E-Z Movers, INC. of Chicago announces a record donation for the non-profit Susan G. Komen, Chicagoland to help fight breast cancer.
With record sales expected for 2012, E-Z Movers of Chicago also expects to make a record donation to the Chicagoland Area Affiliate of the Susan G. Komen for the Cure®. The Affiliate has awarded over $11.5 million towards the fight against breast cancer by funding grassroots breast health education, breast cancer screening, navigation and treatment projects, as well as national research. Up to seventy five percent (75%) of net proceeds generated by the Komen Chicagoland Affiliate stay in the metropolitan area while the remaining income supports the Susan G. Komen for the Cure® Grants Program for research.
For every move E-Z Movers completes, the company donates $2 to the breast cancer organization. Additionally, the moving company donates moving services for the Susan G. Komen Chicagoland Race for the Cure® annually. The services and cash donated by E-Z Movers totaled over $20,000 in 2011.
A long-time supporter of Komen Chicago, the trucks of E-Z Movers of Chicago are noticeably different than other moving companies: they’re pink to represent the company’s commitment to the cause of finding a cure for breast cancer.
“We’re very committed to this cause, which will affect nearly one in eight U.S. women within the course of their lifetime. We’ve built our entire company around supporting this research, from the color of our trucks to our annual appeal for donations. We want to thank our customers for helping us reach our yearly donation goals. Because of them, we’re able to give more money to cancer research!” said E-Z Movers.
The moving company encourages those not currently in need of moving services to donate directly to the Chicagoland Area Affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure® HERE.
