Shields Bag and Printing Supports National Breast Cancer Foundation

09/ 5/2013

Shields Bag and Printing, a leading supplier of tamper evident security bags to the financial industry based in Yakima, WA, is pleased to announce its partnership with the National Breast Cancer Foundation (NBCF).  During the month of October, Shields will sell uniquely designed Breast Cancer Awareness bags with a portion of the proceeds designated for NBCF.

“We are excited to be partnering with the National Breast Cancer Foundation” said Lisa Shields Long, President and CEO of Shields Bag and Printing.  “The work NBCF is doing with respect to early detection through mammograms and supporting women who are undergoing treatment for breast cancer is vitally important.  For the month of October we will be donating $5.00 per case of selected bags to the National Breast Cancer Foundation.   Too many families have been affected by breast cancer and anything we can do to raise awareness and draw attention to this dreaded disease is necessary.”

Shields Bag and Printing will donate $5.00 for every case we sell of our two best selling products, printed in Pink with the iconic Pink Ribbon in support of NBCF during the month of October:

  • 9x12 EcoSTAT Tamper Evident Deposit Bag for Commercial Cash and Check Deposits
  • 12x22 EcoSTAT ‘Fed Ready’ Coin Bag
