American Pest To Donate Proceeds To Breast Care for Washington

09/29/2014


Someone you know has been touched by breast cancer.

According to the National Cancer Institute, Washington D.C. has the highest breast cancer mortality rate in the country. While the reasons for this alarming statistic vary, access to breast cancer screening is a prime factor.

At American Pest we pride ourselves in giving back to our community, which is why we have partnered with Breast Care for Washington, a D.C. organization that provides no-cost mammograms, clinical breast screenings, and access to ongoing breast cancer treatment.

In doing so, American Pest has pledged to donate $1 for each residential program service completed during the month of October. Donated funds will go towards breast cancer screening services provided to women at the organization’s facility located in the Conway Health and Resource Center in Southwest D.C.

Designated “pink” days will be observed by employees at the corporate office in Fulton, MD, while field personnel and pest control technicians will show their support for the cause by wearing pink gloves and shoe covers throughout October.

American Pest has a unique opportunity to make an important contribution to our community. Additional events, breast cancer awareness information, and proceeds for Breast Cancer for Washington can be found by following us on Twitter and Facebook.

Breast Care for Washington was founded in 2012 by Dr. Regina Hampton, a breast surgeon, and Beth Beck, M.A., CHES, former executive director of Capital Breast Care Center. The organization’s mission is to reduce breast cancer mortality in the Washington, D.C. area by promoting access to breast cancer screening, diagnostics, and treatment to all women regardless of their ability to pay.
