Safeway Hawaii has donated $20,000 to Kapiolani Medical Center for Women & Children to help promote breast cancer awareness.

Gov. Linda Lingle joined John Obrey, Safeway's Hawaii district manager, in announcing the donation.

"It is important for everyone to understand more about breast cancer and how it affects our residents," Lingle said.

"Safeway's generous donation will help ensure that proper medical research and breast cancer prevention programs will continue in order to save lives."

Safeway also paid for production of a 30-second public service announcement video that features Lingle encouraging women to learn about breast cancer and the importance of annual mammograms for early detection.

Obrey said, "We are proud to provide this service to the people of Hawaii, and we encourage all of our customers to be aware of the steps they can take for early detection in order to increase the chances of survival for themselves and their loved ones."
