Suffolk Cement Precast Supports Cancer Programs at Peconic Bay Medical Center

(RIVERHEAD, NY – March 18, 2016) Peconic Bay Medical Center’s Cancer Services Program will be the recipient of quarterly donations from Suffolk Cement Precast, Inc to help benefit cancer patients who utilize The Cancer Services Program of Suffolk County.

Suffolk Cement Precast’s recent purchase of a new truck for deliveries is dedicated to those who have lost the fight with cancer and those who continue to fight. Suffolk Cement Precast, Inc. has been a family run business for more than 70 years. Suffolk Cement Precast is based in Calverton, NY and for 3 generations the Lohr family has been supplying Long Islanders with commercial and residential cement product needs.

“We will donate 5% of the delivery charges made with this truck to the fight against cancer,” said Shay Lohr, Owner of Suffolk Cement Precast. “We want to keep our donations local and we are happy to know it’s going to a program that offers the resources needed from screening to surgeries, to help save the lives of people throughout Suffolk County.”

Cancer Services Program of Suffolk County assists more than 2,000 people with access to cancer screening services and provides support for more than 45 men and women who are diagnosed with cancer annually. The donations will be used to support patients during their cancer treatment.  “This support will help men and women through a very difficult time in their life and is vital in helping us ensure that people have all the support necessary to fight, prevent or survive cancer,”  said Maureen O’Connor, Director of The Cancer Services Program of Suffolk County.
