During this past October, Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Maine Staffing Group invited their flaggers in Maine and New Hampshire to participate in a Pink Hard Hat fundraising campaign. All proceeds from the campaign were matched by Project Flagging and were donated to the Maine Breast Cancer Coalition in Sharon’s name. All flaggers received a pink hard hat to wear for the month of October to show their support.
Maine Breast Cancer Coalition is grateful for the generosity of Maine Staffing Group and all of the flaggers who took part in the Project Flagging Pink Hard Hat campaign. Our hearts go out to Sharon Burns’s family and friends. We are honored to accept the $5,000 donation to our Support Service Fund in Sharon's name.
