Matric Associates participate in a variety of community fund-raisers throughout the year including the Relay for Life for the American Cancer Society and the United Way fund drive. Another tradition for the holiday season is an annual drive to collect food, clothes and non-perishable products for the PPC Violence Free network in Oil City.
The Relay for Life was held in late May, 2010, and netted $3,200 for the American Cancer Societies’ premiere fundraising event.
The United Way Campaign was also a huge success for the associates at Matric. The local agency depends on the annual donation as a large part of their fiscal budget for the year.
As in the past, Thanksgiving marked the kick-off time for collecting goods for the PPC network, which we hope to help stock their pantry for several months in 2011. With state and federal budget cuts – donations to these types of area agencies is even more crucial than in the past.
