GOSHEN, Ind. – Borden Waste-Away presented a check to the Goshen Health Foundation on July 25, 2017, at Goshen Center for Cancer Care. The check for $22,199 represents the contributions of Borden’s customers who participate in Borden’s “Trash Cancer Program.” This year marks the sixth year of the program and brings the total contributions to $141,494. All of the money goes toward research through Goshen Center for Cancer Care Research Fund.

“The innovative care and treatment provided at Goshen Center for Care are greatly impacted through partnerships like this,” said Mark Lindemood, chief philanthropy officer, Goshen Health Foundation. “We are thankful for all those at Borden who make this so easy for their customers to participate in the ‘Trash Cancer’ matching program and deeply appreciate those who share our common purpose of compassionately providing innovative cancer care through research.”

“All of us at Borden extend our gratitude to those who participate in our Pink Cart and Trash Cancer Matching Fund Program and to our friends at the Goshen Center for Cancer Care who provide such excellent and valuable care,” stated Chris Himes, president, Borden Waste-Away Group. “Their research and clinical trials provide world-class access to the latest in cancer treatments and we consider ourselves fortunate to provide such a meaningful partnership.”

The company’s Trash Cancer Matching Fund program is available with or without a Pink cart. The program offers Borden Waste-Away customers an optional Pink Cart for roadside trash collection as well as a Trash Cancer Matching Fund that allows customers to add $1 each month to their billing, which Borden matches dollar for dollar. All donations and Borden’s matching funds support the Goshen Center for Cancer Care Research Fund with programs that include 45 active clinical trials, spanning breast, lung, colorectal, lymphoma, esophageal, head and neck, prostate, melanoma, multiple myeloma, pancreatic, and other cancers.  Other programs include preclinical studies for early detection, cancer vaccinations and improved radiation oncology verification systems, as well as The Tissue Bank.
