To the American Cancer Society
Customer donations were gathered and doubled by The Gott Company, Fastop parent company, to expand support.
The Gott Company’s “Got To Give” program continues to provide funds for local organizations dedicated to strengthening the surrounding community. Recently, the company presented the American Cancer Society’s Senior Community Development Manager, Nancy Miller, with a check for $2,600 to support programs provided by the organization. Funds were gathered from contributions left at Fastop locations across Calvert and St. Mary’s counties by customers and later doubled by Fastop parent company, The Gott Company.
“We truly appreciate the Gott Company’s support of the American Cancer Society’s mission to save lives, celebrate lives, and lead the fight for a world without cancer,” said Miller when receiving the donation. “We are attacking cancer from every angle by providing free information, help, and support to those facing cancer by providing 24/7 free access to our National Cancer Information Center.
The organization also educates people about how to reduce their risk for cancer or detect it early when it’s easiest to treat, fund innovative cancer research that will help protect future generations, and fight back through public policy in partnership with the American Cancer Society Cancer Action Network, the Society’s nonpartisan advocacy affiliate. Those interested in further supporting the organization or learning more about its services can call 1-800-ACS-2345 or visit the American Cancer Society’s website, www.cancer.org.
Already, this year, Fastop stores have selected the next organization to support through its “Got to Give” program, now collecting funds for The Arc Southern Maryland. Customers who stop into the stores to donate are encouraged to join in the online conversation by using the hashtag #GOTToGive.
