Leed's Employees Raise Money for the American Cancer Society
New Kensington, Pennsylvania-based Leed’s, a member of Polyconcept North America, the second largest hard goods supplier within the promotional products industry, is making a donation in excess of $6,700 to the American Cancer Society’s Relay For Life charity. Fundraising efforts were spearheaded by Leed’s Wellness Committee, a group of nearly two dozen employees from across the organization, and were wrapped up at the August 7 and 8 Relay For Life event held in New Kensington, Pa. Leed’s Wellness Committee, with the support of other employees, conducted a variety of fundraising activities over the past 12 months, including bake sales, the publication and sale of a Leed’s cookbook, a warehouse sale of Leed’s products and the Relay For Life event itself.
“The Relay For Life is one of a number of charitable initiatives that our employees have undertaken, with the support of the Wellness Committee,” explained Marty Vuono, chief financial officer at Leed’s. “I continue to be impressed with the effort and time our employees are willing to invest to help others that may not be as fortunate, especially at a time when many are facing personal and financial challenges of their own.”
Leed’s will send its donation to Relay For Life at the end of the month when fundraising activities officially come to a close. Plans for raising funds for next year’s Relay For Life donation will be initiated by Leed’s Wellness Committee beginning September.
