BILLINGS - Customers at Rocky Mountain Bank can choose a debit card that will help in the fight against breast cancer.
Employees have been wearing pink this week, for the start of the bank's "take a swipe at breast cancer" campaign.
Customers can chose the Pink Ribbon Debit Card when they open a checking account.
The bank will donate two and a half cents of every four cents it charges for debit card transactions, to Billings Clinic for its program that provides free mammogram for women with without insurance or who are under insured.
"We're a community bank," said Stephen Casher, Rocky Mountain Bank's Billings Market President. "We live here. We work here. Our families live here and we all know people that have been affected by breast cancer and it's a way for us to in the local community, keep the dollars here locally, keep the dollars here locally and do something that is measurable and visible to all."
Rocky Mountain Bank's 10 branches in the state will participate in the program.
The money will be split between BIllings Clinic and the Northwest Healthcare in Kalispell.
Casher says the program will continue indefinitely.
