Raymond Handling Concepts Corporation (RHCC) is gearing up to host its first-ever online charity auction to benefit two breast cancer charities, just ahead of Breast Cancer Awareness Month in October. RHCC — a provider of material handling equipment and integrated solutions serving the West Coast through eight branches in locations including Fremont, California, and Auburn, Washington — will auction a custom pink-painted Raymond® Model 102XM walkie hand pallet truck.
All proceeds from the auction will benefit two nonprofits that support the fight against breast cancer: HERS Breast Cancer Foundation of Fremont and The Community Foundation for South Central New York, a partner of the Tina Turner Memorial Golf Classic in Greene, New York. The auction, which will be held on eBay, begins at midnight on Wednesday, September 10, and closes at 11:59 p.m. on Tuesday, September 16.
For RHCC, it was important to benefit charities on both coasts of the United States. RHCC is an authorized sales and service center for The Raymond Corporation, a global provider of material handling technology based in Greene, New York. Steve Raymond, president of RHCC, is a former resident of Greene and the grandson of the founder of The Raymond Corporation.
“RHCC’s motto is ‘It’s not just business. It’s personal.’ Our vision reaches beyond material handling. As a business, we work to cultivate and nurture relationships with our customers and suppliers, but we also strongly believe in supporting the communities in which we work,” Raymond said. “We are proud to support breast cancer awareness not only in our West Coast sales territories but also in central New York, where The Raymond Corporation took root.”
