Think pink: Post Office supports cause

Published 10:43pm Monday, October 25, 2010

In support of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, the Clanton Post Office has gone “pink” and is encouraging everyone to show support by purchasing Breast Cancer Awareness stamps.

For the month of October, the post office will be selling stamps commemorating Breast Cancer Awareness for $11 a book with $2.20 of the proceeds being donated to breast cancer research. Individual stamps can be purchased at 55 cents, and proceeds from those stamps will be donated to research as well.

“Post offices have already donated $70 million to breast cancer research,” said Donna Wyatt, post office clerk. “Most people don’t even realize it is Breast Cancer Month.”

Pink balloons, ribbons, and pens decorate the branch as the stamps sit on display.

“It’s going very well and is an absolutely wonderful thing post offices are doing, especially with the amount of money we’ve raised,” said Wyatt. “Costumers come in and compliment the decorations and say they appreciate that we are recognizing this month.”
