Local Garden Center Supports The Fight Against Breast Cancer

PALM COAST, Fla., December 28, 2015 – On Dec. 18, VerdeGo Palm Coast Garden Center donated $800 to support Florida Hospital Flagler’s Pink Army campaign. 
 
These funds were raised during Oct. 17, in which VerdeGo pledged a portion of the day’s proceeds to help provide screening mammograms and diagnostic studies to local women in need at Florida Hospital Flagler. 
 
“On behalf of VerdeGo and all of our employees, we are proud and blessed to donate to Florida Hospital’s Pink Army,” said VerdeGo owner T.J. McNitt. “We live and work in this community and know that our donation will benefit others.”
 
“We are honored to receive this generous donation from VerdeGo,” said John Subers, Florida Hospital Flagler Foundation executive director. “We thank the employees and patrons of VerdeGo for their support in helping Florida Hospital Flagler care for 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 Florida Hospital Pink Army enlisted more than 6,000 “soldiers” to battle breast cancer. Now, armed with more than 53,000 soldiers, the Florida Hospital 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.
