Raymond Handling Concepts raises thousands to benefit breast cancer charitiesMonday, October 26, 2015
Raymond Handling Concepts had a busy week as their Second Annual Pink Pallet Jack Project came to an end, raised close to $7,000 for local breast cancer charities. The company painted one of its 8210 Walkie Pallet Trucks the iconic Breast Cancer Awareness pink for the second year in a row and placed it up for auction. The winning bid was placed by J and K Trucking, who’s $4,500 won the pallet jack and will be a notable amount of the total money donated during Breast Cancer Awareness Month by Raymond Handling Concepts.
“Having just completed the auction for our Pink Pallet Jack Project, Raymond as a company is pleased to have seen such wide-spread support of this program as well as the direct support of great breast cancer charities,” said Steve Raymond, President of Raymond Handling Concepts Corporation. “The materials handling industry has embraced our challenge and taken it to the next level by supporting our efforts as well as championed their own projects to keep awareness going. This is what makes Raymond Handling a family, not just a business and we are proud of our partners and staff for contributing this year.”
To raise additional funds, the company will continue donating $10 from every pallet truck sold in the month of October and accepting donations on the company’s Material Handling Store. All proceeds will benefit The Tina Turner Memorial Foundation and Northwest Hope and Healing. Thus far, the company has raised more than $6,915 for Breast Cancer charities both locally in Auburn, Washington and in Greene, NY, where the company originated. The company is looking forward to next year’s events, as many of their material handling customers and vendors have offered to help with the Pink Pallet Jack Project next year, which means greater participation and a greater positive impact for those affected by the disease.View all Industry News
