Celebrating Hope: MSD, Inc and Pink Ribbon Good Join Forces

Today marked a significant milestone in the journey of hope and support for those affected by breast and gynecological cancers, as MSD, Inc proudly unveiled the Pink Ribbon Good (PRG) and MSD, Inc Driven By Hope PINK Van. This event wasn’t just about revealing a new vehicle; it was a celebration of unity, commitment, and the collective effort to make a difference in the lives of cancer survivors. The air buzzed with excitement, complemented by the sea of co-branded sweatshirts, symbolizing the strong partnership between MSD, Inc and PRG.

The Evolution of PRG’s Driven By Hope

The Driven By Hope initiative by PRG began its impactful journey in 2013 with just a single flatbed truck, generously provided by a construction company, carrying the powerful message, “No One Travels This Road Alone.” From those humble beginnings, the program has grown remarkably, now boasting a fleet of over 50 co-branded trucks. These vehicles stand as beacons of hope, representing the dedication of sponsors to support breast and gynecological cancer survivors in their communities.

PRG’s Mission: A Pillar of Support

Pink Ribbon Good stands as a guardian angel for those touched by breast and gynecological cancer. Offering a comprehensive suite of support services, including free healthy meals, transportation to treatment, housecleaning essentials, and peer support, PRG ensures that no one faces their battle alone. With groups in Dayton, Columbus, Cincinnati, San Francisco, St. Louis, and Buffalo, PRG’s reach and impact continue to grow, providing solace and assistance to many.

MSD, Inc’s Pledge to Make a Difference

Through the Give to Grow Community Involvement Program, MSD, Inc has taken a significant step by selecting PRG as a primary focus for support this year. The introduction of the pink van and a heartfelt donation of $10,000 mark the beginning of this collaborative effort. These actions reflect more than just a financial contribution; they represent a shared commitment to offering hope and making a real difference in the lives of those on their cancer journey.

The Impact of Every Contribution

MSD, Inc’s partnership with PRG exemplifies a shared commitment to community support and making a tangible difference. This collaboration is rooted in the belief that together, we can provide a network of hope and assistance that uplifts and supports individuals and families navigating the challenges of cancer. It’s about more than just aiding a cause; it’s about building a community of support, resilience, and unwavering care.

As we celebrate this new chapter, let us remember the importance of our collective efforts in spreading hope and providing support to every individual and family affected by cancer. This partnership between MSD, Inc and PRG symbolizes a united front in the fight against cancer, and we are excited to see the positive changes this collaboration will bring.

WPAFB Sensors Lab

Wright-Patt Air Force Base sought contractors to renovate and add onto the Sensors Lab. The HVAC portion of the project was over $13 million.

  • MSD served as the Design Assist Contractor in conjunction with Heapy Engineering for this project. In collaborating with General Contractor, Butt Construction, MSD provided Design Assist solutions for the following:
    • A large, anechoic chamber
    • An outdoor range
    • Multiple, Class-100 clean rooms
    • A three-story office building addition with DCID 6-9 requirements on many of the rooms

WPAFB Chilled Water System

The chilled water system at a high-security building on the Air Force Base was undersized and unable to keep up with demand. The facility could not operate without chilled water due to the amount of information servers in the building, and the general nature of the building itself. The entire upgrade project would need to be completed with minimal shut down time at the building. HVAC portion of this project was over $3 million.

  • MSD worked in collaboration with Diaz Construction to complete the system upgrades on time and on budget with minimal shutdowns or disruption to the facility operations.

LJB, Inc.

LJB, Inc. was renovating their Miamisburg, OH office and wanted to incorporate energy-saving upgrades.

  • MSD provided Design Build services in tandem with Greensleeves Energy Solutions, a specialist in geothermal systems.
  • MSD and Greensleeves installed a new geothermal HVAC system with open and closed loops. In addition, MSD design and installed the plumbing portion of the renovation.
