Love is in the Air

As part of our partnership with Integris, we have the amazing opportunity to work on special projects for them throughout the year.   For the third year in a row we’ve had the pleasure of working with the employees at Integris Comprehensive Breast Care Center to help design, promote and sell shirts for breast cancer awareness.  A donation from each shirt sold is made to the Susan G. Komen Foundation. 

Each year the program has gained popularity, and this year was tremendous!  The shirts were pre-sold to Integris employees via the iWear website that Heritage manages on behalf of the hospital.  Sales increased by over 40% this year and nearly 2,500 shirts were sold which proves they sure do LOVE these shirts (and LOVE helping a good cause!)!

Heritage worked alongside the Breast Care Center staff and set up an employee distribution area at their two larger locations.  Several hundred additional shirts were sold during the two distributions.  We would have taken pictures of the crowds of people lining up to buy the extra shirts but we were too busy!  Additional shirts will be sold at the Integris Breast Care Centers and will be available to the public.  To say the shirts were a hit, would be an understatement!  They love, love, love these shirts - and we love, love, love Integris!
