GiantGear leads fundraiser for Hansen family
LAUREL — A fundraising effort for the Hansen family of Coleridge culminated in the presentation of a check to the late Robyn Hansen’s husband, Jeff, and daughter Maisie.
GiantGear USA, a manufacturing company in Laurel, and Senior Lifestyle Advantage joined forces to raise funds for the family through the sale of custom designed drink coasters to supporters across the community.
“We are happy to help the family, at least in a small way, to show that we support them at this difficult time,” says GiantGear’s CEO Jan Mansfield. “Although I didn’t know Robyn personally, judging by the outpouring of support for the family it is obvious that she was a special person in the community.”
“During difficult times, it’s comforting to know your community is with you,” said Judith Stanton, CEO/Publisher of Senior Lifestyle Advantage. “That’s why we were happy to partner with GiantGear to help.”
GiantGear has been manufacturing truck and automotive accessories in Laurel since the company re-located from California in 2006. Senior Lifestyle Advantage provides resources for seniors in the community.
Drink coasters are still available and can be purchased directly at GiantGear. Additional proceeds will be forwarded to the family.
