With the overwhelming support of our local communities, Valley Staff presented a check in the amount of $1,782.44 to Charlene Lund, of the American Cancer Society. The donation was made possible by the sale of the Lets Sync…Wear Pink Shirt Sales organized by Valley Office Staff.

Valley invites everyone who purchased a pink shirt to wear them each and every Friday in October in support of the nationwide Think Pink..Breast Cancer Awareness Program.

Over the next 5 Fridays, we will feature pictures on our website of Valley Members participating in this important campaign. Send your pictures to webmaster@valleytel.net and we will post them on our homepage!
