October is here, and that means it is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Here at Morguard, we are committed to raising the level of understanding for this disease and doing what we can to support the search for a cure. About 1 in 8 women will develop breast cancer in their lifetime and chances are many in the Morguard family have been or know somebody who has been affected by this devastating ailment.
We Choose Hope
Morguard is a place of support, and we want our employees, residents and the greater public to know that we stand with the members of our family who have been affected by Breast Cancer. That’s why during the month of October, as part of our “On Wednesdays We Wear Pink” campaign, Office Associates can wear pink and Maintenance Associates can wear pink ribbons or arm bands on Wednesdays in solidarity with our sisters who are fighting or have fought breast cancer.
In addition, employees who choose to wear pink should print one of our “I wear pink for…” desktop flyers here to show who you are wearing pink in support of, and to share your story. We encourage you to share pictures of your team with your pink and your desktop flyer on the Morguard Apartments Facebook page using the hashtag #MorguardCares or email them to Melissa Johnson at firstname.lastname@example.org!
Join the Fight
Here at Morguard, we encourage all of our employees to take steps to protect themselves from the risk of breast cancer. Early detection is the key to raising the chances of survival. Be sure to see your doctor on a regular basis and follow the recommended steps for detection and prevention. We also encourage donations during this Breast Cancer Awareness Month to the breast cancer charity of your choice!
Take the Next Step
We want to build a community of laughter, creativity and passion for our residents and our Morguard teams. If you or someone you know is a good fit for our company culture and are currently seeking a new role in apartment or property management, consider a career with Morguard. We are always looking for fun and talented people to be a part of our amazing team. Also, continue to follow our blog to find more opportunities for prizes and other Morguard Community happenings!
