There will also be special times when attendees can double their donation via a raffle for a Wounded Warrior gift basket.
Additionally, Heidelberg USA said it will honor Breast Cancer Awareness Month by donating $1 for every badge scan in booth 10143 to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF).
Ricoh participated in Military Makeover: Operation Career airing on Lifetime TV during which three military veterans who work for Ricoh discussed their military service, highlighted Ricoh's initiatives to support veterans and shared personal stories of what those initiatives mean to them.
Also, this year, Ricoh hosted its fifth annual Run for Heroes event, which raises funds for veterans' charities. Additionally, the company has increased its focus on veteran hiring in recent years, an effort recognized with the Best Veteran Hiring Award from the Coalition for Government Procurement.
"What makes Ricoh special is our team and we are proud that many of them, including family members, partners, and customers have served in the military. When planning for PRINTING United, we quickly realized that nothing would be more true to the Ricoh Way or closer to our hearts, than to raise awareness and donations for a charity that does so much for our print community and society at large," said Heather Poulin, senior director of marketing, Commercial Printing Business, Ricoh USA, Inc.
BCRF has raised more than half a billion dollars for lifesaving research since it was founded in 1993 by Evelyn H. Lauder.
As October is Breast Cancer Awareness month, Heidelberg is asking PRINTING United attendees to wear pink on Wednesday, Oct. 23 to show support and visit its booth to donate to BCRF.
"BCRF is a nonprofit organization committed to achieving prevention and a cure for breast cancer – a disease that has truly affected us all. With October being Breast Cancer Awareness Month, we thought there was no better time to show the world that print cares," said Heather Banis, director of marketing for Heidelberg USA.
