Heidelberg USA Donates Printed Materials to Make-A-Wish Foundation
Press release from the issuing company
Kennesaw, Ga., November 25, 2002 -- Heidelberg USA announced today that it continues to support the Make-A-Wish Foundation of Northern Illinois and its mission to enhance children’s lives by donating thousands of dollars of materials printed on Heidelberg equipment.
"We're very grateful that Heidelberg continues to support our efforts," said Linda Parck, director of donor relations for Make-A-Wish. "Their donation enables us to concentrate on the children - our main focus - and not on obtaining materials to administer our program."
Heidelberg, a partner of Make-A-Wish for the last 12 years, has printed a variety of items for the foundation, including corporate brochures, posters, donor material and volunteer recruitment materials. Heidelberg printed a year’s supply of the materials at the recent Graph Expo and Converting Expo show in Chicago.
The Make-A-Wish Foundation‚ of Northern Illinois grants the wishes of children with life-threatening illnesses to enrich the human experience with hope, strength and joy. Make-A-Wish strives to provide the wish child and family with special memories of joy and laughter at a stressful time in their lives.
"Heidelberg understands the serious work the Make-A-Wish Foundation does," said Niels Winther, president and CEO of Heidelberg USA. "We are pleased to represent the print media industry in this endeavor by donating our time, materials and talent."
