Brady, a full-line janitorial supply, equipment and foodservice distributor, which announced its new charitable giving campaign “Brady Shines” as part of its 70th Anniversary celebration in 2017, announced the beneficiaries from its second grant cycle December 1 – February 28.  More than 30 applications from all Brady territories were submitted applying for funds to benefit education- and youth-based organizations.

“Brady is dedicating $20,000 total per cycle to support non-profits focused on education, youth programs and more,” said Travis Brady, President and CEO.  “We formed an internal committee to review all submissions and determine the distribution of funds based on a variety of factors.  The committee chose to focus on groups who are promoting healthy and active lifestyles with our youth for the Spring cycle. We are so proud to be supporting these tremendous organizations.”
