News Release, The Gott Company
Customer donations were gathered and doubled by The Gott Company, Fastop parent company, to expand support.
Prince Frederick, MD, Wednesday, February 6th – 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.
The Southern Maryland Chronicle is a local, small business entrusted to provide factual, unbiased reporting to the Southern Maryland Community. While we look to local businesses for advertising, we hope to keep that cost as low as possible in order to attract even the smallest of local businesses and help them get out to the public. We must also be able to pay employees(part-time and full-time), along with equipment, and website related things. We never want to make the Chronicle a “pay-wall” style news site.
To that end, we are looking to the community to offer donations. Whether it’s a one-time donation or you set up a reoccurring monthly donation. It is all appreciated. All donations at this time will be going to furthering the Chronicle through hiring individuals that have the same goals of providing fair, and unbiased news to the community. For now, donations will be going to a business PayPal account I have set-up for the Southern Maryland Chronicle, KDC Designs. All business transactions currently occur within this PayPal account. If you have any questions regarding this you can email me at email@example.com
Thank you for all of your support and I hope to continue bringing Southern Maryland the best news possible for a very long time. — David M. Higgins II
