The Child Cancer Fund & Digger Day
Since 1994, the Child Cancer Fund has been working to provide caring support for families fighting childhood cancer. By focusing on emotional, practical, educational and financial support for local families, they are a guiding light for the brave children and their families.
At Petticoat-Schmitt Civil Contractors, we are honored to stand alongside The Child Cancer Fund in Jacksonville, Florida, as dedicated community partners. Our commitment to making a positive impact extends beyond construction projects; it encompasses the well-being of our community, especially its youngest members. The Child Cancer Fund's unwavering dedication to supporting children and families affected by cancer resonates deeply with our values. Together, we strive to bring comfort, hope, and resources to those facing the challenges of childhood cancer. This partnership exemplifies our shared belief in the power of collective action and highlights our mutual goal of creating a brighter, healthier future for the children and families we proudly serve.
Initiated in 2022, Petticoat-Schmitt’s Digger Day(TM) has quickly become a highly anticipated event by the children and families working with The Child Cancer Fund. The 2023 event hosted more than 30 families to a day that everyone “digged.” Kids got to operate six different machines, engage in face painting, bounce house, sand art, and more. Everyone enjoyed pizza and cold drinks, and it’s not likely that any other field of dirt has supported so much love and hope. Petticoat-Schmitt is grateful for support of more than 28 caring companies that helped make the day a huge success, and raised $33, 000 to support the Child Cancer Fund.
Seamark Ranch’s vision is to break the generational cycle of failure that affects the families they serve, and to nurture purposeful living in children who have experienced the impact of broken families.
