The team at Advanced Mechanical tries to give back every day if we can but it becomes especially important to us during the holidays. As a family-owned and operated business, everything starts at home. This is what made the decision to support St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital so easy. Families are fully supported and never pay a dime. What better way to make a difference than doing so in the life of a child?
The AMC Christmas Tree was overflowing with toys and gift cards donated by the team here and our fellow union employees. It was heartwarming to see the generosity of so many people!!
St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, founded in 1962 by Danny Thomas, is a non-profit, pediatric treatment and research facility focused on children’s catastrophic diseases. The hospital costs about $2.4 million a day to run, and there is no cost to the family ever for a child to be treated, housed or fed. This is based on their mission that all a family should worry about is helping their child live. Treatments invented at St. Jude have helped push the overall childhood cancer survival rate from 20% to more than 80% since it opened more than 50 years ago. The hospital has treated children from all 50 states and around the world.
