Help a Woman Fighting Cancer: Clean for a Reason

Help a Woman Fighting Cancer: Clean for a Reason

Have you ever wondered how to best help a family member, friend or colleague battling cancer?

While simply being there for them as an emotional support system can often be enough, one national non-profit organization works to help make their home life easier by offering them help where they most need it.

Cleaning for a Reason was developed just a few years ago as a free professional cleaning outlet for women undergoing treatment for any type of cancer.  With 547 partners currently signed up to provide the service across both the United States and Canada, this non-profit organization is continuously expanding its reach to help more and more affected women.

To sign-up, all a woman needs is to do is have her doctor fax a note confirming the treatment of chemotherapy to the representatives at Cleaning for a Reason

NATIONAL GRID PREPARES FOR SUMMER DEMAND

June 23, 2011 – One way to make the lazy days of summer even more relaxing is to be ready for what the weather will bring.  National Grid has prepared its New York system to help customers beat the heat and urges customers to take steps to cut costs when the temperature rises.

"National Grid's increased investment in the upstate New York electric system in recent years directly supports our reliability during summer's peaks," said Kenneth D. Daly, National Grid president for New York.  "As the frequency and length of customer outages continue to improve, National Grid recognizes that ongoing investment in the system will provide our customers with the service reliability they deserve."

Catholic Charities' 2011 Appeal Hits $10 Million Mark

BUFFALO, N.Y., June 1, 2011 – The 2011 Appeal in support of Catholic Charities of Buffalo has topped $10 million, with less than $500,000 needed to achieve its goal of $10.5 million, the organization announced today. The goal is within reach as a recent push to contact lapsed large gift donors raised the total to $10,023,942.68.  
 
With about four weeks left until the end of Catholic Charities’ fiscal year on June 30, an additional $476,057.32 is needed in cash and pledges to reach the goal.

“Ten million dollars is a significant milestone for this campaign, and one we are grateful to be able to reach at this time,” said Sister Mary McCarrick, OSF, diocesan director for Catholic Charities. “The dedicated efforts of our volunteers and generous donors have helped us move closer and closer to our goal and we could not be more thankful. They are truly making a positive impact to the lives of those we serve.”
