The Loss Prevention Foundation (LPF) and the National Retail Federation (NRF) successfully partnered to raise money for the Loss Prevention Benevolent Fund. The fundraiser culminated in a drawing for valuable prizes during this year’s NRF Protect Conference in Philadelphia.
The LPBF provides financial assistance to Loss Prevention professionals and their families in times of need.
The NRF graciously donated $3,000 to the fund, through a mobile app survey program, which donated $1 for every rating submitted. Along with this, and $1,300 raised through raffle ticket purchases, a total of $4,300 was raised for the charity.
“We are very appreciative of the hosting support and monetary donation provided by the NRF. As a result of this newly formed partnership, we will be able to assist many more loss prevention professionals and their families in the time of need,” explains Chris Duke LPC, Chairman of the LPBF.
“NRF Protect is where we go to learn, share best practices and raise the bar for our profession. We all agree that LP is a serious business; we are pleased to have a strategic alliance with the LPF LPBF to raise financial support for families of LP professionals who are injured as a result of protecting their company’s people, assets and brand,” said Robert Moraca, Vice President of Loss Prevention for the National Retail Federation.
“We are very grateful for the support given by the NRF Protect at this year’s conference. This support is critical to our overall mission of raising the awareness level for LPBF and its unfortunate need in our profession,” said Gene Smith, President of LPF.
We give a special thanks to the entire NRF team who realized the importance of this charity and allowed us to hold the fundraiser.
