Raymond Donates More Than $11,000 to Breast Cancer Foundations Through Pink Pallet Jack Project
Proceeds from seventh annual auction will aid breast cancer patients.
SANTA FE SPRINGS, Calif., Dec. 7, 2020 — Raymond Handling Concepts Corporation (RHCC), Raymond Handling Solutions (RHSI) and Handling Systems, each a Raymond Solutions and Support Center, raised a total of $11,700 for breast cancer awareness during the seventh annual Pink Pallet Jack Project online auction.
Three Raymond 8210 powered pallet jacks were auctioned off on eBay® between Oct. 19-29, with all the proceeds split evenly between the New York-based Tina Fund, the Seattle-based Northwest Hope and Healing, and Breast Cancer Angels in Los Alamitos, California. Winning bids were accepted from transportation companies J&K Trucking, Prism Logistics and JLC Transportation, with their donations going on to assist patients recovering from breast cancer treatments, both physically and financially.
The Raymond® 8210 powered pallet jack offers greater maneuverability to navigate in tight spaces, making it the ideal lift truck for congested store aisles, busy docks and pinwheeling in the back of trailers. The trucks also featured Raymond’s exclusive Click2Creep™ design, which automatically reduces maximum travel speed, providing a tighter turn radius for pinwheeling or right-angle turning.
“We would like to thank our customers for the overwhelming support behind the Pink Pallet Jack auctions, especially in a year that brought us many challenges” said James Wilcox, president of Raymond Handling Concepts Corporation, Raymond Handling Solutions and Handling Systems. “Over the past seven years, this program has raised more than $175,000 to support those who have been touched by this disease. We are grateful for the continued support we receive from our community in giving to this cause.”
