May 6, 2024 | Corporate News

Company’s Premium FrogTape® Brand to be the “Official Painter’s Tape” of Special Spaces, Helping Bring to Life Dream Bedrooms for Children Battling Cancer

AVON, OH – (May 8, 2024) – Shurtape Technologies, LLC, an industry-leading manufacturer and marketer of adhesive tape and consumer home and office products, announces its national partnership with Special Spaces, Inc., a non-profit organization dedicated to creating dream bedrooms for children diagnosed with cancer. 

The partnership builds on Shurtape’s 2023 sponsorship of the organization, in which the company helped bring to life an incredible sports-themed bedroom makeover for a Rocky River, Ohio, child battling cancer. As part of the new, three-year sponsorship, Shurtape’s premium painting tape brand, FrogTape® brand painter’s tape, will be recognized as the “Official Painter’s Tape” of Special Spaces, and the company will provide painter’s tape for all of the non-profit’s projects nationwide during the course of the sponsorship. In addition, the company also will make a financial donation over three years to help change the lives of children facing this difficult journey, including a bedroom makeover for a child located near its Consumer & Craftsman division offices in Northeast Ohio. 

“Sponsoring a remarkable organization like Special Spaces is an easy decision if it means helping them continue their mission of transforming the lives of children battling cancer,” said Laura Pierce, Director of Marketing Communications and Media at Shurtape. “We’ve seen firsthand the incredible impact Special Spaces can make on the lives of children deserving of a space to call their own, and we’re honored to further support them as they provide for even more courageous children and their families beyond Northeast Ohio.” Special Spaces operates through a network of volunteers and donors who work tirelessly to design and makeover bedrooms that reflect each child’s unique interests and personality. Since its founding in 2004, Special Spaces has transformed more than 1,700 bedrooms for children across the country, and has grown to 10 chapters in 10 states. The organization was established on the principal belief that children facing this difficult journey need a special space to heal, recover and have fun. 

“Special Spaces is celebrating our 20th anniversary this year, and Shurtape’s sponsorship will make the year-long celebration even more meaningful and lasting,” stated Chris Swain of Special Spaces. “Shurtape’s commitment to making a positive impact aligns with our mission to help others, and this partnership solidifies our ability to create more dream rooms for those in need.”

With this relationship, Shurtape and Special Spaces can provide hope and joy to children and families facing cancer, one dream bedroom at a time.
