Community Outreach

Community Outreach
Biodex Medical Systems, Inc. aims to serve the communities in which we live and work. Community and charitable outreach is a core value of the company. We are committed to playing a part as active corporate citizens – sharing our skills, expertise, and resources with the wider community and creating partnerships that have a positive impact on society.

The BioSteppers, are a team of employees that participated in the Center Moriches Relay for Life for the American Cancer Society. Team members took turns walking for 12 hours, noon to midnight, in an effort to raise money and promote cancer awareness at Center Moriches High School. Last year in 2010, we raised in excess of $4,300.00 and for 2011, we raised over $10,000! For more information, please click here.

Biodex Employees Volunteer for Daffodil Days

This March was our third year volunteering with Federal Express and the American Cancer Society for the Daffodil Days fundraiser. Biodex employees met with fellow volunteers at the FedEx building in Calverton on March 19th to sort and pack more than 50,000 daffodils for delivery to patients in health facilities throughout Suffolk County.

We enjoyed some good laughs and camaraderie while packing orders; some with bears, plain bunches or as potted plants.   >>

Also during September, we held a fundraising lunch for employees to raise money and awareness for The Retreat, a safe haven in East Hampton for victims of domestic violence. Our employees donated trays of penne ala vodka, ziti, sausage & peppers, macaroni & cheese, eggplant parmigana, meatballs, pasta salad, garden salad, antipasto salad, pasta fagioli, escarole w/garlic, broccoli w/garlic and lots of bread. Everyone enjoyed their lunch while funding a good cause!

IIsland Harvest 2011n September, in support of Island Harvest's efforts to collect food and/or donations, a handful of our employees adopted the Riverhead Panera Breadlocation for a week, as we did last year. For four hours we position a table and receptacle just outside Panera from 7 am – 11 am, Monday through Friday and ask their patrons to donate. For their donation, patrons receive a coupon for a free breakfast sandwich provided by Panera Bread. It's a win-win situation for everyone. For their volunteer time, Biodex pays employees their salary under the Company's popular Volunteer Program.

The Biodex Employee Volunteer Program is about much more than just donating money. Even more important are the time and skills Biodex employees give to the communities in which they live and work. >>

In August, we coordinated efforts with our neighbor, Family Service League, to have our employees donate back to school supplies for the needy families of our surrounding communities. We raised money and awareness through various fundraising means. Thanks to the generosity of our employees, we filled a 5 foot tall box with supplies and presented them to Family Service to distribute. >>
