Pink terminal blocks raise money in the fight against breast cancer

November 11, 2014 -  In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Phoenix Contact introduced a special pink version of its most popular product, the UT4 terminal block, which helped to raise more than $1,430 for the Susan G. Komen organization.

At the recent Solar Power International trade show, held October 17-20 in Las Vegas, Phoenix Contact asked visitors to its booth to pledge a donation to a breast cancer awareness charity. In return for the pledge, donors could put their name or the name of an honoree on a pink terminal block using one of Phoenix Contact’s marker labels. Each terminal block was then placed onto the “Rails of Hope” DIN rail display. Two-hundred eighty-six people pledged to donate, and Phoenix Contact donated $5 for every pledge received at the show.

Phoenix Contact also took part in Lee National Denim Day on October 10. Employees paid $5 to participate in a casual dress day, raising a total of $1,100 for the American Cancer Society’s breast cancer research programs. Participating employees received a pin-on version of the pink terminal block as a thank-you gift.

“We’re proud of our employees and customers who participated in Rails of Hope,” said Jack Nehlig, President of Phoenix Contact USA. “Every dollar makes a difference. Through fundraising campaigns like the Lee National Denim Day and our own Rails of Hope, we are getting closer to a cure for breast cancer.”
