FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Margate, Florida (September, 30, 2021) We Florida Financial plans to honor and celebrate Breast Cancer Awareness all month long. Every We Florida Financial branch will be accepting donations for the cause. Anyone in the local community will be able to go into a branch and honor the life of a fighter by adding a heart to their support wall. In addition to the support wall, We Florida Financial has already received over $850 in employee donations.
