NORTH CANTON, Ohio (10/5/09)--October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and ATM manufacturer Diebold is ramping up its “Partners in Pink” campaign to spread awareness and raise money for Susan G. Komen for the Cure Northeast Ohio. The company will sell pink vacuum air tube (VAT) carriers to customers with Diebold and others’ drive-thru systems. One dollar from the sale of each carrier will be donated to the Komen Northeast Ohio Chapter for cancer research. Diebold is based in North Canton, Ohio. The proceeds donated to Komen also contribute to payments for free mammograms for women in need, the company said. “It is our goal to blanket the country with pink VAT carriers, and to help spread awareness of the leading cause of death among women, with the hope that every Diebold pink VAT carrier sold will bring the world one step closer to finding a cure for breast cancer,” said David Bucci, Diebold senior vice president of customer solutions.
