Employees of PacTec, Inc. of Clinton, LA continued their annual charitable fundraising efforts for 2016 by making a $1,500 donation to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. Funds were raised in $2 increments in exchange for wearing blue jeans on dedicated days. PacTec, Inc. then matched dollar-for-dollar what employees contributed, empowering their team to make a bigger difference. The staff voted for St. Jude as their charity this year due to the impact it has on young children nationwide. “St. Jude means a great deal to us, especially because many of us know local families who have benefitted from the services,” says Trey Castleberry, Marketing Director at PacTec, Inc.
The mission of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is to advance cures and means of prevention, for pediatric catastrophic diseases through research and treatment. Consistent with the vision of founder Danny Thomas, no child is denied treatment based on race, religion or a family's ability to pay. Unlike any other hospital, the majority of St. Jude funding comes from individual contributions. And thanks to generous donors, families never receive a bill from St. Jude.
