Representatives from Matco Tools, a mobile tool franchise company, and Susan G. Komen came together recently to celebrate the organizations’ two-year partnership. Since the start of its “Tools for the Cause” campaign in 2012, the company has raised more than $436,596.39 for breast cancer awareness through the sales of special edition pink products.

“This is a partnership that everyone in our company is very proud of and has strongly supported from the very beginning,” said Tim Gilmore, president of Matco Tools. “We have worked with Komen for nearly two years and being able to contribute to an organization that supports such a great cause means a lot to our employees and our customers.”

On hand for the event were multiple members of the Matco Tools executive team along with Susan G. Komen regional vice president, Miguel Perez, who was presented with a check representing Matco’s allocated funds from 2012-2013. During the presentation of the check, Perez spoke about Komen’s relationship with Matco.

“Matco Tools has been a great partner for Susan G. Komen and we are extremely pleased with the success of the campaigns thus far,” Perez said. “This company’s dedication to corporate social responsibility has truly been on display over the past year and a half and the donations that have been collected are going to help end breast cancer forever. Matco Tools’ employees and customers should be very proud of their contribution. I know we are all very proud and honored.”
