Office Sign Company recently made a $2,500 donation to the Alzheimer's Association as part of its "Know the Signs" awareness campaign.
The business had pledged to donate $2 from every Alzheimer's awareness mug sold during the month of June as well as 10 percent of overall sales June 21, which is often designated by the association as a day to honor patients and caregivers who struggle with the disease.
Office Sign Company is proud to announce for the entire month of June we will be partnering with the Minnesota-North Dakota Alzheimer's Association in our #KnowTheSigns campaign.
Alzheimer's disease has impacted the lives of many friends and families of the Office Sign Company team and beyond, and it is our hope to give back our time and resources to help raise awareness for Alzheimer's disease and support the efforts being made by the Alzheimer's Association.
How You Can Help:
For the entire month of June, we are selling specialty custom awareness mugs, including our Brain Matters mug and our Know the 10 Signs mug. Have your name printed on these custom mugs and $2.00 from every mug sold will be donated directly to the Alzheimer's Association.
On June 21st, our #LongestDay event begins. We have committed to donating 10% of our company sales on this day to the Alzheimer's Association. If you're looking for new signage, banners, name badges, promotional items, vinyl decals, or more, there is no better time to shop for your individual or company needs, knowing that 10% of your order will be benefitting the Alzheimer's Association.
