Delta Children Donates Nearly $500,000 In Products To Hurricane Harvey and Hurricane Irma Victims
To support families affected by the recent natural disasters, Delta Children is working with longtime nonprofit partner, Delivering Good (previously known as K.I.D.S./Fashion Delivers), to facilitate this donation of vital products to victims of Hurricane Harvey, as well as Hurricane Irma.
Who is Delta Children?
Delta Children is the largest family-owned children’s furniture company in the industry. The company was founded 50 years ago around the idea of helping families live better, and today, co-presidents Sam and Joseph Shamie remain committed to that vision. To uphold that mission, Delta Children is donating $476,443 worth of mini cribs, strollers, beds, chairs, desks, storage bins, and more to children and families affected by the widespread destruction of Hurricanes Harvey and Irma.
“Our hearts are with all of those affected by the recent disasters and hope this donation will help improve the quality of life of the babies, children, and parents who are suffering,” says Delta Enterprise CEO & President, Joseph Shamie.
About Delta Children's Safe Sleep Campaign
For more than 50 years, Delta Children has been the leading voice on educating parents on the importance of creating safe sleep conditions for children through its Safe Sleep Campaign. This nationwide effort involves both manufacturing the safest products for babies and children while also donating products to children in unsafe environments, such the devastating aftermath of natural disasters like Hurricane Harvey and Hurricane Irma.
“A child’s level of security and comfort within their environment is directly correlated to how well he or she deals with traumatic events. With every product donated in this effort, our intention is to provide hope to children and families coping with the trauma of Harvey and Irma,” says CEO & President, Sam Shamie.
We’ve seen communities across the country come together to provide support for all those affected by Hurricane Harvey’s destruction. From product donations to celebrity activism, we hope those struggling know they are in the hearts of many.
