Driving Breast Cancer Awareness

I’ve been saving this story for the past couple weeks to kick off Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

But first, a little background:

About four years ago, we launched our Think Pink for Appliance Deliveries program. Through the program, Warners’ Stellian donates $1 to Susan G. Komen for the Cure – Minnesota Affiliate for every appliance delivery our two pink delivery trucks make.

The local Komen Affiliate passed along this e-mail it received from two-time breast cancer survivor and longtime local affiliate supporter Nancy:

Our washer and dryer from Warners Stellian came today and we had the GREATEST delivery guys in the world..Tom & Dave. Not only were they super good at what they do, they had nothing but wonderful things to say about their “pink truck” and their support of the Komen Foundation. We sent them on their way with sincere thanks for both their hard work…and for their wonderful comments about the Komen mission.

Nancy also took a couple pictures, and to my delight she was more than happy to share them – and more kind words – with our blog:

I am thrilled at the support you have given to our Komen for the Cure Affiliate and it’s programs,  and I send my personal thanks for all you do for the fight against breast cancer.  It was so much fun having that truck parked in front of my house!  The neighbors are still talking!

We love hearing stories like Nancy’s. Have you seen our trucks around town lately? More importantly, how do you support the fight against breast cancer?

  1. I save the pink lids from the Yoplait containers and send them back in. They then donate to the Komen foundation as well.
