Vermilion Parish encouraged to Save Lids to Save Lives: Yoplait® Pink Lid Program Offers Community a Way to Join Breast Cancer Fight, Proceeds Stay Local

Yoplait’s signature pink lid program Save Lids to Save Lives®, is taking place during October and November 2010 to once again raise funds for Susan G. Komen for the Cure®, the world’s largest grassroots network of breast cancer survivors and activists.

Community members of Abbeville are encouraged to collect the special pink yogurt lids as proceeds will benefit the local Acadiana Affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure®.

Yoplait is committed to a world without breast cancer and for the 12th consecutive year is turning the brand’s lids pink in October and November.

For every pink lid collected and mailed in by Dec. 31, 2010, 10 cents will be donated to Komen for the Cure, up to $1.6 million with a guaranteed minimum donation of $500,000. Lids submitted are tracked by return address zip codes, which allows a percentage of the total amount of donated funds to go directly to each sender’s local Komen Affiliate.

During the past 12 years, more than 116 million lids have been collected and Yoplait has contributed over $25 million to the cause through programs like the Save Lids to Save Lives® campaign and sponsorship of the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure® series.

Our affiliate is incredibly grateful for Yoplait’s continued support over the years. The Save Lids to Save Lives® program is such an easy and healthy way for the community to get involved and raise dollars for our local efforts. The donation from collected lids will help our breast cancer education and awareness initiatives.

Please drop off your Yoplait lids at Melancon Jewelers or The Abbeville Meridional.
