Six months worth of scrap metal has made a big dent in the fundraising efforts of the Northern Cancer Foundation.
Carriere Industrial Supply has been hard at work this past month removing six months of scrap from their yard to make a donation of $40,000 to the NCFfor this year’s SCRAP Cancer Campaign.
“Year after year, Carriere Industrial Supply has supported the Northern Cancer Foundation with their incredible donations of scrap metal,” said Tannys Laughren, executive director of the Northern Cancer Foundation. “We can’t thank them enough for their continued support, especially this year.”
Over the past seven years, Carriere Industrial Supply has donated more than $200,000 in scrap metal to the SCRAP Cancer Campaign.
“This donation will go a long way in supporting cancer patients and their families here in Northeastern Ontario,” said Anthony Keating, president and CDO of Foundations and Volunteer Groups at HSN.
During the past 10 years, the Northern Cancer Foundation and all of its community partners have raised more than $395,000 through the Scrap Cancer campaign, and 100 per cent of the proceeds have been donated to the Northern Cancer Foundation to support cancer care, research and equipment purchases at the local level.
