ADDISON, IL--(Marketwire - October 16, 2012) - FP Mailing Solutions, a provider of postage meters and mailing equipment, is taking direct action in its home community to help fight breast cancer. On Thursday, October 18, FP is partnering with Culver's Restaurant in Addison, IL to raise funds for the National Breast Cancer Foundation (NBCF).
FP will set up outside Culver's (1347 W. Lake, Addison, IL) from 11:00am to 7:00pm, where employees will greet visitors, accept donations, distribute literature, and allow guests to send free breast cancer awareness postcards to family, friends and loved ones. Guests can donate cash, personal checks, or pledge. Culver's is also donating a percentage of the day's sales to the NBCF.
An unusual aspect of the event is that guests can mail breast cancer awareness postcards for free on FP Mailing's pink postage meter. The postage machine is part of FP's PostBase line of small-business meters that come in six colors, including the limited edition pink, branded with the breast cancer awareness ribbon.
FP Marketing Director, Kevin Pietras, reflected, "Since breast cancer has touched nearly everyone in some way, including our corporate family, we're motivated to make a difference within our company walls, the local community, and beyond. Culver's has been a great, caring partner, joining the cause without hesitation. I encourage everyone to stop by, make a donation, send a postcard, and treat yourself to a delicious Butter Burger. We can all make a difference!"
This event is part of FP Mailing Solution's campaign to raise money and awareness for breast cancer in partnership with the NBCF. The campaign includes a fundraising website that allows online donations to the NBCF (http://nbcf.stayclassy.org/fundraise?fcid=212542).
FP invites residents and visitors in and around Addison to stop by the Culver's restaurant October 18 to learn more about breast cancer and take some personal action in the fight against this disease that threatens one out of eight U.S. women.
