Southwest Green Team Donates to Children’s Hospital

Oct 5 2016



On October 5, 2016 The Preferred Materials South West Region Green Team delivered five Chad’s Brackets wagons on behalf of CRH and Oldcastle Materials to Golisano Children’s Hospital in Fort Myers, Florida. The team met with Child Life Specialist for General Pediatrics and Pediatric Intensive Care, Karlie Colwell, and patients.

Colwell said everyone at the hospital was very happy about getting the five wagons with the IV poles. The wagons will be used throughout the hospital for young patients in general pediatrics, pediatric intensive care, pediatric surgery, and pediatric hematology/oncology.

Green Team Captain, Erica Mejia, explained that everyone in the hospital was thankful for Preferred’s generosity and kindness. She said “It is a blessing and a privilege to have the support from my company to make a positive change in someone’s life, and to make a difference in this world”.

Special thanks to Preferred Employees Lorenzo Irving, Robert Pender, David Lantrip and Erica Mejia for proudly representing Preferred and Oldcastle Materials!
