$150,000 has been pledged to supporting men's and women's health initiatives
TORONTO, Oct. 3, 2017 /CNW/ -- This Fall, Moores Clothing for Men, a subsidiary of Tailored Brands, Inc. (NYSE:TLRD), is joining the fight against cancer. Knowing that cancer affects our customers, our employees and their families, we are focused on supporting the Movember Foundation and the Canadian Cancer Society to promote awareness and raise funds for both men's and women's health and cancer research.
Moores has committed to donating $100,000 to the Movember Foundation. Movember is a global organization that helps men live happier, healthier, longer lives by funding men's health projects focusing on prostate and testicular cancer, mental health and suicide prevention. In addition to the financial support for the charity, Moores is offering customers a special Movember deal starting November through December. Customers who sign up on Movember.com will receive a coupon for a free custom shirt with the purchase of a custom suit. Show your personal Movember Mo Space page or email from Movember.com in-store to receive the offer.
"The Movember Foundation's corporate partners have played an extraordinary role in a mission that has helped the Foundation fund more than 1,200 men's health projects in 21 countries," says Ken Aucoin, Country Director, the Movember Foundation. "Our partnership with Moores will allow us to expand our brand awareness and reach new audiences – all in an effort to help men live happier, healthier, longer lives."
In continuing to raise awareness for cancer research, Moores is participating in October's National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. We will be contributing $50,000 to the Canadian Cancer Society in support of their efforts. Funds will go towards high-quality breast cancer research, educating women about early detection and providing information and support services to those living with the disease.
"This October, we are pleased to partner with Moores in the fight against breast cancer," says Carly Schur, National Director of Corporate Programs for the Canadian Cancer Society. "With their support, we can take action against a disease that touches far too many lives."
"I am proud that Moores has pledged to support such worthy organizations," said Richard Bull, Vice President of Merchandising at Moores Clothing for Men. "It is important to our employees and company culture to get involved in our communities and to help these organizations with their efforts in the fight against cancer."
