Going Pink for Breast Cancer Awareness


October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Of course you have seen the pink around town by now.  Pink shirts, pink ties, pink decorations…all for a great cause.  Our area has really stepped up to raise awareness for Breast Cancer.  It’s a scary disease and early detection cannot be stressed enough.  We ask folks to think about those battling through the disease now and those who have done so bravely in the past.  That’s why we have decorated our offices to remind our friends just how important it is.  In fact, here at Hancock County Savings Bank, in observance of National Lee Denim Day, on Friday, October 5, our employees wore denim and the winning breast cancer awareness t-shirt design by Hancock County Savings Bank employee Kortnie Uselton.  Check out the photos below as our HCSB family came together—donating $5.00 each to Breast Cancer Awareness.  The photos show our crew in Chester, Weirton, and New Cumberland.  We have the most wonderful family here at Hancock County Savings Bank!

Other observances taking place in our communities are the Paint the Town Pink initiative by Change, Inc.  While Hancock County Schools and WMC are raising funds for the Real Men Wear Pink initiative by encouraging donations for the American Cancer Society through Hancock County Schools Superintendent Timothy Woodward and WMC OB/GYN Daniel Moore, MD.  The two men are wearing pink each day of the month and in return, hoping for donations in their name to the American Cancer Society.  To learn more about how you can donate to the Real Men Wear Pink fundraiser, go to the following link:
