(HOUSTON – Oct. 02, 2014) Planning, engineering and program management firm Lockwood, Andrews & Newnam, Inc. (LAN) will donate $1,600 to the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Research Foundation to support breast cancer awareness month.
VoLANteers, LAN’s community organization, raised the money through online donations, a jeans day fundraiser, and by selling T-shirts to the firm’s employees. The organization also will support the cause at the 2014 Komen Houston Race for the Cure event on Oct. 4th where 18 of its members are participating.
“We are happy to make a small contribution to fight a disease that affects millions of women every year,” said Courtney Cunningham, an officer and member of VoLANteers.
VoLANteers raised $318 and 694 pounds of items for the Houston Food Bank in July and in December plans to donate gifts to Spaulding for Children Adoption and Foster agency.
