Krista Meekins with Ruiz Foods recently presented a check to Jill Bramblett, Executive Director of the McLeod Foundation, for $7,000. The donation, generated from their PINK OUT fundraising efforts in October, will go toward the HOPE Fund. Ruiz Foods has held the PINK OUT in support of McLeod for the past five years.
Team members are encouraged to wear pink during the PINK OUT days in support of the fight against breast cancer. For everyone that comes in to work sporting pink, Ruiz Foods pledged to donate $10 dollars to the McLeod Center for Cancer Treatment and Research.
Donations made in support of the HOPE Fund (Helping Oncology Patients Everyday) benefit oncology patient support services and provide oncology staff with improved access for immediate assistance needs for their patients. Since its establishment in 2014, the HOPE Fund has helped thousands of patients with needs such as transportation, medications, nutrition and unique personal financial struggles.
