K2 Solutions Partners With Reindeer Fun Run on Fundraiser
K2 Solutions Inc. will hold its second annual K2 Cans, Coats and Cash Drive through Dec. 7 to benefit the Boys and Girls Clubs of the Sandhills and the Moore County Coalition.
Collection sites include Panera Bread, Mellow Mushroom, Trident Marketing, Watch My Wag and Sport Clips. Any nonperishable food items and gently used or new coats are welcome and needed.
New to this year's food drive is a partnership with the upcoming Reindeer Fun Run, which will be held on Dec. 1 in Aberdeen, as they and K2 both work to support the Boys and Girls Clubs in the area.
In addition to the drive at the above- mentioned locations, K2 Solutions will also be collecting goods and cash on race day (Dec. 1) at the K2 booth in order to stock the Boys and Girls Clubs kitchens through the winter. Donated cash will go toward keeping the Aberdeen location open through the summer months.
In 2011 the Boys and Girls Clubs of the Sandhills provided more than 26,000 meals and served more than 2,000 members in our community. Funding for these programs comes in large part from donations and fundraising efforts.
The Reindeer Fun Run is the clubs' single largest fundraiser and has raised more than $77,000 in the last five years.
The goal for the K2 Solutions and Reindeer Fun Run partnership in this year's K2 Cans, Coats and Cash drive is to increase the cash donation and to provide enough goods for the season.
"The sixth annual Reindeer Fun Run is going to be bigger and better than ever," says David Petsholt, chief marketing officer at Trident Marketing and organizer of the Reindeer Fun Run. "There will be more fun, more surprises, and more support for a very worthy charity. This year we are especially excited to be partnering with K2 Solutions to further our support of the Boys and Girls Clubs of the Sandhills through the K2 Cans, Coats and Cash campaign."
As one of the largest employers in the area, K2 Solutions is committed to its mission of continued service, not just to the country at large, but to its own community here in the Sandhills.
With outreach efforts such as the Special Operations Warrior Foundation golf tournament and events that support other veteran organizations, K2 is similarly dedicated to reaching its neighbors and friends with the K2 Cans, Coats, and Cash drive in partnership with the Reindeer Fun Run event.
