Did you know 1 in 8 women and about 1 in 1,000 men get diagnosed with breast cancer? Aside from skin cancer, breast cancer is the most common type of cancer for women. Many of Arnold Oil Company’s employees have either been affected or know someone that has been affected by breast cancer. This October, Arnold Oil Company is generating awareness by hosting a fundraiser for breast cancer research.
Arnold Oil Company is selling pink A-Line Auto Parts & Outdoor Power and Arnold Oil Company t-shirts for $20. All proceeds from the shirts will be given to Breast Cancer Resource Center located in Austin and Round Rock, Texas. In recognition of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, employees were given a pink ribbon to wear on their shirt to show support for breast cancer awareness everyday of October.
