Raymond Handling concepts pink pallet jack project to raise funds for breast cancer research

Raymond Handling Concepts Corporation (RHCC), a materials handling equipment supplier in Northern California and the Northwest, announced that its second annual online auction, The Pink Pallet Jack Project, is currently live on eBay and will be open until noon on October 14.  This year’s auction will benefit two charities, including the Tina Turner Memorial Foundation and Northwest Hope and Healing.

The auction features a Raymond’s 8210 Walkie Pallet Truck, painted the iconic Breast Cancer Awareness pink.  The 8210 Walkie Pallet Truck is the perfect lift truck when you need to navigate tight spaces, and this special edition version will be an eye catcher in any warehouse.  

“Breast cancer touches every one of us.   As the market leader, Raymond Handling Concepts is in a unique position to support this important cause.  To move our enterprise into action is the expression of who we are as leaders in our community,” said Steve Raymond, President of Raymond Handing Concepts Corporation.  “We have painted an 8210 electric pallet jack pink as a declaration of our commitment to this important cause.  The money we raise from the auction will help the charities we are partnered with continue their important work.  And above all, we are having a lot of fun doing it.” 

During the month of October, The Raymond Corporation will be donating $10 from every lift truck sold to support breast cancer research.  RHCC will also be giving Pink Pallet Jack Ribbons to everyone that donates $20 to $500 on the Materials Handling Store.  All proceeds from the Pink Pallet Jack Project ribbons will be donated to charity. 

Open House
In addition to the auction and partner projects, to promote the benefits of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, the company held an open house at its Auburn, Washington facility in  Auburn, WA. The  company’s partners, customers and neighbors were invited to attend, meet Steve Raymond and see the Pink Pallet Jack.
