Employees of CEI — a Trevose, Pa.-based provider of technology-enhanced vehicle accident, driver safety and fleet risk management services — have raised more than $2,200 to support the Philadelphia Ronald McDonald House adjacent to St. Christopher’s Hospital for Children.
The creation of the year-old facility, the city’s second, was the goal of “Katie’s Krusaders,” a charity formed by Paul and Terry Duffin of Doylestown, Pa., after the loss of their four-year-old daughter to cancer in 2003. Paul Duffin works for CEI as a team leader in its strategic account services department.
CEI’s employees selected Katie’s Krusaders as the focus of their annual “Project Cheer” charitable giving activities for 2008. Activities included seven daily 50/50 raffles and a silent auction.
Duffin says the donations will go to the families of children at St. Christopher’s, Shriners’ and Temple University Children’s hospitals who are staying at the Philadelphia Ronald McDonald House at Front and Erie to help pay for prescriptions and ease other financial hardships.
