All employees who have donated $10 or more to support the cause will be given a custom-printed pink t-shirt with NEA’s logo and slogan: “With Team NEA, No One Fights Alone”. They can then have the privilege of pairing up the pink t-shirt with a “good” pair of jeans to wear on Dress Down Fridays during each Friday in the month of October. So far, NEA has raised over $740 from the employees, with 80% voluntary participation!
Additionally, company owners Henry and Linda Laughlin will match every dollar raised by employees, up to $1,000.
All donations will be designated for MBCC’s Support Service Fund. Maine Breast Cancer Coalition is grateful to NEA’s generous employees and owners.
You can read more about about “Paws for the Cause” and see photos from the event on the Medomak Valley All-Sports Boosters Facebook page.
All of us at Maine Breast Cancer Coalition want to thank all the athletes, their parents, coaches, the booster organizers and all the other volunteers who made this event possible!

During this past October, Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Maine Staffing Group invited their flaggers in Maine and New Hampshire to participate in a Pink Hard Hat fundraising campaign. All proceeds from the campaign were matched by Project Flagging and were donated to the Maine Breast Cancer Coalition in Sharon’s name. All flaggers received a pink hard hat to wear for the month of October to show their support.
Maine Breast Cancer Coalition is grateful for the generosity of Maine Staffing Group and all of the flaggers who took part in the Project Flagging Pink Hard Hat campaign. Our hearts go out to Sharon Burns’s family and friends. We are honored to accept the $5,000 donation to our Support Service Fund in Sharon's name.
