Williams Machinery's Pink Forklift Program Raises Funds to Support Cancer Research
February 14, 2018
Surrey, BC, February 9: Williams Machinery celebrated the second year of its Pink Forklift Program with a $15,000 donation to the Canadian Cancer Society(CCS) on Friday, February 9th.
In 2016, Williams Machinery partnered with the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation (now CCS) to support the foundation’s effort through the Pink Forklift Program. Two CLARK forklifts were custom painted and added to the rental fleet in Surrey with 100% of the operating profits donated to the CCS.
Kevin Dowle, Operations Manager at Williams Machinery and Kathy Fowler, Chair of the company’s W.E. Care Committee were on hand to present the cheque.
“This cause resonates with so many of us who have been affected by the disease,” commented Kevin. “The pink forklifts increase visibility for the Canadian Cancer Society and have been seen on work sites throughout Metro Vancouver. We appreciate our customers support in making this program a successful one.”
