Proforma (PPAI 196835, D13) – the No. 5 distributor in the 2023 PPAI 100 ranking – brought attendees of its recent Women’s Session together for a philanthropic event benefiting The Howard Phillips Center for Children and Families, a renowned charitable institution dedicated to improving the lives of vulnerable children and families in need.

The distributor’s Women’s Session event focused on personal inspiration, practical application and leadership development for women at all career levels and stages of personal growth.

Together with its supplier partners, the women of Proforma assembled 180 backpacks filled with more than 5,100 school supplies. The combined efforts of Proforma and its partners resulted in a contribution worth nearly $10,000, which will positively impact the lives of countless children.

“This event could not be possible without the collaboration of everyone involved, and we are so grateful for the strong network we have cultivated,” says Michelle Dalton, VP of supplier relations at Proforma. “As a woman-owned business, Proforma truly understands and appreciates the value women in the workplace provide, and it’s something we celebrate.”
