In Gates, New York, there will be new pink carts to throw recyclables in to support the fight against breast cancer. For every new customer who gets the pink cart, the company Boon and Sons will donate $5 to the American Cancer Society, according to the Gates Chili Post.
"Breast cancer has affected so many of our customers, as well as our employees and families throughout the community. Finding a cure is a cause close to our hearts." Matt Boon, vice president of the company, told the news source. "We're excited to play a part in the fight against breast cancer with these Pink Carts, which will allow our customers to show their support in the fight and help raise awareness of this disease."
According to the Susan G. Komen organization, women are recommended to get a yearly mammogram after they turn 40 years old in order to catch the disease as its earlier stages. The death rate of the women who suffer from this disease has been decreasing since 1990 due to research advancements in breakthrough breast cancer news.
