In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, J&K Fresh LLC is giving back to a cause that directly affected a member of the company.
The Inglewood, Calif.-based produce company’s longtime bookkeeper lost her 32-year-old daughter to breast cancer. The Beautiful Day Foundation was established in her remembrance.
“Not only is it an opportunity to give back to the community, we are supporting the cause of one of our long-term key employees,” said chief executive officer Lynette Keffer in a news release.
J&K plans to donate $1 for every documented shipment or transaction through October. The donation will benefit the foundation, which raises breast cancer awareness and provides educational resources to young women through its Global Education Program.
