Baldwin EMC recently made a donation totaling $5,000 to the Orange Beach Fire Department’s Guardians of the Ribbon to benefit their “Pink Heals” program. The proceeds were the result of the cooperative’s annual Pink Power campaign.
Throughout the month of October, Baldwin EMC offered specially designed Pink Power T-shirts in exchange for donations to Pink Heals, and employees participated in various fundraisers to support the program. The co-op’s operations crews also wore pink hard hats during the month to draw attention to the campaign and raise awareness for the fight against breast cancer.
The Orange Beach Fire Department’s Pink Heals program raises funds to provide money for medical treatment and other basic necessities for those fighting cancer in the local community. Members of the department also conduct home visits to offer hope and support to cancer patients.
