Aeroflow Healthcare has raised over $6,100.00 for Mission Foundation in support of Mission Children’s Hospital, and continues to raise more every week.
In order to further their support of local businesses and the Western North Carolina community, Aeroflow Healthcare has implemented fundraising initiatives to assist Mission Children’s Hospital and their goal of providing care to all children, regardless of their family’s ability to pay.
Aeroflow Healthcare, an Asheville based durable medical equipment supplier, has created outlets for each employee to become involved in the company’s fundraising efforts. From weekly donation collections to quarterly events, Aeroflow intends to make philanthropy a core value for the company as a whole, starting with each individual.
“Patient care has always been Aeroflow’s number one priority, we want to ensure that the people of Western North Carolina and beyond are receiving the care they need. By supporting Mission Children’s Hospital, we can help make sure more patients receive the care and treatment they need to be healthy,” said Casey Hite, CEO of Aeroflow Healthcare.
Since the start of July, Aeroflow has made each Friday “Blue Jean Friday”, where employees can wear casual clothing and blue jeans at the cost of $1.00. While the monetary amount to each individual is small, the combined collection for the company adds up every week. 100% of the funds raised through “Blue Jean Friday” goes to Mission Foundation in support of Mission Children’s Hospital.
In addition to their weekly collections, Aeroflow Healthcare has created quarterly events to show their appreciation to their employees, and to raise funds for Mission Children’s Hospital. For this quarter, Aeroflow hosted a company picnic, complete with catered food from local restaurants, an ice cream truck on location, raffle giveaway, and a dunking booth for entertainment. Executives, managers, and team leaders signed up to be the dunking booth victims as their co-workers tested their throwing arms. Balls could be purchased at $2.00 for one or $5.00 for three. Through the company picnic alone, Aeroflow raised $448.00 for Mission Children’s Hospital.
Aeroflow intends to use the combined efforts of its employees and corporate donations to assist Mission Hospitals and the work they are doing for patients across Western North Carolina.
