It’s that time of the year again. Fargo Insurance Group, Inc. is proud to host it’s Third Annual Bras For A Cause for the entire month of October 2012. In 2010 Fargo Insurance Group (FIG), recognized an opportunity for us to have a creative impact on funding the fight against cancer. Since the inception of Bras For a Cause, Fargo Insurance Group has donated more than $5,000 to cancer research. It is our hope that the 3rd Annual event will be the largest success yet.
How does it work?
Just drop of your bras at any of our location. Bras are accepted at any of the 5 local Fargo Insurance locations (Martinsburg, Ranson, Hedgesville, Inwood, Annandale). Drop your bras off and while your there enter to win multiple prizes. For each bra donated to the cause FIG will donate $.50 to a local organization in an effort to support the research on finding a cure for this disease. In 2010, the money was donated to Susan G. Komen. In 2011, the money was donated to Jefferson, Berkeley and Shepherd University Relay for Life events.
What happens to the bras?
The bras donated can be of any condition. The bras in moderate to excellent condition will be donated to a local women shelter. The bras in poor condition are disposed of appropriately.
How many bras do you want?
This year, for the first time, FIG will be tracking bra donations throughout the month (previously, they were tallied at the end). We have set a goal of 1,000 bras. You can follow the communities success at our Facebook Page.
