The Shingletown Medical Center (SMC) wants to thank all the volunteers that donated their time and efforts to help make this “20th Anniversary” Think Pink Day a huge success in our community. Volunteers helped with the 800 bags that were stuffed with numerous breast cancer awareness materials and a special enclosed item for the Shingletown, Manton and Hat Creek bags. SMC along with Owen’s Pharmacy had pink gelled hot / cold compresses made for our communities’ bags. Also, a special thank you to Cheryl Hull for her continued donation of pink carnations along with Irene Castro and friends help with securing the ribbons.
Think Pink bags were available at various establishments throughout town, and also handed out to drivers in front of the Pioneer Hillside Pizza, AG & Company English Toffee Candy and Black Butte Market from 6:30am to 8:30am on Think Pink Day, October 20th. A huge thank you to Mary Chambers, Jackie Ferguson, Janet Thomas, Josh Leach, Lyn Smith, Karen Sundquist and our Cal-Fire friends for their liveliness and exuberance handing the bags and carnations out to drivers. Also, thank you to Les Baugh, District 5 County Supervisor, whom made a surprise visit and helped hand out bags at both locations.
Nor-Cal Think Pink is much more than just this one day event. They promote a community effort to promote breast cancer awareness. More information on their various programs and events can be viewed on their website: www.norcalthinkpink.org and Facebook page: www.facebook.com/norcal.thinkpink
