Pest management professionals (PMPs) around the country are donning pink in recognition and in support of Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
The Clendenin Consulting Group launched a pink logo and all communications will be colored pink. The company also plans to give 10 percent of its October profit to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. This is the first year Clendenin Consulting Group has done this initiative.
“Not only the logo but all emails will be on pink background, all stationery and correspondence sent out will be on pink paper,” says Greg Clendenin, CEO of Clendenin Consulting Group. “We just want to have a part in bringing attention to this disease that is the second-leading cause of cancer death among women. It will kill over 40,000 women in our country this year. One in eight women will be stricken with breast cancer in their lifetime in the United States. We are happy to be able to support foundations such as the Breast Cancer Research Foundation whose focus is on prevention and cure.”
Out in La Verne, California, California Pest Management is equipped with pink B&G sprayers in celebration of the event, as well as pink bows on staff uniforms and trucks.
“All of our staff have personally been touched by cancer, and especially losing a loved one to breast cancer,” says Jim Harmon, owner of California Pest Management. “We celebrate those that have survived and the hope of beating this horrendous disease in the future.”
“So many of us have had either a close friend or a relative get this disease … We all can’t do everything, but each of us can do something,” says Clendenin.
