RHCC would like to personally thank John Souza of J&K Trucking, who has continued to support Raymond Handling’s fundraising efforts by placing the winning bid for a lift truck every single year the auction has taken place. Because of his generosity, the annual charity auction has now raised almost $150,000 for breast cancer charities doing amazing things in their communities.
“We have really enjoyed participating with Raymond Handling’s annual Pink Pallet Jack Project for breast cancer awareness, and are even more proud that we have won this auction for five consecutive years,” said John Souza, owner at J&K Trucking. “We are grateful for this opportunity to help two very important charities that diligently seek a cure and support women and families affected by breast cancer.”
