#HELPFIRST FOR FIRST RESPONDERS
Bio-One Donates First Aid Kits in Recognition of National Police Week
AKRON, OHIO – In recognition of National Police Week, May 9-15, Bio-One thanked first responders by donating first aid kits to Akron, Fairlawn, Bath, Copley, Norton, Cuyahoga Falls, Wadsworth, Medina, Creston, Massillon, Canton, and North Canton Police Departments, and the Wayne County Sheriff's Department as part of the nationwide campaign #HelpFirst for First Responders. Throughout the week, Bio-One offices in 41 states distributed a cumulative of 5,000 first aid kits which included alcohol swabs, Advil, gloves, gauze pads, and an assortment of bandages.
The #HelpFirst campaign aligns with the Bio-One motto, Help First, Business Second, and will be used to help officers and community members in the event of a minor medical emergency.
“We are proud to support the members of our local law enforcement” said Cuyler Costanzo, owner of Bio-One. “Their work is often risky and thankless and we are ever so grateful to them for ensuring the safety of our community.”
As a 2021 corporate sponsor of the Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund, Bio-One, Inc. also paid tribute to fallen officers during the virtual 33rd Annual Candlelight Vigil on May 13 at 8:00 p.m. The event was broadcast live on Facebook, YouTube, and LawMemorial.org/CV.
“We are so thankful for Bio-One’s corporate partnership and their continued support of the Memorial Fund,” said Marcia Ferranto, CEO of the National Law Enforcement Memorial Fund. “This partnership will further bolster the Memorial Fund’s mission of honoring America’s Law Enforcement, as well as provide support for the Museum’s upcoming exhibition opening in September. We are grateful for their commitment.”
Established in 1984, the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund is a nonprofit organization dedicated to honoring the fallen, telling the story of American law enforcement, and making it safer for those who serve. The Memorial Fund maintains the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial in Washington, D.C., which honors the names of all of the 22,611 officers who have died in the line of duty throughout U.S. history.
