Fundraising: LLS Team in Training

Beth Mosner, our Sales & Marketing Administrator, is a big supporter of the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. Her niece was diagnosed with AML Leukemia in 2012 and was just declared a Cancer Survivor in June 2017.  Beth runs in honor of loved ones lost, in support of those fighting the battle and for all cancer survivors.

The LLS Team in Training started in 1988 and has become the leader in endurance sports training for charity. Beth spends about 6 months out of the year training and raising funds for the LLS Team in Training. Last year, she ran the Disney LLS TNT Martathon with a goal of raising $2,800 (she raised $3,110). This year she hopes to raise $3,200 to support the Society and help find a cure for blood cancer.

Beth said that she has wanted to sign up since the day she finished the last marathon! “Being part of the Team in Training was so powerful and uplifting that I decided to sign up again! The encouragement, love, compassion and support of the LLS organization inspired me so much that I want to continue to be a part of the Team in Training for as long as I can.”

The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) is the world’s largest voluntary health agency dedicated to blood cancer. The LLS mission: Cure leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin’s disease and myeloma, and improve the quality of life of patients and their families. LLS funds lifesaving blood cancer research around the world and provides free information and support services.

Volunteerism: Chesapeake Bay Oyster Restoration Project

 

Miltec UV is fortunate to be located on historic Kent Island, on the Eastern Shore of Maryland’s Chesapeake Bay. Our commitment to being an environmentally cognizant company extends to our staff.

Current staff member Nancy Kunkel volunteers with the Chesapeake Bay Foundation’s restoration projects, recently helping to build protective “Oyster Balls”.  A single adult oyster can filter approximately 50 gallons of water a day.   The sturdy habitats are designed to help repopulate the Bay’s declining oyster population by providing a safe environment for the oyster spat (baby oysters) to grow to maturity.

Nancy said she volunteers because, “As an avid kayaker, the Chesapeake Bay is an important part of both my life and those who live in and around the Bay.  The Chesapeake Bay Foundation offers educational, advocacy and restoration opportunities to help us protect the irreplaceable natural resource.”

Community Outreach – Run4Shelter

Miltec UV's Run4Shelter TeamOn Saturday, September 10th, several Miltec UV managers and employees gathered at the Kent Island HS track for the annual Haven Ministries Run4Shelter. Miltec was once again a Gold sponsor of the event, whose goal is to improve the lives of the impoverished within our community of Queen Anne’s county. By being a sponsor, Miltec UV supported and encouraged the participation of their employees in this community event. In addition to the sponsorship, Miltec UV employees raised $512 through payroll deductions, and a silent auction comprised of items donated by the employees.

The Run4Shelter is the largest fundraiser held in support of Haven Ministries each year. In addition to providing shelter, clothing and food, Haven Ministries has expanded to offer several new programs to the community. Street Outreach is a program where Haven Ministries staff visit the community to help those in need make connections to valuable resources. A daytime resource center located within St. Paul’s Episcopal Church in Centerville will also be opening to the public starting November 15, 2016. The center will provide meeting space, computers and office equipment to support educational programs and job training for Queen Anne’s County residents. Those in need will also be given access to the local laundry mat for their washing needs.

Miltec UV takes pride in supporting a community program as significant and impacting as this. They plan on continuing this support for years to come.

Miltec UV Supports West Virginia in Flood Disaster Relief

For Immediate Release
July 15, 2016

Stevensville, MD- The owners and employees of Miltec UV rallied together to solicit donations, funds and support from the local community for the victims of the recent West Virginia floods.

Several managers at Miltec UV have family located in Rainelle, WV who lost their homes and therefore, Miltec UV was directly impacted by this natural disaster. They felt compelled to help by gathering donations and becoming the donation center for the Chesapeake Bay Business Park in Stevensville, Maryland. Miltec UV was extremely pleased with the immediate outpouring of support from their neighbors.

Miltec UV’s accounting manager, Mary Yeager commented,
“Wow, the support that Miltec immediately offered to the town my Mom so loved, and where many of my relatives still live, is overwhelming! Thanks to their connection to the local business community and the loving, caring employees (really more like Family than co-workers) the donations came pouring in! In addition to organizing the collections, Miltec also graciously offered their truck to transport the items. My co-workers selflessly gave up some of their lunch time to help pack up the donations, and load the truck. All the help from everyone is VERY Much appreciated!”

Over a two week period, Miltec UV gathered over 3 skids worth of donations. They were in communication with the Rainelle community and purchased supplies based on the needs of the devastated town. The immediate needs ranged from bleach and bottled water during the first few days to boots, fans, shovels, hoses, air mattresses, sheets, towels, toiletries, clothing and canned goods. In addition, Miltec UV reached out to local companies for discounts, and through the help of a local bank, they made contact with a Disaster Relief Church in Nashville, TN. The church committed to supplying 6 tractor trailers full of much needed supplies.

If you would like to make a donation, funds can be sent directly to RCDC at the following address – please indicate that it is for disaster relief:

Rainelle Community Development Corporation

Miltec UV gives back to the local community by sponsoring and participating in the Haven Ministries Run for Shelter each year. Haven Ministries is a local non-profit, faith-based organization comprised of local church leaders committed to making a difference. This group operates on the premise of showing God’s love to the poor within our community by providing essential services.

The Run 4 Shelter is the largest fundraiser held each year in support of Haven Ministries. Miltec has proudly supported the run since 2011, frequently forming the largest group of runners and walkers at the event.

The auction is a creative way to make giving fun, while allowing for 100% companywide participation.

The money raised and donated to Haven Ministries helps provide vital support for a number of programs in Queen Anne’s county, including Our Daily Thread Thrift Store, the Emergency Food Pantry, Our Haven Home, and Our Haven Shelter. These services are the result of the planning and support of Queen Anne’s County Christian Assistance, an alliance of churches working as on, to help those in need.
