Proceeds will be Donated to the Child & Family Center Foundation, Tierra Del Sol Foundation, and Santa Clarita Valley Food Pantry
PDC, a global leader of innovative identification solutions, will host the 5th Annual “Brady Walk for Community” on July 24, 2015 at its Valencia, CA location. The “Brady Walk for Community” is a yearly employee fundraiser held by the Brady Corporation, PDC’s parent company, which raises money for charities and gathers donations for food banks.
PDC employees will walk up to five laps to raise money and Brady Corporation will match 20% of the total funds raised by each employee plus $2 for every food item participants donate. The food drive will benefit the Santa Clarita Valley Food Pantry. All monetary proceeds will be equally split among two local non-profit organizations: the Tierra Del Sol Foundation and the Child & Family Center Foundation.
“PDC is delighted to be included in the ‘Brady Walk for Community’ and to be a part of the Brady Corporation, which is committed to giving back to the communities where its businesses operate,” said Robert Case, President of PDC. “We want to see the amazing work of Tierra del Sol, the Child and Family Center, and the SCV Food Pantry furthered to positively impact the people of Santa Clarita.”
Tierra del Sol enables individuals with disabilities to establish meaningful and productive lives and to contribute to the economic, cultural and civic vitality of their communities through gainful employment. For more than twenty years, PDC has employed clients of Tierra Del Sol and was the first business in the city of Santa Clarita to do so. PDC has also partnered with the Child & Family Center since 2012 by participating in the annual “Adopt-A-Family” and teen gift card holiday giving program, which provides clothing, gift cards, and toys, to local families in need. The Child & Family Center helps build a healthy Santa Clarita Valley by providing mental health, behavioral and education services to children, adults and families in a safe and nurturing environment.
Local businesses have also joined in with additional sponsorship support for the event, including: Café Rio, Chick-fil-A, In-N-Out Burger, Jimmy John’s, Lady Di’s Cookies, Trader Joe’s and Whole Foods Market.
