Pequea, a family owned manufacturer of agricultural equipment, has
donated $10,000 to the Breast Health Institute (BHI) through its ‘Spread
Hope’ campaign for breast cancer awareness.

Since February 14 of this year, the Pennsylvania based company has been setting aside a percentage of all manure spreader sales to contribute to BHI, a breast cancer foundation and think tank headquartered in Philadelphia. The campaign’s symbol – a custom-painted, pink Pequea 25G manure spreader – has also been traveling across the country, promoting breast cancer awareness.

The Skibo family, who own and operate Pequea, have experienced
the affects of breast cancer first-hand. Pam Skibo, wife of company owner Dennis Skibo, faced the threat of breast cancer about 12 years ago. Pam’s grandmother also fought and won her own battle with the disease.

“The goal of our campaign is to reach our women customers and
remind them of the importance of caring for their health and support the organizations who share the same objective,” says Dennis. “Thanks
to our partnership with the Breast Health Institute, I feel we have
been successful.”
