November 14, 2017 - More than 200 Shore Bancshares employees recently participated in the Benefits That Benefit Children campaign to help raise $2,500 for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital®, which is leading the way the world understands, treats and defeats childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases.

Benefits That Benefit Children is a cause marketing campaign that helps increase awareness of major issues that affect children’s health by generating donations when participating employers offer certain Chubb insurance benefits and their employees receive voluntary benefit information. (No purchase is necessary for Combined Insurance/Chubb to make a donation.) As a result of the various employees who received voluntary benefit information, Combined Insurance, a Chubb company, made the $2,500 donation to honor their participation. Combined Insurance is a leading provider of individual supplemental accident, disability, health, and life insurance products.

“I am proud of our employees who participated in the program, which advances important cancer research and treatment and saves lives,” said Lloyd L. "Scott" Beatty, Jr., President and Chief Executive Officer of Shore Bancshares, Inc. “St. Jude research is crucial to unlocking treatment and cures and I want to thank our team for attending the Benefits That Benefit Children meetings supporting this effort. We encourage other businesses in the community to join us in this important campaign we refer to as BTBC.” 

Founded by entertainer Danny Thomas, St. Jude opened in 1962 and has spent more than half a century finding cures and saving children. Its groundbreaking research has helped push the survival rate for childhood cancer from less than 20 percent when the hospital opened in 1962 to more than 80 percent today.

Thanks to generous supporters, families never receive a bill for treatment, travel, housing or food – because all a family should worry about is helping their child live. Because the majority of St. Jude funding comes from individual contributors, St. Jude has the freedom to focus on what matters most – saving kids regardless of their financial situation. 

“We are thrilled to partner with Shore Bancshares and provide a donation that touches the lives of children across the country, including Maryland, and throughout the world,” said Chris Martin, President of Chubb Workplace Benefits and Chief Operating Officer of Combined Insurance. “The Benefits That Benefit Children program enables us to help lead the fight against childhood cancer and other diseases while meeting with wonderful employees like those at Shore Bancshares.”
