For the last 4 years, Contec, Inc. has partnered with Children’s Cancer Partners of the Carolinas. Not only does Contec, Inc. support our various fundraising events, they are a major donor to our Single Moms Program. Our Single Moms Program designates money towards single moms who must care for their child with cancer and their siblings. When a child is diagnosed with cancer, the entire family, no matter the structure, is impacted. Majority of families with dual incomes become a single income family. Imagine being a single mother with only one income prior to your child’s diagnosis. Now imagine finding childcare for their sibling and paying for these expenses. This is where Children’s Cancer Partners and the Single Moms Programs comes into action. Thanks to partners such as Contec, Inc., this pilot program is possible.
“Since our founding, we have been committed to doing the right thing, to have respect for others. Community is one of our key pillars for our Corporate Social Responsibilities programs,” states Jack McBride, CEO of Contec, Inc. “Making sure children have access to healthcare and supporting their families is important to us at Contec, so our partnership with Children’s Cancer Partners just makes sense. Their mission directly aligns with our values within our community. We couldn’t be more proud to support children in our community, especially those who are going through a difficult journey.”
We are grateful for Contec, Inc.’s continued partnership. Over 1,800 Carolina children battling cancer have been impacted by their generosity and value of community. We look forward to many more years of partnership with this passionate and caring company.
