Outgo Personal Care Brand by McNett Raises $5K for National Breast Cancer Foundation
Outgo™, the personal care brand launched by McNett®, has raised $5000 for the National Breast Cancer Foundation through its Pink Microfiber Towel promotion.

McNett® is pleased to announce a $5000 donation to the National Breast Cancer Foundation (NBCF). By way of its personal care brand, Outgo™, McNett was able to raise the funds through a special fundraising promotion.

During the months of October and November, Outgo offered its Ultra Compact Microfiber Towel in a pink color with an embroidered breast cancer ribbon. The towels were sold exclusively in Army and Air Force Exchange Service (Exchange) Military Clothing (MC) stores and on the Outgo Facebook page. A portion of all proceeds was donated to NBCF for a grand total of $5000.

“McNett is committed to advancing NBCF’s mission of spreading knowledge and fostering hope in the fight against breast cancer,” said David Wiggs, marketing vice president. “It’s wonderful knowing that our $5000 donation will be used to provide free mammograms and diagnostic care services to underserved women in need.”

McNett’s corporate philanthropy efforts also include lending support to causes and events such as: Hunting with Heroes, Rivers of Recovery, the Oceans for Youth Foundation and the Take a Kid Outside Program. McNett also recently "adopted" a squad of troops deployed to Afghanistan, to which the company sends care packages and McNett gear monthly.

“It is important for us as a company to give back to those in need and to thank the men and women who sacrifice much to keep us safe, healthy and happy,” said Travis Huisman, chief operating officer at McNett.“We are honored to be able to lend our support to these worthy pursuits.”
