Accurate employees in our Otsego office came together and raised $600 in support of the ALS Association. These funds were raised by selling “jean tickets” in our AHC Make a Difference Day for ALS. These tickets exempts an employee from the dress policy for a day so they can wear jeans on any day of their own choosing. Employees were allowed to purchase as many tickets as they desired and all of the funds raised were sent to the ALS Association. Overall, we had 30 employees donate a total of $620 for the ALS Association.
Accurate Employees were excited to participate. Here are some examples of what Accurate people said about their participation:
Lauren: “I was happy to donate for ALS make a difference day! After reading about ALS, the quick progression of the disease and lack of cure available made it an easy decision. If my contribution could be a small part towards a much bigger purpose, I’m all for it!
Peggy: “My name is Peg and I am a member of the billing team at AHC. I have been here 4 years now. Recently we started a fundraiser for ALS at Accurate. I chose to donate because I have seen what ALS can do to a person. It is a tough, challenging disease. The disease targets the person who has it and effects the people around them in their support system. I hope that by donating, more research can be done to help the fight against this disease. The plus side to our fund raiser is I get to wear jeans on some extra days. I love that also.
Sheila: “Gratitude for the health that my family and I have been given and the hope that small contribution can help bring relief for someone else not so fortunate.”
Ashley: “I donated because I have a soft spot in my heart for ALS patients. I took care of them while working downtown at HCMC when I floated around Units.”
Brenda: “Why do I donate to help Accurate raise money for ALS? The real reason is just to be kind and help others. Many people are affected with this strange disease and we really need society to step up and help each other out.”
Nichole: “I chose to donate to become a small part in the research efforts being made to find a cure for ALS. I hope, someday, in my lifetime we are able to find a cure for this debilitating disease.”
Accurate employees are kind, caring and giving people. Thank you to all who participated and for helping those facing this difficult and challenging disease!
