DNCU Breast Cancer Awareness

DNCU is creating awareness for breast cancer this October with a campaign to raise funds to be donated to the American Cancer Society, Inc. The decision to raise funds and awareness began with a reflection on what credit unions are known for—giving back and being helpful community partners.

Each Friday in October staff will be wearing casual PINK attire and request donations from members to benefit the American Cancer Society, Inc. This will create awareness throughout our communities as well as supporting research for a cure.
