HCEC Gives Back to the Community
February 24, 2014
HOUSTON, February 24, 2014 – Harris County Emergency Corps (HCEC) recently presented a $2,000 check to The Rose, a non-profit breast cancer organization. HCEC staff members created and sold t-shirts for Breast Cancer Awareness to raise these funds.
Each year, HCEC goes pink for breast cancer awareness in a big way – The HCEC website goes pink, the Facebook page goes pink, the staff name badges go pink, and everyone wears their pink HCEC shirt on Fridays during the month of October. The t-shirts were sold for $10 and many staff members purchased shirts for a friend who is fighting breast cancer or family members who want to join in on the cause.
“We really wanted our fundraising dollars to benefit women locally,” said Jeremy Hyde, CEO of Harris County Emergency Corps. “The Rose is a nonprofit organization based in Houston and was a perfect fit for our donations.”
The Rose provides screening, diagnostics and treatment services to any woman regardless of her ability to pay. In 2013 The Rose served close to 35,000 patients in the Houston area and HCEC is proud to help an organization provide better access to care for members of our community.
