PALM COAST, Fla., November 16, 2015 – On Nov. 10, the Flagler County Tax Collectors office donated $2,422 to Florida Hospital Flagler’s Pink Army campaign, which provides screening mammograms, diagnostic studies and education to local women in need.
Throughout October, each clerk station at the tax collector’s offices placed specially-designated jars to receive donations from taxpayers to benefit the Florida Hospital Flagler Pink Army.
“Our office is so pleased to help support those in need,” said Flagler County tax collector Suzanne Johnston. “We know these funds could possibly save a life through early detection and cancer screenings.”
“We are blessed to have such a great relationship with Suzanne Johnston and her team. Their devotion to our community is inspiring,” said Florida Hospital Flagler Foundation executive director John Subers. “We are certainly grateful for this wonderful donation, but their generosity extends beyond this. They raise thousands of dollars each year for a variety of very worthy causes, each making a difference in our community.”
The Florida Hospital Pink Army campaign began in Volusia and Flagler counties in the fall of 2010 and is aimed at enlisting individuals to help create greater awareness about the life-saving benefits of annual mammograms and early detection. In its first year alone, the Pink Army enlisted more than 6,000 “soldiers” to battle breast cancer. Now, armed with more than 53,000 soldiers, the Pink Army movement has swept across the state, encouraging Central Floridians to join this important cause. Florida Hospital Pink Army is on active duty in the following counties: Flagler, Hardee, Highlands, Lake, Orange, Osceola, Seminole and Volusia.
