SAF, a metals distributor, fabricator, and finisher, is making a donation of $15,000 to the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF). The contribution follows a donation to JDRF in 2021, commemorating SAF’s 75th anniversary in business. The gift will correspond with SAF’s corporate sponsorship for the JDRF Hope Gala in Atlanta on May 7, 2022.
JDRF strives to promote advocacy, fund research, and provide a support network for those affected by type 1 diabetes (T1D). According to an SAF press release, the $15,000 donation will help fund critical research and bring life-changing treatments to millions living with T1D.
“Type 1 diabetes is a cause that is near and dear to the hearts of the SAF family,” said Penn McClatchey, CEO at SAF. “Anything we can do to drive this mission forward means a lot to us. We are proud to be a sponsor for JDRF’s annual gala and hope our donation will help raise awareness and make a difference in the worldwide effort to find a cure to end type 1 diabetes.”
SAF’s continued support for JDRF is marked by numerous donations throughout the company’s history.
