We are excited to announce that we have once again teamed up with Publix to support the American Breast Cancer Foundation (ABCF) with a “Shop Pink” campaign to advocate & bring awareness to early detection, support services, & education to fight breast cancer. Throughout the month of October, keep a lookout for a pink ABCF sticker on our packages of sweet corn (as seen below). Every time one of our packs of corn wearing this sticker is sold, we have committed to contribute 5 cents to the American Breast Cancer Foundation.
There were several reasons why we elect to support ABCF & one of those reasons is their local involvement. Our families have personally experienced the benefit of services offered by the ABCF. Additionally, they have a low administrative allocation on the donations given to them, which allows more of the monies raised to go directly towards helping people. Breast cancer is a global burden & is the most common cancer in the world among women. In the United States, breast cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death for all women. Recognizing these facts promotes us, like many of you, to get involved & make a difference.
Each year, both men & women nationwide receive life-saving services provided by the American Breast Cancer Foundation to aid in the early detection, treatment, & survival of breast cancer. These support programs provide direct assistance grants to reduce the financial barriers of individuals regardless of age, race, or gender. However, these grants are only made possible when businesses, like us, partner with ABCF in support of the endeavor to “Extend the Reach of the Rescue” & help those who have nowhere else to turn.
