Longaberger Honored for Breast Cancer Research

The American Cancer Society's Corporate Impact Awards were presented Monday to The Longaberger Company of Newark and 16 additional companies during the society's Annual Meeting in New York City. The awards recognize businesses' financial and in-kind contributions of at least $1 million during the previous calendar year. These donations were raised through a variety of channels and represent these companies' commitment to the Society's global fight to eliminate cancer as a major health problem.

"These companies and their many employees have proven that their hearts are compassionate and benevolent. The society is appreciative of these companies that so generously give of their resources and empower their employees to become personally involved with our mission of saving lives," said John R. Seffrin, Ph.D., chief executive officer, American Cancer Society. "The record number of businesses receiving the Society's Corporate Impact Awards this year reflects the greatness of the human spirit."
