ALSAC, the fundraising and awareness organization for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital®, awarded DXL Group the Employee Engagement Partner of the Year during its annual Volunteer Appreciation Awards Dinner held at the Domino’s Event Center on the campus of St. Jude. Every year the ALSAC/St. Jude Boards of Directors and Governors honor outstanding volunteers, donors, organizations and corporate partners from across the country for their support and commitment to the lifesaving mission of St. Jude. Richard Shadyac Jr., President and CEO of ALSAC presented the 2016 awards.
This year, DXL Group, the leading retailer of men's XL apparel, received the Employee Engagement Partner of the Year Award for its unwavering commitment and support of the hospital’s mission. DXL Group received this award because of the passion and dedication exhibited by their employees for the St. Jude mission through support of the annual St. Jude Thanks and Giving campaigns, participation in the St. Jude Walk/Run to End Childhood Cancer, employee giving campaign and numerous corporate events that generated more than $1 million in support of the patients and families of St. Jude.
“As a corporate partner, helping children and families of St. Jude is a company-wide passion,” said Mary Luttrell, VP of Marketing and Branding. “The uplifting stories of hope allow us to inspire both our employees throughout the year, and store guests during the annual Thanks and Giving campaign…where so many donations are given.”
St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is leading the way the world understands, treats and defeats childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases. Because the majority of St. Jude funding comes from individual contributions, like employee and customer donations, St. Jude has the freedom to focus on what matters most – saving kids regardless of their financial situation.
DXL Group remains committed to supporting St. Jude through various fundraising efforts. Its efforts help ensure no family ever receives a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food – because all a family should worry about is helping their child live.
