Industry News: Klosterman Bread Honors Survivors During Breast Cancer Awareness Month
Cincinnati Brand Supports Pink Ribbon Girls During 5th Annual Campaign
CINCINNATI, OH (October 1, 2017) – Klosterman Bread, a family-owned bakery headquartered in Cincinnati, is launching its 5th annual campaign benefitting Pink Ribbon Girls. Each year, Klosterman makes a sizeable donation to Pink Ribbon Girls in support of breast cancer research and Breast Cancer Awareness Month. On October 1st, the campaign kicked off with Klosterman’s Pink Ribbon Girls Power of Wheat Organic Bread Line. Consumers can show their support of Klosterman’s efforts by purchasing specially marked Pink Ribbon Girls Loaves in stores throughout the Greater Cincinnati and Dayton areas.
Pink Ribbon Girls’ mission is to balance the fear and uncertainty that breast cancer and other reproductive cancers bring to women and families by providing direct services, education and support. Last year alone, the 125-year old bread brand donated $10,000 to Cincinnati and Dayton’s own Pink Ribbon Girls. This year, the company aims to do the same for local families touched by cancer. Klosterman Bread’s Pink Ribbon Girls Power of Wheat Loaf Campaign donation will again contribute to the free services Pink Ribbon Girls offers its members through its Simply Fight! and NO Age NO Stage programs.
“So many of us have been touched by this life-changing disease.” said Kim Klosterman, CEO, Klosterman Baking Company. “Pink Ribbon Girls do a great job of helping women when they need it the most. We are proud to partner with them to help raise awareness, and especially support, for families who are affected.”
“We are so excited to partner with Klosterman Bread once again for the Pink Ribbon Loaves donation campaign,” shared Tracie Martin, Founder of Pink Ribbon Girls. “Support of this magnitude is essential for us to properly serve women and their families as they are going through breast cancer or other reproductive cancers.”
The Pink Loaf has a different look this year. Klosterman is excited to announce the launch of its new line of USDA Certified Organic Bread into Walmart and select Kroger stores. Each of the four varieties will be personalized with a Pink Ribbon Girls Power of Wheat sticker. A portion of the proceeds from the sale of Klosterman Organic Raisin, 100% Whole Wheat, Honey White and Honey Wheat loaves will be donated directly to Pink Ribbon Girls’ meal program. Promoting Pink Ribbon Girls is the ideal way for Klosterman Bread to be involved in the community while supporting a local nonprofit organization that it cares about. Pink Ribbon Girls continues to grow the organization so “No One Travels this Road Alone.” Klosterman Bread, joining Pink Ribbon Girls for another year of breast cancer awareness, will help the organization to broadcast its message to a greater part of the community.
