Rent this Excavator to Help Fight Cancer
Who said construction work can’t come in a pretty shade of pink? Beginning Oct. 1 and continuing for a full year, Beard Equipment Co. will rent a special John Deere earth mover to customers, with all rental revenue going to USA Children’s & Women’s Hospital and the USA Mitchell Cancer Institute.
“While launching our wellness program we recognized that employees, customers, relatives and friends have in some way been touched by cancer,” said Kristen Beard DeLaney of Beard Equipment in a written statement. “We wanted to make a contribution to the cancer research community.”
The powder pink machine is a 20 metric ton excavator, a construction tool for contractors for general site excavation, installation of pipe and utilities and general land clearing.
The pink paint was donated by Tommy English of Automotive Paint Supply and PPG. Rental rates are $800 daily, $2,000 weekly and $6,000 monthly.
Company officials said they hope to raising as much as $70,000 for USA Children’s & Women’s and the Mitchell Cancer Institute.
The tractor will be available to rent in Mobile and through Beard Equipment’s Florida locations in Pensacola, Panama City, Freeport, Jacksonville, Lake City and Palatka.
