JK Group Goes Red to Raise Lifesaving Funds for Women’s Heart Health
Philanthropy and corporate giving are at the heart of what we do (pardon the pun). So as you can imagine, nothing gets JK Group’s tickers pumping more than a chance to give back! Recently, we had the opportunity to show a little love for the American Heart Association’s Go Red for Women campaign. The campaign’s goal is to spread the word about the life saving importance of healthy choices in order to combat heart disease, the number one killer of women.
To get the job done, JK Group volunteers quickly mobilized on this employee giving initiative, forming our very passionate and dedicated Go Red Team who put their hearts and souls into creating a fun-loving, heart themed event. Donning red and creating a festive space in our office, decked out with red and white hearts and balloons, they got us all in the spirit with a (very appropriate, we might add) heart healthy snack sale! Employees could pick from a myriad of munchies like fruits and veggies… and maybe a sweet treat or two. They could also buy American Heart Association pins and other fun items to show their support. And all that hard work definitely paid off! At the end of the day, our hearts were all a flutter as we counted the day’s reserve. JK Group was delighted to match 100% of all employee contributions and funds raised to help fight heart disease in women!
Thank you again to our Go Red Team and to everyone who did their part. To learn more about this very worthy campaign, check out the American Heart Association’s site at www.goredforwomen.org.
