Giving Back: A Check for the Children

May 5th 2017

On April 6, 2017, Intech Services hosted our annual fundraiser at Catherine Rooney’s in Trolley Square. The event raised money for Exceptional Care for Children, or the ECC. Exceptional Care for Children is the first and only pediatric, skilled nursing facility in Delaware. The ECC improves the lives of technology-dependent children and their families through skilled nursing, transitional and palliative care. Funded solely through donations and grants, every dollar helps to positively impact the lives of children.

Our annual fundraiser was a huge success. Thanks to our donated raffle items, live auction items, our corporate sponsors, and the money raised through guest bartending tips and the 50/50 raffle, we managed to raise over $11,000 for the ECC, far exceeding last year’s fundraiser and even our $10,000 goal for this year. It takes a village to make something like this so successful, and we are incredibly grateful to be a part of such a generous “village”.

Today, Shannon McLaughlin and Yolanda Rushdan, who are in charge of fundraising year round at the ECC, stopped by Intech to pick up the proceeds. We snapped a picture with them and the Community Service team, as well as Intech’s president, Mike Patterson.

Everyone on the Community Service team was thrilled to work with these ladies who do so much to positively impact the lives of so many. We hope that the money raised can help make Shannon and Yolanda’s jobs and the lives of the kids they serve just a little bit easier. It’s been an honor and a pleasure to work closely with such a great organization in our community. We are all looking forward to next year’s fundraiser and finding new and even better ways to give back.
