IDC Raises More Than $10,000 For Charity

IDC-USA raised the money at its recent Product Forum & Supplier Trade Show May 18-21 in Indianapolis, where $9,000 of the total was raised at the fifth annual IDC Charitable Golf Outing.

Independent Distributors Cooperative (IDC) owner-distributors and preferred suppliers are driven by their passion for community and helping others. These values demand they go the extra mile each day with their customers and when there are opportunities to give back. This spirit of giving was present during the IDC Product Forum & Supplier Trade Show on May 18-21 in Indianapolis, where over $10,000 was raised. 

IDC-USA hosted the fifth annual IDC Charitable Trust Golf Outing, which raised $9,000. During the outing, participants had the opportunity to donate to a 50/50 raffle, which raised $415. When the winner of the raffle was to be announced during the welcome reception later that evening, attendees voted unanimously that the entire pot should be donated to the IDC Charitable Trust. The giving did not stop there. Every year, Bando USA, an IDC Platinum Preferred Supplier, sells an item during the IDC Trade Show to raise money for the IDC Charitable Trust. This year they sold co-logoed Bando/IDC-USA notepads and raised a total of $640. 

Keeping with this spirit of charity, Pooley Inc., an IDC Distributor, donated rubber bracelets to raise money for the Semper Fi Fund and St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. These bracelets were sold throughout the three day meeting. A total of $640 was raised - $330 for the Semper Fi Fund and $310 for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.

“We are very pleased that both IDC Distributors and Suppliers have created ways to raise money for charity. The independent spirit comes with a love of community and need to give back. We are truly blessed to have generous distributors and suppliers who want to have a positive and long term impact on our world,” stated Jack Bailey, IDC President and CEO.
