NEW YORK -- On Dec. 8th, 2011 President of Delta Children's Products Joseph Shamie will receive the Humanitarian Award from Kids In Distressed Situations (K.I.D.S.) at the organization's annual gala in New York City.

Since its inception in 1985, K.I.D.S. has donated over $1 billion worth of new clothing, shoes, toys, books, baby products and more to children in need, an accomplishment they have achieved with the generosity of Delta Children's Products and other companies. "I am deeply honored to receive this award from K.I.D.S. We at Delta Children's Products are committed to improving the lives of children through our partnerships with K.I.D.S and by following the footsteps of its leader, Janice Weinman," said Joseph Shamie.

Through their partnership, Delta Children's Products and K.I.D.S are working together to ensure that all infants have a safe sleep environment. Joseph is leading the industry efforts on safety by educating parents on sleeping habits, as well as donating new cribs to children in need worldwide, since forming his relationship with K.I.D.S. over twenty years ago.
