A Global Leader in Pet Food Blends and Ingredients, Trouw Nutrition, Matched Its Employees’ Donations to Leaps of Love, a Local Charity Supporting Families Affected by Childhood Brain Tumors and Late-Effects of Childhood Cancer
Highland, IL, September 30, 2019 – Trouw Nutrition, a global leader in animal nutrition, donated $1,462 to Leaps of Love, a local charity supporting the families affected by childhood brain tumors and late-effects of childhood cancer.
With both Trouw Nutrition and Leaps of Love located in the small town of Highland, IL, Trouw Nutrition is eager to not only help another local organization, but also to support a charity with a unique mission.
“Leaps of Love looks way beyond the individual who has this disease and helps nourish the emotionally traumatized of all in the family who have to deal with the treatment and the recovery in working with this family member who has this disease,” said Chuck Hayden, Vice President of Trouw Nutrition’s Companion Animal Division. “Trouw’s heart and help goes out to all of the victims of cancer through this donation.”
Trouw Nutrition employees donated $731 of their own money, which Trouw Nutrition matched for a total donation of $1,462.
“As employees of Trouw Nutrition, we all know people who have had their health challenged by cancer,” said Hayden. “Certainly they are victims of a horrible disease, but they are not the only ones who are severely affected by the consequences of this disease.”
Leaps of Love Founder Traci Reichmann joined Trouw Nutrition at its main office on Friday, September 27, to accept the donation.

“Leaps of Love would like to thank everyone that participated in the awareness of childhood cancer,” said Reichmann. “With only 4% of cancer research funding going to pediatric cancer, we appreciate all the exposure we can get to raise awareness for the children of our future.”
