Starting this month, sales of some Koch Filter Corp. products will help fund breast cancer research.
Koch is joining with Susan G. Komen for the Cure, one of the world’s largest breast cancer advocacy organizations.
From Aug. 2 to Oct. 31, Koch Filter and its supply partners will launch the “Pink filtration products crafted with pride” campaign from its corporate and manufacturing office in Louisville, Ky. Many of Koch’s Multi-Pleat brand of high-efficiency air filters will be sold in special pink editions.
The company says it will donate at least $30,000 from the sale of the products to the Komen organization in support of its mission to save lives and end breast cancer.
“Cancer knows no stranger. Every 68 seconds, somewhere in the world, someone dies from breast cancer,” said David Koch, president of Koch Filter Corp. “It is the most prevalent cancer among women today. Early detection of breast cancer is critical for women of all ages and we couldn’t think of a better way to bring attention to such an important cause by providing consumers a high-efficiency air filter that improves the quality of air they breathe.”
