Originally from Susan G. Komen of Southern Nevada June NewsletterKellex Seating
In 2014, Kellex Seating stunned our Affiliate by coming to town for a design expo and donating all of the gorgeous pink furniture on display to us while also making a very generous monetary donation. This year, they invited us, once again, to partner with them at the HD Expo. For each attendee badge they swiped, a $5 donation was made and a $5000 check was just received by the Affiliate!! And they have again chosen to donate some gorgeous pieces of furniture for VIPink, which is scheduled for Thursday, October 8th at Village Hospitality! But we feel the most amazing part of the relationship we have created with Kellex is how they have embraced Komen as an organization and, even more, how they have incorporated what they have learned into their company. At one of their factories, they have created a pilot program and implemented a healthy living model which includes an affordable fresh food market, an onsite physician’s assistant and purchased gym memberships for all of the employees AND their families! They also brought a mobile mammography unit to the worksite to make it much more convenient to obtain a mammogram. And when telling us about everything, there was so much excitement about what else they could integrate and how they could expand this program to all of their facilities. The sky is definitely the limit! We extend our sincerest thank you to Kellex owners, Chris Rice and Doug Fawcett, and to their wonderful leadership team…you have all made a true commitment to improving the lives of those around you and, for that, we salute you!
