Every year, the Fairfield Medical Center Foundation receives a great amount of support from the local community in growing its Cancer Care Fund.
For the second year in a row, the Lancaster Eagle Gazette donated 20 percent of their advertising proceeds from last month's “Pink Edition."
“The pink newspaper commands attention and is extremely helpful each year in growing the fund and promoting awareness,” said Ricki Chenault, FMC Foundation executive director. “We can’t thank the Lancaster Eagle Gazette enough for their support.”
In addition, the Fairfield Career Center’s Student Leadership donated $612.76 from their most recent “Dress-Down Day” and the Granville Milling Company contributed $1,577 from the proceeds of their “Go Pink at the Mill” fundraiser and poker run.
“These funds benefit many patients within the community who need assistance,” said Chenault. “Each year, we receive many donations from people and organizations that are willing to help and we just want to show our appreciation to them.”
