At the end of August, employees of New Kensington, Pennsylvania, supplier Leed’s (UPIC: LEEDS), a member of Polyconcept North America, will make a donation of more than $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 wrapped up at the August 7-8 Relay For Life event held in New Kensington, Pennsylvania.
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 cookbook, a warehouse sale of products, and the relay.
“The Relay for Life is one of a number of charitable initiatives that our employees have undertaken, with the support of the wellness committee,” says Marty Vuono, chief financial officer. “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.”
