MEMBER SERVICES Q&A: Breast Cancer Awareness Month

1006
 2015


— Carmen Uballe, member service representative

Q: I noticed that Bluebonnet’s member service buildings had pink lights last October and that you do other things for Breast Cancer Awareness Month. It’s a cause that is dear to my heart. Will you be supporting it again this year? 
 
A: I’m glad you asked. As a breast cancer survivor, October is a special month for me, too. The community is very important to Bluebonnet and is, in fact, one of our six Foundation Values — Safety, Courage, Respect, Reliability, Community and Love — that shape our business decisions. 
 
We give back to our neighbors through community service projects and by supporting worthy causes such as Breast Cancer Awareness Month, which we are doing again this year. In addition to illuminating our five member service centers with pink lights, our linemen are wearing pink hard hats, the Bluebonnet service trucks are displaying pink ribbon magnets and all Bluebonnet employees were given a pink T-shirt and a pink metal ribbon pin, which you’ll probably see all around the area during October. 
 
Bluebonnet members may pick up a free pink ribbon pin in October at any one of our member service centers in Bastrop, Brenham, Giddings, Lockhart and Manor. 
 
My motto: “Early detection is the best protection for women and men.” Breast cancer doesn’t care whether you are female or male. Find resources about breast cancer at nationalbreastcancer.org, breastcancer.org and komen.org
 
In keeping with the pink theme, members who have an online account at bluebonnet.coop or on our mobile app for smartphones as of Oct. 31 will be entered in a drawing for a chance to win a pink YETI cooler. For more information, go HERE
