MedPro Healthcare Staffing employees made a charitable donation of $1,805 last month to Parkland Cares, the rescue organization founded in honor of the victims of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting.
MedPro, a Sunrise-based travel nurse and staffing agency, has chosen the Parkland organization as the beneficiary of its Friday happy hour “Cocktails for Charity” initiative. Employees donated cash or bought a drink during happy hour during the event, with all proceeds going to Parkland Cares.
Founded in 2018, Parkland Cares provides funding and awareness for trauma care and mental health services in South Florida by providing grants to nonprofit organizations that provide trauma counseling.
The organization has already donated more than $1 million to these agencies.
“We are thrilled and honored to have Med Pro supporting Parkland Cares and our mission to continue to heal the community from the effects of trauma,” said Stacey Udine, Executive Director of Parkland Cares. “It’s simple acts of kindness like these that can make a big difference in someone’s life. The more we involve local businesses, the more impact we have to support our South Florida community.
