Consumers can now help fight breast cancer with every swipe of their debit card.
Riverside Community Bank debuted their Pink Ribbon Debit Card on Tuesday. When consumers use the card for signature-required credit transactions, a portion of the fees collected from the transaction will benefit Crusader Community Health Women's Center, which provides women with clinical breast exams and preventative care at affordable costs. The fees collected will help low-income women who are eligible for Crusader's sliding fee scale.
"The lack of access for these preventative services is demonstrated by a waiting list of more than 200 women for the Illinois Breast and Cervical Cancer Program coordinated by the Winnebago County Health department," Nancy Halverson, Chief Quality Officer at Crusader Community Health, said. "That program provides our low-income female patients with the breast exams they need."
