One of the things I love about being a Bio-One franchise owner is that this is a values-driven company with a Help First. Business Second motto. We always try to be as active in the community as possible by continuously supporting and sponsoring positive events and organizations. We have an especially soft spot in our hearts for events that support first responders and survivors. Most recently we have sponsored the Trauma Intervention Program 2nd Annual T.I.P. Tow Fire Truck Pull, as well as the Mothers Against Drunk Driving Annual Forget Me Not ceremony hosted by Cloverdale Funeral Home.
This was the second year that we provided lunch for the 60+ attendees of the MADD Forget Me Not. It’s hard not to get choked up watching the memorial video realizing that the list gets longer every year. On the other hand, the T.I.P. Tow was an upbeat event held at the Eagle Fun Days with some good-natured competition among first responders to see who could pull a fire truck the fastest. We sponsored the Ada County Coroner’s team, which improved on their time last year by 5 seconds! In the end T.I.P. was able to raise several thousand dollars for victims and survivors of trauma.
