This Labor Day UFCW and The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society Celebrate Their Partnership to End Blood Cancer
Shortly after Labor Day, September 6th will mark the beginning of Blood Cancer Awareness month–and is a reminder to us why the partnership between the UFCW and the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) is so important.
Working together since 1983, the UFCW has helped raise over $60 million dollars for LLS through charity golf tournaments, auctions, bottle drives and a range of other events, all of which has gone towards the development of lifesaving drugs and working toward the shared goal of a world without blood cancers and achieving their mission to cure leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin’s disease and myeloma. Many UFCW staff, local union leadership, and rank and file members also greatly enjoy participating in the LLS Light the Night walk, as well as the Team in Training campaign.
Together in this special partnership, LLS and UFCW are truly helping blood cancer patients live better, longer lives.
For blood cancer awareness month, the LLS is attempting to raise $300,000 in 30 days. Please consider helping us get them to their goal by donating today. You can find free information and more info about support services and the LLS’s lifesaving blood cancer research around the world by going to http://www.lls.org/.
