September 18, 2014
Mountain Parks Electric employees are thinking pink these days as they raise funds to battle cancer. The "Wear Your Heart On Your Head" campaign began with a challenge from 3M Electrical Markets Division. October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, an annual campaign to increase awareness of the disease. 3M, which is donating $15,000 to the American Cancer Society, challenged electrical co-ops to wear pink hard hats for the month of October to increase the awareness throughout the community. So the challenge is on, department-to-department, in MPE with $1 per work day pledges during the month of October for each employee who wears his/her pink hardhat or scarf each day, among other creative fundraising efforts at the co-op.
