RISMEDIA, December 9, 2010—Employees of Weichert Relocation Resources Inc. (WRRI), a relocation and assignment management company, recognized Breast Cancer Awareness Month by raising close to $5,000 for Susan G. Komen for the Cure, the company has announced. Fundraising efforts were coordinated by employee volunteers at WRRI’s six regional offices throughout North America, with WRRI adding a corporate donation to the final amount.
“Whether it’s a family being relocated across the country or people in need within their own communities, our colleagues have a true passion for making a difference in the lives of others,” said Aram Minnetian, president of WRRI. “We are proud of our colleagues’ support of our Breast Cancer Awareness Month fundraising efforts, and their commitment to helping to find a cure for this disease.”
Launched in 1982, Susan G. Komen for the Cure is one of the world’s largest grassroot networks of breast cancer survivors and activists, funding research grants and community-based outreach projects. WRRI’s donation will be sent to Komen for the Cure affiliates in communities near WRRI’s offices to aid the Foundation in its mission of educating and treating local individuals.
This fundraising effort was undertaken as part of WRRI’s CommunityCares program, through which the company encourages employee volunteerism and corporate giving that supports helping families and improving communities.
