Pink October

For the third year in a row, First Choice America offices donned pink in the month of October to help fight the battle against breast cancer.  Each office had its very own theme and décor.   All eight offices sold breast cancer logos to follow their theme.  Also, employees donated money to dress down in jeans and pink throughout the month.  All monies raised  were donated to the Susan G. Komen Cancer Society.  This month long project gave Credit Union employees a chance to display their creativity while boosting a worthy cause.
