Scotland County Cancer Crusade Raises $6,500
Scotland County residents raised more than $6,500 for the American Cancer Society through the Community Crusade, a door-to-door fundraising campaign held this summer. All of the proceeds from the campaign support the organization’s research, education, advocacy, and patient service programs.
Community council chairperson Arleta Dye and Community Crusade co-chairs Maxine Cook and Dorothy Harvey initiated the campaign for Scotland County.
“The American Cancer Society has invested over $2.3 billion in cancer research since our research program began in 1946,” said Brenda Carlin, income development specialist for the American Cancer Society. “Events like the Scotland County Community Crusade help fund this research, and ultimately, bring us closer to a cure for cancer.
