ServiceMaster Building Services of Lancaster County Donates to Light the Night Walk in Lancaster, PA

October 26th, 2015 · No Comments

When you need carpet cleaning or janitorial services for your office or business, you call ServiceMaster Building Services of Lancaster County because we are experts on commercial cleaning and restoration. But when it comes to cancer research, we know just as much as you do: cancer is a devastating disease and continued effort is needed to find a cure. That’s why we’ve made a $500 donation to the Lancaster area Light the Night Walk held on Saturday, October 17 2015.

Light the Night is an annual fundraising event held by local chapters of The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society (LLS) in communities across the United States. LLS is a national organization that has been raising money to fund research into cures for blood cancers such as leukemia, lymphoma and Hodgkin’s disease and to help patients access life-saving treatments since 1949. The proceeds from the Light to Night events are used to advance research for treatments, fund patient assistance programs, further government advocacy and provide community outreach and educational programs.

At each Light the Night, the community comes together to remember and celebrate the lives of those who battle with blood cancers. Participants are given a lantern to carry throughout their walk, each color has a special meaning. A red lantern is for supporters while survivors carry for white lanterns and a gold lantern is lit for those walking in memory of lost loved ones. The Central Pennsylvania Chapter held their Lancaster Light the Night Walk at the Clipper Magazine Stadium, and the 6,000 seat baseball park was filled with supporters and survivors of blood cancers. Last year, the Central Pennsylvania chapter raised $450,343 between their three walks in Lancaster, Harrisburg and York. This year, they have raised over $350,000 so far, and donations are still coming in for the Light the Night event in York, PA on October 24.

At ServiceMaster Building Services of Lancaster County, we are proud to support LLS again this year in their efforts to find cures and provide treatments to those in need. While we are Lancaster County’s experts on commercial cleaning and disaster restoration, LLS are experts at getting donations to the people and projects they are needed most. Call us today.
