United Financial Credit Union raised over $4,430 for Making Strides and the American Cancer Society from staff and member donations during September and October.
“When one of our employees was recently diagnosed we wanted to do something to support her and others that have gone or are going through treatment, said Jessica Gwizdala, Director of Marketing. “We strive to be involved in our community and are appreciative for everyone that was able to make a donation.”
Funds raised through Making Strides Against Breast Cancer events help the American Cancer Society work to free the world from the pain and suffering of breast cancer. The Society is:
- Investing in innovative breast research to better understand, prevent, find, and treat the disease
- Providing free, comprehensive information and support to those touched by breast cancer in every community, when and where they need it.
- Helping people take steps to reduce their risk of breast cancer or find it early when it’s most treatable.
