$3,600 Raised to Support Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Breast Cancer Support - Pink Ribbon Girls

We would like to thank our customers, as we were able to do it again! Every October, a percentage of all our sales are donated to the Pink Ribbon Girls. This past year we were able to write a check for $3,600.00. In addition to the percentage of sales, we also have several loyal customers who donate to the organization as well.

What Is Pink Ribbon Girls? 

Pink Ribbon Girls is a grassroots 501(c)(3) organization whose mission is to help ease the minds of individuals and families affected by breast cancer by providing direct services and support. They have two separate programs, Simply Fight! And NO Age NO Stage. Both of these programs are in the Cincinnati and Dayton metro areas. A few ways they assist the affected families is by providing meals, transportation, housecleaning, and peer support.

Every dollar raised through this campaign goes towards providing free direct services such as meals, housekeeping, and transportation to women going through breast cancer treatment right here in Southwest Ohio. With their commitment, we can ensure that No One Travels This Road Alone!”

 

Thanks to Our Amazing Customers

“It’s really exciting to be able to give back to our community. I am proud that so many of our customers wanted to be a part of this fundraiser.” said Jason Herrmann, the Service Manager of Herrmann Services. The first year, Herrmann Services was able to donate $2,500 to the Pink RIbbon Girls and the contributions have only increased since then. This year, our goal is to donate more than $3,600!

Thank you to all of our wonderful customers for teaming up with Herrmann Services in fighting for a breast cancer cure. Without you, this campaign would not be a success!

Herrmann Services Customers Fight for a Cure

Hermman Services and our customers help raise money for Pink Ribbon Girls of Cincinnati. For the second year in a row, Herrmann Services teamed up with our customers to support the Pink Ribbon Girls of Cincinnati in their fight for a breast cancer cure.

And for the second year in a row, we were extremely pleased with the amazing support that our Breast Cancer Awareness Program raised.

Our Customers Helped Us Beat our Goal 

For every Cincinnati area customer who agreed to host a breast cancer awareness yard sign during the month of October, Herrmann Services donated $10 to Pink Ribbon Girls of Cincinnati. Our goal was to have 250 signs placed around town.

Not only did we surpass our original goal, we also received additional donations from employees and customers. This allowed us to donate $3,305.00 to this impactful organization.

Why Herrmann Services Chose Pink Ribbon Girls

“We are excited to team up for a second year with the Pink Ribbon Girls. We wanted to do some fundraising that our customers could get involved with, but they didn’t have to worry about raising the money themselves.

Almost everyone has been touched in some way by breast cancer, so we felt this would be a great cause to help within our community,” according to Jason Herrmann, Service Manager at Herrmann Services.

When asked “Why Pink Ribbon Girls”, Kris Herrmann-Olding, Finance Manager at Herrmann Services answered, “We selected Pink Ribbon Girls to be the benefactors because they are a local organization that helps people suffering from breast cancer with their daily needs.

Research funding is important, but we wanted to help in a way that touched our community immediately.”

Pink Ribbon Girls of Cincinnati Shares Appreciation 

Tracie Metzger, founder/director of Pink Ribbon Girls, expresses her appreciation by saying, “Pink Ribbon Girls is honored to have such great local support from Herrmann Services for the second year in a row.

October is a month to create awareness about breast cancer and having the ability to impact the lives of women in your neighborhood makes a big difference in the fight against breast cancer! Pink Ribbon Girls provides personalized support to young women and their families throughout all phases of the breast cancer journey.

We accomplish this through education, outreach and one-on-one support. Our vision is that no one travels this road alone.”

Thank you to all of our wonderful customers for teaming up with Herrmann Services in fighting for a breast cancer cure. Without you, this campaign would not be a success!
