Fighting breast cancer
New Mexico Bank & Trust is offering new and existing customers an opportunity to fight breast cancer in New Mexico. The bank is rolling out its new Pink Ribbon Debit Card. Every time a customer uses the card to make a purchase, New Mexico Bank & Trust will make a contribution to Breast Cancer Resource Center in Albuquerque.
Pink Ribbon Debit Cards are free and available with all New Mexico Bank & Trust personal checking accounts.
Besides providing information and support to patients and families, Breast Cancer Resource Center helps its clients navigate the health care system and connects them with the care and services they need. It makes transportation arrangements for people who cannot drive. For those who do drive, they offer gas cards, a significant service considering patients can come from all over New Mexico.
