Hammock Source donates $10,000 to cancer research

American Cancer SocietyGREENVILLE, N.C. – The Hammock Source has made a $10,000 donation to The American Cancer Society toward cancer research through its Original Pawleys Island division.

A formal check presentation was made to representatives from the American Cancer Society at The Hammock Source corporate headquarters by the executive team.

In early 2015, The Hammock Source partnered with Making Strides, a division of the American Cancer Society, to donate a portion of all Original Pawleys Island furniture sales to cancer research. Pink HDPE lumber was brought in to create awareness chairs that were displayed at tradeshows throughout the year including High Point Market, Las Vegas Furniture Market and the Casual Market Chicago. Many retail partners displayed the pink furniture in their stores as well.

“When the endeavor first began, many couldn’t believe we would be donating a portion of all furniture sales,” said Reid Roney, executive vice president. “The response has been more than we hoped for.”

During the course of the year, The Hammock Source employees also got behind the endeavor, filling out cancer awareness donation ribbons. So many ribbons were donated that three walls at the plant were filled. These “Walls of Hope” were funded with $1, $5 and $100 donations. The employee donations were in addition to the donation made from furniture sales.

“The Hammock Source is committed to The American Cancer Society for the foreseeable future,” Perkins said. “We recognize the valuable work The American Cancer Society does and want to do our part in helping find a cure for cancer.”
