Cutco is so excited to be partnering with the Alzhiemer’s Association® in June for Alzheimer’s & Brain Awareness Month. Along with raising awareness about the Association’s cause, we’re offering specially-engraved, limited-edition purple products through June 30, 2019.
As part of the initiative, 10 percent of every Cutco purple product purchase will go to the Alzheimer’s Association, in support of local chapters based on purchase location, with a minimum guaranteed total donation of $50,000. The effort will help the Association provide education and support to millions of people who face dementia every day, while advancing critical research toward methods of treatment, prevention and, ultimately, a cure.
This disease hits close to home for Cutco. Hear our President and CEO Jim Stitt Jr., explain why.
Currently, 5.8 million Americans are living with Alzheimer’s. By 2050, this number is projected to rise to nearly 14 million. The Alzheimer’s Association works on a national and local level to provide care and support for all those affected by the disease and other dementia. The Association is also the leading voice for Alzheimer's disease advocacy, fighting for critical Alzheimer’s research and care initiatives at the state and federal level.
The purple Cutco products being offered include a Purple Spatula Spreader with a Sheath, Purple Super Shears, a Purple Cutting Board and a 2-piece Purple Shear Favorites set, which includes the Spatula Spreader with Sheath and Super Shears.
The products are available on our website, at the Cutco/KA-BAR Visitors Center on East State Street in Olean and at our retail locations throughout the country.
The Alzheimer's Association is the leading voluntary health organization in Alzheimer’s care, support and research. Our mission is to eliminate Alzheimer's disease through the advancement of research; to provide and enhance care and support for all affected; and to reduce the risk of dementia through the promotion of brain health.
