Moana Nursery donates to breast cancer research
Moana Nursery has presented a check for more than $6,600 to the American Cancer Society to help support breast cancer research.
The check was made possible in part from donations of its customers. Earlier this month, Moana Nursery decked out all three of its stores with pink – including the “Proud, Pink & Planted” shirts donned by all Moana Nursery teammates, both in the stores and in Landscape Services, all part of the “Real Men Wear Pink” campaign.
“Everyone knows a friend or family member that is part of this fight,” Moana Nursery president Gescheider said. “We are happy and very proud to help. And our roots in philanthropy run deep – in fact, our entire team asked to wear pink, working together for this important goal.”
In Nevada alone, more than 2,000 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in 2017.
Moana Nursery has three retail centers in Northern Nevada and is celebrating its 50th year in business in 2017.
After years of incremental healthcare reform, over $200 million in budget cuts threaten to turn back time
The $233 million in proposed reductions to the Department of Health and Human Services budget would make up nearly 20 percent of the projected $1.2 billion shortfall in 2020-21 — and more than 42 percent of the proposed $549 million in agency rate reductions.
