While participating in the HCC Goldman Sachs program, Patricia Vice met Janice Jucker, co-owner of Three Brothers Bakery who is a breast cancer survivor. Together they developed the “Shred for Komen” program. After it was designed, they signed an exclusive contract with the Susan G Komen Houston Affiliate. This program consists of placing pink shred bins at customer sites in recognition of the fight to detect and cure cancer. As part of the program, each client agrees to donate $5 per bin each time it is processed and Texas Security Shredding matches their donation of $5. This relationship has led to a sustainable program of giving to the Susan G. Komen Foundation. 75% of the monies raised by the Komen Houston Affiliate remain in the Houston community to help detect and cure cancer. Also, another 25 percent of more comes back to our community to support research.
