Giving back to the community. It is a part of our culture at Precision and it shows through the work that our employees do to give back.
Rob Shrieves, one of our Superheroes, is working with a Masonic Youth Organization to collect Band-Aids for Noah’s Bandage Project. The group has a ritual competition for the DeMolay Degree in Kansas this June. Their State Master Councilor has kicked off efforts to get all of the Band-Aids they can to take with them.
The mission of Noah’s Bandage Project is to end childhood cancer through awareness, support and the gift of hope. They do this through the collection of cool, fun bandages for kids who need them and raising money for pediatric cancer research. Noah was 6 years old when he was diagnosed with Ewing’s Sarcoma. Early in his cancer treatments, he decided brown bandages were boring and that kids needed cool and fun ones. He started collecting bandages for his fellow patients. Shortly after his treatment plan ended he contracted AML Leukemia. He passed away on June 30, 2015. The bandages collected are sent to hospitals, schools and other organizations and nonprofits all over the world. You can learn more about the charity at http://www.noahsbandageproject.com.
If you have bandages you would like to donate for Rob and his group to take with them, please feel free to give them to your technician or drop them off at our office. We are happy to pass them along!
