Springfield Plastics launched its 4th Annual Drain for the Cure campaign in October and is excited to announce it has resulted in a donation of $73,136 for the Simmons Cancer Institute at Southern Illinois University in Springfield. The Drain for the Cure campaign started in 2014 in an effort to raise money for cancer research. Since its inception in 2014, the campaign has raised over $188,000. 2017’s total of $73,136 far surpassed expectations!

Unfortunate circumstances in which employees, customers, family and friends of Springfield Plastics were affected by cancer inspired Springfield Plastics to start the Drain for the Cure campaign. Steve Baker, President of Springfield Plastics, stated, “We could never have imagined that we would reach the total we did this year. It is with utmost gratitude that we thank all those who contributed. We are honored to be part of such an outstanding community that has come together to support this deserving cause.”

The Simmons Cancer Institute serves cancer patients by addressing their present and future cancer care needs through medical education, biomedical research, patient care and community service.

A formal check presentation of the donation is scheduled at 10am on Monday, December 4th at Simmons Cancer Institute at SIU located at 315 Carpenter St. in Springfield, IL.
