"One small way of expressing our gratitude to our customers is through giving," said Kelly Szwed, marketing and promotions coordinator at Williams Trading. "The customers are the lifeblood of our business and we want to thank them by donating in their names."
According to the company, both causes hold true to Williams Trading Co. Vice President Bob Pyne Jr.
“Both breast cancer and stroke have affected the Pyne family in the past, therefore, the causes are quite literally near and dear to my heart," Pyne said. "We take the fight against breast cancer and stroke prevention very seriously."
Every year breast cancer claims more than 40,000 American women’s lives according to statistics, the company said, adding that stroke is the number-three cause of death and the leading cause of adult disability in the U.S., behind diseases of the heart and cancer.
"We are proud to support both of these causes in an effort to find a cure," Pyne said.
Williams Trading has made donations for five years running and continues to do so until a cure is found, the company said.
