For the ninth consecutive year, EMCOR Group, Inc., a construction company, has announced that thousands of its employees throughout the U.S. will commemorate Breast Cancer Awareness Month in October by wearing EMCOR pink hard hats in support of the company's "Protect Yourself. Get Screened Today." campaign.
In three cities, employees and clients committed themselves to wearing EMCOR pink hard hats and form Human Pink Ribbons, to promote awareness for the importance of breast cancer screening.
EMCOR/Shambaugh & Son and Valley Milk, LLC; Turlock, Calif.:
Employees from EMCOR/Shambaugh & Son, L.P., along with those of its client Valley Milk, LLC, the entire project work force, and many others, including Emanuel Cancer Center representatives, and the Mayor of Turlock, Calif., donned EMCOR pink hard hats and assembled to form EMCOR's signature giant human pink hard hat Ribbon Sept. 27, at Valley Milk's new plant construction site in Turlock, Calif.
A $40,000 check, from individual donations and contributions, was presented by EMCOR/Shambaugh & Son and Valley Milk to Emanuel Cancer Center. Michael Iltis, executive director of Emanuel Cancer Center, accepted the check, and also participated and spoke at the event.
Paul Meyers, Jr., CEO, Shambaugh & Son, presented a pink hard hat event plaque to Patti Smith, CEO, Valley Milk, LLC, and Turlock Mayor Gary Soiseth, each of whom spoke passionately in support of breast cancer awareness.
“This is EMCOR's 9th consecutive year of spearheading the national pink hard hat initiative. Over the years people have come forward to say they believe this unique way of communicating the importance of breast cancer awareness and screening has had a positive impact on their own lives or that of a loved one,” said Meyers. “Many of our employees wear hard hats on a daily basis for personal protection, and we're proud of their commitment to wear an EMCOR/Shambaugh pink hard hat in October to raise awareness for breast cancer, reminding women and men they can help protect themselves by getting screened.”
“Valley Milk is honored to be selected to join EMCOR for this national pink hard hat event,” said Smith. “Today is not about Valley Milk and dairy processing, but is about community. As a new employer in the community we take this opportunity to give back and share in the fight for a cure, treatment, and awareness of cancer. It is coming together for a common cause and being strong together.”
