Bliffert Lumber & Hardware
Starts 2020 in the Pink
Driving to Fight Breast Cancer
Bliffert Lumber & Hardware has added an unusual new delivery truck to their fleet. Instead of the traditional Bliffert white and blue, this delivery truck is sporting a pink paint job to support Susan G. Komen Wisconsin, a local nonprofit dedicated to bringing an end to breast cancer. More than just a positive message, the truck also symbolizes a fun philanthropic effort by the company: Bliffert Lumber & Hardware will donate 20 cents for every mile driven by the pink truck in 2020.
“Breast cancer affects us all, and the pink truck is a reminder that we need to fight breast cancer every day,” said Eli Bliffert, Vice President of Bliffert Lumber & Hardware. “We’re excited to contribute to the efforts of Komen Wisconsin while helping spread awareness for the great work that they’re doing in the community.”
Komen Wisconsin fights breast cancer on all fronts, focusing efforts on four mission-based pillars: research, care, community and action. Every donation to Komen Wisconsin funds life-changing research, empowers people with fact-based information, provides screening and treatment support to local neighbors in need, and helps advocate for compassionate public policy and patient rights. This 360-degree approach is needed to achieve the ultimate goal of a world without breast cancer.
“We are so excited about Bliffert’s wonderful support of Komen Wisconsin,” said Nikki Panico, Executive Director, Komen Wisconsin. “Every dollar raised helps those in need by directly funding cutting-edge research as well as providing financial support for breast health services and support services for those with breast cancer through the Komen Wisconsin Breast Cancer Assistance Fund.”
