Matching Customers’ Donations Dollar for Dollar, Borden Waste-Away Service, Inc. Donates Entire Amount to Goshen Hospital’s Cancer Research Fund.
Elkhart-Goshen, IN - In 2011 Elkhart-based Borden Waste-Away pioneered an exclusive program where interested customers could add $1.00 to their monthly bill as adonation for cancer research. Each year Borden matches these donations dollar for dollar and the entire amount is donated to Goshen Hospital to support forty-five active clinical trials, spanning breast, lung, colorectal, lymphoma, esophageal, head & neck, prostate, melanoma, multiple myeloma, pancreatic, and other cancers. Other programs include preclinical studies for early detection, cancer vaccinations and improved radiation oncology verification systems, as well as The Tissue Bank.
The donations from 2016 totaled an astonishing $22,199.46, for a 6-year total of $141,493.70.
“The sheer number of customers coming forward to donate to such a worthy cause reminds us each year why we started this program”, relates Chris Himes, President of Borden Waste-Away. “It’s awe-inspiring and humbling to be part of an integral area of successful research.”
