What does leukemia have to do with personalized ribbons?
Giving back to the community defines Coller Industries Incorporated’s mission of service. Through our motto of To Serve Our Customers and in maintaining our business practices, every donation helps us reach out to our community. Our most recent donation goes to a fantastic company who is supporting those who have leukemia.
Lisa Baynham, President of Ladies Leukemia League, Inc. describes the organization as “Dedicated, Enthusiastic and Fun.”
Ladies Leukemia League, Inc. is an all-volunteer organization dedicated to raising funds to help find a cure for leukemia and lymphoma. Founded in 1969, Ladies Leukemia League annually awards all funds raised to leukemia and lymphoma research scientists via a grant program. Over the past 48 years, they have raised over $3.7 million in the hopes of finding a cure for these diseases.
“Our only fundraiser is our annual FÊTE de NÖEL Luncheon held in December in New Orleans,” said Baynham. “This event is the premier opening to the holiday season, and over 1,100 attendees attend. The event features a New York-style runway Fashion Show by Dillards. It also features three or four area-children who are facing the challenges of dealing with this disease. The event also includes raffles, a parade of prizes and a silent auction.”
Personalized DYNA Satin Ribbon Rolls
Value priced DYNA Satin Ribbons are perfect for tying bows, gift wrapping and product packaging. The high-quality ribbon won’t fray or tear and has a slight sheen. Made from 100% polyester with fused edges, this ribbon is available in a variety of sizes as well as a large selection of colors.
“Coller Industries donated personalized ribbons which we will use to make jingle bell necklaces for our fundraiser attendees,” said Baynham. “This donation helps reduce the overhead cost of this event so we can maximize the profits donated to leukemia research.”
Every donation we give becomes a part of who we are. And every organization we help, such as Ladies Leukemia League, Inc., defines why service is a must for our company. So, as we get to know those who help with fighting this disease, this donation makes us even more grateful for every opportunity to give back to our community.
