Photo: Pink ‘heart’ hats help battle cancer

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.
