Campbell's donating to cancer cause
Think pink when looking for cans of Campbell Soup on store shelves next month.
Beginning Oct. 1, Campbell's chicken noodle and tomato soups will dress in pink and white in support of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
The gold medallion will be replaced with a pink ribbon, the traditional breast cancer awareness symbol.
Campbell Soup Co. is donating $300,000 to Susan G. Komen for the Cure. The money will be used to help support breast cancer research, education, screening and treatment, as well as breast cancer awareness initiatives.
Sales of the pink-and-white cans are not linked to the company's donation.
