Companies team up against breast cancer
PANAMA CITY, FL — In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, sister companies Disaster Response Team and Carpet Care Specialist of Bay County, FL, kicked off a month of fundraisers to raise money and awareness and educate the public, according to a press release.
The companies, who frequently do fundraising in the area, hosted several fundraisers this October, including “Slim Your Boss,” “Cleaning for a Cause,” a raffle and an awareness video.
The video, which was inspired by a Disaster Response team member’s breast cancer survival, features employees from both companies dancing to Taylor Swift’s “Shake It Off.”
“Our goal was to create a positive message of health and solidarity that our employees and people would share through social media,” Crystal Martinez, director of sales and marketing for the companies, said in the release. “We also wanted to support Breast Cancer Awareness because it makes such a difference for breast cancer survivors in a way that is immediately meaningful to our customers and employees. I’m happy to say, I think we’ve succeeded.”
