FORT MYERS, Fla. – August 25, 2017 – Over 40 employees from 21st Century Oncology’s finance department hosted a team-building event this week the culmination of which included the “construction” of stuffed animals for local children affected by disaster. A representative from Lee County Sheriff’s Office was on site to receive the teddy bears, which officers will provide to local children to comfort them after a traumatic event.
“Our employees wanted to give back to the community and support our first responders,” says Steve Graham, 21st Century Oncology’s Chief Accounting Officer. “We are proud of our team and hope this small gesture will make an impact on children when they need it most.”
The teddy bears will be used in various situations where children could need emotional support, including domestic disputes, crime scenes where children are innocent bystanders and other disaster situations, as well as to disadvantaged children in general policing situations where no crime is involved.
