Credit union in Pensacola, FL advocates for breast cancer awareness with donation

The financial institution strives to further support their community in times of uncertainty.

PENSACOLA, FL (November 23, 2020) — During the month of October 2020, Central Credit Union of Florida promoted candy bar sales to generate proceeds for a donation to the Pensacola Breast Cancer Association supporting their mission of advocating the education and prevention of breast cancer.  This year saw great success with a total contribution of $600 to the charitable foundation.

Central Credit Union raises money to donate to various non-profit organizations throughout the year through candy bar sales. Each October, to help raise awareness for breast cancer, the candy bar drive is devoted to support the Pensacola Breast Cancer Association whose goal is to help provide mammograms for the indigent and underinsured patient population in our area since 2003.

As Barbara MacNeil, Central Credit Union of Florida Community Liaison, said,

“We have partnered with the PBCA for eight years now and always look forward to presenting this donation to their organization.  Their mission is vital to our community and being able to support them is what we are all about: people helping people.”

Central Credit Union of Florida pledges to continue their fundraising efforts so that they can continue to give back to those in need.  Events and promotions are scheduled throughout the rest of the year and they plan to maintain a robust philanthropic environment within the credit union.
