Breast Cancer Awareness

In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month this past October, Penn Emblem Company held an entire a month of “Dress Down Days”. During these “Dress Down Days” employees paid a small fee if they wished to wear jeans and sneakers around the office. The money collected from this event will be donated to the Fox Chase Cancer Center, which supports breast cancer awareness research. Penn Emblem employees could raise $1,200.00 throughout the month. The company matched the donation and a grand total of $2,400.00 will be donated to Breast Cancer Awareness.

As a woman owned business, Penn Emblem Company feels a social responsibility to give to this worthy cause. The company has several employees who have had Breast Cancer or had family members with the disease.

Greyhound Rescue

In November Penn Emblem employees braved the early morning and volunteered at the Dutton Road Veterinary Clinic with the National Greyhound Adoption Program. The clinic neighbors the Pen Emblem Company Philadelphia facility where 14 Penn Emblem volunteers walked the dogs with friends and family.

Penn Emblem Customer Support Specialist, Rick Dunn, felt so inspired that he adopted one of the dogs as part of his family.

The National Greyhound Adoption Program was founded to help find loving, adoptive homes for former racing greyhound dogs.

The Program provides knowledge and support for greyhound dog adopters and other adoption groups to educate the public and spread awareness about greyhound dogs. This program also provides specialized medical care that specifically targets greyhounds as well. If you are interested in learning more, visit their website, here.

Awareness Campaigns

Penn Emblem Company also participated in several awareness campaigns throughout the month, selling products to raise money for a variety of different causes. In September, Houston, Texas was hit with Hurricane Harvey, one of the largest and most costly hurricanes in United States history. To support the cause, Penn Emblem Company sold its Texas flag stock patch to its customers donating the proceeds to the Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund.

During the month of October, Penn Emblem Company teamed up with SelectPatch to sell caps with interchangeable patches to benefit the Fox Chase Cancer Center. The caps came with four different designs that customers could change out designs for a fresh look.

November was Alzheimer’s Awareness Month and Penn Emblem Company designed and sold sublimated patches that were donated to Alzheimer’s Awareness.

Penn Emblem prides itself on sticking to its values: “Do the right thing. Do things right.” As a family owned business it’s important for the company to give back to the community it serves. To learn more about Penn Emblem is up to, check out our News and Events page, here.
