SANTA BARBARA, Calif. (Nov. 2019) — In recognition of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month this past October, Mission Linen Supply, a leading provider of linens, uniforms, laundry services and supplies, raised a total of $8,550 to support breast cancer research, education, awareness and support services.
Company-wide, Mission raised funds through the sale of pink apparel — including shirts, sweatshirts, scrubs and beyond to customers and employees. The company donated a portion of the proceeds from each sale to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF), for a total donation of $1,150.
In addition to these company-wide efforts, Mission’s plant in Salinas, California, launched a fundraising campaign of its own. The plant’s efforts included weekly events such as selling tri-tip plates, building a “wall of hope,” a door decorating contest, two car wash events and a rummage sale. As a result, the plant raised an additional $7,400, which it donated to the National Breast Cancer Foundation (NBCF).
Mission participates in Breast Cancer Awareness Month every October, and each year, the company looks for new ways to expand its efforts and contributions.
“We are honored to once again offer our support to such an important cause,” said Mission President and CEO John Ross. “We’d like to extend a heartfelt thank you to the many customers and employees who contributed this year and helped us make a difference.”
BCRF is an independent, not-for-profit organization that supports clinical research on breast cancer at medical institutions in the United States and abroad. NBCF strives to provide help and hope for those affected by breast cancer through early detection, education and support services.
