BancorpSouth Bank (NYSE: BXS) announced that the East Alabama Medical Center (EAMC) Foundation is the recipient of a $2,500 donation from BancorpSouth’s Pink Card debit card program.
BancorpSouth’s Pink Card program is designed to support breast cancer awareness by donating a portion of purchase transactions from activated Pink Cards to local organizations that support breast cancer research. Each year, the bank selects nonprofit breast cancer centers (or breast cancer support centers) across its footprint. Organizations must meet certain nomination requirements to receive the donation
“As we recognize Breast Cancer Awareness Month, BancorpSouth is proud to support the East Alabama Medical Center Foundation,” said David Turner, BancorpSouth president – North-Central Alabama Division. “We chose to donate to the EAMC Foundation because we know they will apply the funds directly to the programs and services that the hospital provides for their patients.”
The EAMC Foundation’s mission is to provide high-quality, compassionate health care for the underserved population. It is committed to providing every woman with breast cancer screening, regardless of her ability to pay. Its free mammogram program is funded through community donations to the EAMC Foundation. The program benefits women in its communities with limited or no health insurance coverage, women who most likely would not receive this potentially life-saving screening test.
