What is the Pink Cart?
The pink trash cart was designed exclusively for Infinite Disposal to bring awareness around breast cancer and to raise donations for a local Colorado Springs nonprofit we love called Cowgirls Against Cancer. We believe that by giving back, we can bring people together and make a difference.
Our pink trash cart cost $1.00 more than our regular service per month ($3 per quarter); and 100% of this fee gets donated to Cowgirls Against Cancer. Cowgirls Against Cancer helps Colorado Springs residents with breast cancer prevention and detection, as well as treatment and care after diagnosis. On top of your donation, Infinite Disposal, in partnership with the cart manufacturer, will donate an additional $5 for every pink cart sold to Cowgirls Against Cancer.
All the funds raised through this program stay in our local community and help our neighbors. You can read more about Cowgirls Against Cancer and their mission below. While this may seem like a small contribution for each of us, in numbers we can make a real difference in the lives of people struggling with breast cancer.
About Cowgirls Against Cancer
Cowgirls Against Cancer is a grassroots organization that raises funds for people in the Pikes Peak region with breast cancer, or who are at risk of breast cancer. These funds stay within the local community and directly support oncology patients’ needs that are unmet through traditional insurance, and to make day to day life easier. Cowgirls Against Cancer’s goal is to help those today with immediate needs to feel hopeful, strong and in control while they are dealing with this life altering diagnosis.
Patients undergoing treatment receive help with items such as:
- Wig vouchers that suit the individual style and need of the recipient.
- Home-delivered meals prepared based on the individual patient's nutritional needs.
- Mammograms for individuals not covered by insurance or who do not meet standard requirements.
- Help with items such as gas cards to get to and from treatment, lymphedema garments and post-surgical camisoles not covered by insurance, and much more....
Cowgirls Against Cancer is under the umbrella of the Cowgirls Against Cancer will be under the Norris Penrose Legacy Foundation, an accredited 501(c)3. Learn more about their work at cowgirlsagainstcancer.org.
