Sioux City’s Fashion Floors Carpet One presented a check in the amount of $2851 to officials at the June E Nylen Cancer Center onTuesday, December 31. The donation represents ten percent of all product sold in the month of October.
“We started this promotion in 2008 when my wife, Helen, was a seven-year cancer survivor,” said owner John Hall. “We wanted to give back for the care we received when she received treatment at the Cancer Center.” Hall’s wife passed away in July, 2009.
“This is the seventh year of the promotion which has raised over $15,000. The Cancer Center is so appreciative of community support like this,” said Pat Hubbard, Director of Fund Development at the Cancer Center. “The gift from Fashion Floors Carpet One and their customers is a blessing and will allow us to assist patients with the resources and services they need.”
The Cancer Center uses charitable donations to fund programs like patient assistance, transportation assistance, resource room educational materials and wigs, and community prevention programs like SOS: Serving our Sisters free mammogram program.
