Promotions are always great, but when they support a charitable cause, they’re all the better. Each fall Labconco does just that with Cart for the Cure™. We've been doing the Cart for the Cure promotion every year since 2011.
To create the Cart, we chose the official Breast Cancer Awareness pink to paint our Labconco Portable Table. In our Fort Scott, KS facility where these carts are manufactured, the entire paint line from the booth to the hoses to the air handling system is emptied and cleaned before being filled with the pink paint. Each Cart for the Cure’s 18-gauge welded tubular steel frame then receives its glowing, pink coat.
The paint line’s whole draining and cleaning process is repeated when the pink is removed. Because of this, the carts are produced in large batches to limit the number of times the paint colors must be changed. Luckily, our new paint system drastically reduces the time required for the process.
The cart includes all of the features of our Portable Table – sturdy steel construction, two open shelves, ergonomic molded plastic handle grips and a lifetime guarantee. Each shelf runs the full length and width of the cart for more than 625 square inches of storage space per shelf! The final touch is a pink ribbon identification tag to hang from the frame to ensure everyone knows the meaning behind the cart.
Within Labconco, we have a Pink Cart Team to promote Cart for the Cure and manage internal fundraisers including food sales and raffles during the months of the promotion. We also participate in the Race for the Cure put on by Susan G. Komen of Greater Kansas City. At the end of each year, Labconco presents the full donation to the KU Women's Cancer Center.
