Al's Gives Back - Breast Cancer Research Foundation 2021
As a small business in the Cedar Rapids community, Al’s Full Service Auto Repair knows how important it is to be involved with our community. We do this by supporting other local businesses and national organizations that help our community thrive. With that in mind, Al’s Full Service is giving back to our community in different ways while highlighting other businesses doing the same.
Cancer Sucks! Everyone’s life has been affected by cancer in one form or another. We either have had it or known someone who has had it. Many years ago, cancer was a death sentence, especially breast cancer. It was usually caught too late, and the result was never good. But, thanks to the evolution of modern testing and treatments finding out that you have breast cancer can be a little less frightening. Many of us at Al’s have had breast cancer effect our lives and wanted to help.
Every year at the beginning of October as a part of our “Al’s Gives Back” program Al’s Full Service takes the time to think about those who we know that have had breast cancer, those who currently have it and those who will get it. In October we donate a portion of every dollar spent with us to help a breast cancer organization. Most recently in 2021 we were able to donate $1550.00 to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation in the hope that our small donation will help find a cure or a better treatment and that will save someone’s life. Thank you to everyone that visits our shop in October, without you giving this gift of HOPE would not be possible.
