Reciprocity Road, an industry buying group with a philanthropic focus, has demonstrated its ongoing commitment to the Promotional Professionals Education Foundation by presenting it with a $7,500 check during Reciprocity Road’s reception on Tuesday evening at The PPAI Expo in Las Vegas. The group has been an avid supporter of PPEF for the past four years.
“One of our pillars is to continue to support PPEF through the rebate generated from our suppliers,” says the group’s executive director, Perry Wehrle, MAS. “We reserve 1.5 percent from the collective rebates, which is utilized for the support of PPEF, as well as other causes.”
In addition to the PPEF donation, at the reception Reciprocity Road partners also donated $5,000 to The Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. Earlier in the week, it presented an $8,000 donation to RR member Rod Brown, CAS, recipient of the PPAI 2020 H. Ted Olson Humanitarian Award, to support his philanthropic efforts in Africa and Mexico. The check was presented to Brown during his award acceptance at the PPAI Chair’s Leadership Dinner on Monday evening.
