Wheatland Tube Helps in the Fight Against Cancer

The American Cancer Society has been saving lives for more than 100 years. Today, the Chicago Electrical Industry (CEI) is helping to save more than 400 lives a day that would have otherwise been lost to cancer. We won't stop until we finish the fight. Our goal across the electrical industry is to raise $1million dollars. 

To date, the Chicago Electrical Industry (CEI) has collectively raised $200,000. Team Wheatland has raised and donated more than $6,000 towards the cause and we participated in the Walk & Roll Event on Saturday, April 25, 2015. We battled the cold and rain, but we made it to the finish line!

Thank you to all that donated and participated in this event, including the Wheatland sales and customer service teams!

Two of our own employees, Camille Grayson and Michael Strawn, attended the event, helping give these children a holiday season to remember. Camille, our marketing manager at corporate HQ, said this was the best event she’s volunteered for all year. “Just seeing the smiles on the children’s faces anticipating Santa and getting a gift was great.”
