CTE Gives Back! May 2020
This month and nearly all of 2020 have certainly not been characterized as months of perfect 20/20 vision but instead have been time of blurred understanding, fear, anxiety, and great concern as we find ourselves in the almost unthinkable coronavirus pandemic. So many have struggled and suffered during this time. Therefore, we at Cable Tie Express thought it most fitting to make this month selection be a charity that is helping those in a most direct way with the impact of this pandemic. We are happy to direct our charity Beds Plus.
CTE Gives Back! April 2020
RILEY HOSPITAL FOR CHILDREN
THROUGH CARMEL DANCE MARATHON
Music was rockin’, feet were dancing, and the halls were alive with tunes and dancing during the Carmel Dance Marathon in Carmel, IN! All of this energy exploded for six hours as over 1000 students were dance-focused on raising money for the Riley Hospital for Children, a 501 (c ) public charity.
CTE Gives Back! March 2020
Cable Tie Express is happy to support the efforts of CYCLE FOR SURVIVAL with its monthly contributions through the CTE GIVES BACK program! We know that mile after mile of pedaling by family, friends, survivors, and thrivors of rare cancer patients DOES make a difference!
CTE Gives Back! - February 2020
With February branded as the “month of love” and Valentine’s Day its most celebrated day, CTE is happy to make its monthly charitable contribution to the Alzheimer’s Association. As Alzheimer’s is truly a disease that impacts particularly older people who perhaps have enjoyed many years of marriage with love and commitment, facing this disease together perhaps may truly be the hardest challenge a couple can face. The disease and its impact on the patient and family are horrible and the challenge presented to the caregiver (often the spouse) is heart wrenching as he/she watches his/her mate “die twice”. What a great and final gift of love that spouse gives during the course of the disease. And if it is a child (as is often the case) who is the caregiver and must provide that care, the love, patience, and resources required are immense!
CTE Gives Back! - December 2019
US Breast cancer statistics are alarming – About 12% - or 1 in 8 US women - will develop invasive breast cancer over the course of her lifetime. In 2019 alone, an estimated 268,600 new cases of invasive breast cancer have been diagnosed along with 62,930 new cases of non-invasive breast cancer.
Attacking more than the individual, breast cancer reaches the hearts of parents, children, siblings, extended family and friends. So it is no wonder that Cable Tie Express has received multiple requests from its family of customers, suppliers, and employees for assistance with various organizations dealing with this disease. Through the CTE Gives Back program, we are happy to support three organizations that help with women and their families dealing with breast cancer to not only survive but also to thrive during the days of battle and beyond.

As we focus on charities to benefit this month through the CTE GIVES BACK! Program, we are pleased to announce the recipients – Society of St. Vincent de Paul and The Fuller Center for Housing.

CTE Gives Back! - Sept. 2019
The Green Beret Foundation is an amazing veteran charity, providing direct and continuous support to the Green Beret community and its families. Special Forces Green Berets – “America’s Quiet Professionals” – are the one percent of the one percent continuing to fight the Global War on Terror in over 80 countries worldwide. These men are those most frequently exposed to combat, resulting in the highest casualty rate (60%) and make up 50% of those killed in action among U.S. Special Operations Forces.
CTE Gives Back! - Aug. 2019
The relaxing days of summer are winding down and soon school bells will be ringing for children across the country! This seems like the perfect month to help children start the school year on a most positive note with growing expectations and opportunities for success. Two charities stood out in our charity nominations that truly target helping children with support at the very local level and promoting achievement in school and life.
We are thrilled to donate a portion of the Cable Tie Express profits in August to By the Hand and Communities in Schools of South Central Texas. It is our hope that both charities put this money to good use, empowering children to work hard, stay in school, and maximize the quality of their lives as well as influencing others in a most positive way!
CTE Gives Back - July 2019
We were amazed at the overwhelming number of charities nominated by people within the CTE family of customers, suppliers, sales representatives and employees. Please feel free to continue to nominate charities that are important to you for future awards. All prior submissions are still being held and will be used when selecting charities in the future.
July Charities: The National Multiple Sclerosis Society and The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, in honor of two children of people within the CTE family.
