Brinkmann Constructors’ annual employee charity initiative, BECAUSE (Brinkmann Employees Care About United Service Efforts), has raised $31,000 for The December 5th Fund, an organization whose mission is to give families dealing with cancer one great day without worry to create memories that last a lifetime, long after the burden of cancer is gone.
Members of the BECAUSE committee presented a check this week to Tom Wiley, Founder of The December 5th Fund. The donation will be utilized to plan out a day of small memorable moments while a team of volunteers takes care of household burdens and chores to create a lasting memory for a family with cancer. “Thank you Brinkmann Constructors for making OUR day and all the future days for the families we serve,” said Wiley.
“The December 5th Fund is an amazing organization that does so much to help families dealing with the stress of a loved one with cancer,” says Matt Funk, BECAUSE team member and Director of Preconstruction at Brinkmann Constructors, “We are proud of what our employees have done to benefit The December 5th Fund.”
