Breast cancer affects so many people. Whether it be those suffering from the disease or the loved ones of those in need, it touches so many lives and leads to so much heartache. In fact, each year in the United States, about 240,000 cases of breast cancer are diagnosed in women and about 2,100 in men.
It’s extremely important to both raise awareness for this ailment, along with provide support for organizations that are helping to fight cancer and develop effective treatment options. This Breast Cancer Awareness Month, we at UMP ask for you to help us stand up to cancer by spreading awareness of the disease, along with providing financial support to quality organizations that offer patients with breast cancer the treatment they both need and deserve.
Supporting Those in Need: The UMP Foundation
In the spirit of providing support to those in need, Universal Metal Products founded The UMP Foundation. This non-profit was established back in 2004 with the mission of contributing financial support to top charitable organizations, including those that help fight cancer. Through The UMP Foundation, UMP employees are able to set aside money from their paychecks to contribute to charitable causes. This allows our employees to make a huge impact on the world around them.
These causes are selected by the UMP Foundation Committee on a quarterly basis. Some of the organizations The UMP Foundation has donated to include:
- American Cancer Society
- Lake Health Foundation
- University Hospitals
- Cleveland Clinic Foundation
Universal Metal Products is a female-owned company that helps with the creation of metal components for the automotive, appliance, and industrial industries. We are able to create a variety of custom and standard components for vehicles, HVAC units, refrigerators, electronics, sub pumps, and much more. Along with volunteering and charity, we value equality. This is why we focus on creating a culture of inclusivity. We do this by offering family-friendly policies and work shift hours, equal pay for equal work, and a dedication to providing a positive and harassment-free workplace environment.
UMP cares about our clients, our staff, and the members of our community. We hope you join us in celebrating Breast Cancer Awareness Month by donating to a top cancer awareness and treatment services charity. Remember, every dollar counts!
