MKG Employees clean up for Cancer
MKG Cartridge Systems employees pitched in for Earth Day and supported cancer research by collecting trash over their lunch hour. Employees of the MKG’s front office canvassed their neighbourhood sporting garbage bags and rubber gloves, picking up trash to raise money towards Breast Cancer Research. The activity was just the latest in an ongoing effort to support the charity through employee activities. “The day was a huge success thanks in large part to the employees who donated their time, as well as to President Michael Grist, who was kind enough to donate $10 to the charity for every employee,” said Agnes Pylypczuk, who organized the event. Money collected from the clean up will go towards sponsoring Customer Service Rep Sue Moore’s efforts during her walk for the Weekend to End Breast Cancer. Over the weekend of September 10th, Sue will walk a total of 60 km to raise awareness for the disease. Sue has been participating in the event since Breast Cancer touched a family member. “The people at MKG have been very supportive of me and my efforts towards this charity. Last year the company and its employees donated over $800 dollars on my behalf, and this year it looks as though MKG will donate even more!” Moore explained. “At MKG, we’re very lucky to have the kind of people on staff that care so much about the community around them” said President Michael Grist. “People like Agnes and Sue do a wonderful job of gaining support and raising awareness for this very important and worthwhile cause. MKG is pleased to help in any way it can”.
