Altamonte Springs, FL (PRWEB) August 15, 2016
BioPlus Specialty Pharmacy (BioPlus), one of the nation’s leading innovative specialty pharmacies, adapted the charitable Pay It Forward program after The Pulse tragedy to support the OneOrlando Fund. During the month of July, BioPlus increased the company’s donations to Pay It Forward, earmarking the higher level of donations directly to OneOrlando in order to support the victims and their families. A total of $3,140 was raised in July for OneOrlando.
The OneOrlando Fund was formed by the City of Orlando in the wake of the June 12, 2016 shooting tragedy at The Pulse nightclub. This fund was announced by Orlando’s Mayor Buddy Dyer with the objective of supporting the victims and their families affected by the deadly attack.
The BioPlus Pay It Forward campaign was established in 2013 and since then has provided $192,000 in donations to multiple non-profit patient foundations. Pay It Forward, by partnering with BioPlus’ 2-Hour Patient Acceptance Guarantee, makes a donation to a non-profit patient foundation for every referral received at BioPlus. During the month of July, BioPlus increased the donation for every referral by $1, with that money earmarked for the OneOrlando Fund.
“By increasing our Pay It Forward program, as well as direct donations from our employees, we raised $3,140 for the OneOrlando Fund which provides aid directly to the victims and their families,” explains Barbara Weller, Senior Vice President of Finance at BioPlus. “In this way, we hoped to demonstrate our love and support to those affected, especially since this was so close to home for us,” Weller adds.
