Hartselle Post Office promotes cancer fight

Published 12:13pm Friday, October 4, 2013

Hartselle Postal Service employees continue to do their part in support of American Cancer Society’s annual Breast Cancer Awareness campaign.

“The Power of Pink” signs surround the post office building. Pink displays decorate the customer service area. Customer service employees wear pink monogrammed shirts on designated days.

“We’re excited about being a part of the “Fund the Fight – Find a Cure” campaign,” said employee Janna Martin. “Purchasing the pink stamp is a convenient and voluntary way to contribute to the fight against breast cancer and also help us reach our goal of becoming the state’s top stamp seller for the fourth year in a row.”

In addition, Breast Cancer Awareness Stamps have been made available to customers. A “Forever” stamp, they are priced at 55 cents each or $11 per book. Eleven cents from each stamp sold is designated for breast cancer research.

“The Hartselle Post Office has sold more Breast Cancer Awareness Stamps than any other post office in Alabama for the past three years,” said Hartselle Postmaster Lee Nall. “And since 1998, over $77.8 million has been raised by the U.S. Postal Service for breast cancer research through the sale of the stamp.”

A Breast Cancer Awareness Lobby Event is planned for Fri., Oct. 25. Throughout the day, pink lemonade will be served to customers free of charge and a special emphasis will be placed on the sale of pink Breast Cancer Awareness Stamps.

“I’m proud of the work and effort our staff does to promote cancer research,” said Nall. “But it’s not about what we do but what our customers do. The Hartselle community has been extremely supportive of this endeavor to help fund research to save lives.”
