National Convenience Distributors celebrated the American Cancer Society’s Evening of Hope yesterday at 317 Main Street in Farmingdale.
The event was created to raise necessary funds for programs and services that benefit cancer patients and their caregivers, while also providing educational resources to attendees. Amongst food and drink, the evening recognizes unsung heroes within the ACS, as well as Long Island’s leading donors and volunteers — such as NCD’s proprietary brand, Island Coffee.
Island Coffee has been a contributor to ACS’ Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk at Jones Beach for seven years — providing fresh pastries and hot coffee in their signature pink cups — with 100% of proceeds donated to the ACS. In addition to Island Coffee’s efforts, NCD employees participate in the walk.
“We are honored to be an American Cancer Society award recipient at the Evening of Hope,” said Marty Glick, executive vice president of divisional sales at NCD. Over the years, Glick has been a key player in cultivating NCD’s partnership with the ACS.
“It’s such a humbling experience to be present at these events. We always wish we could do more, but we are proud to be a part of a team that is beating cancer.”
Upholding their tradition of giving, NCD will be attending the 2022 Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk this October.
