Passengers that ride on the pink coach will have the ability to make a donation to the American Cancer Society in their efforts to raise awareness and find a cure for this disease.
“Our coaches are seen by thousands everyday and by wrapping our coach in pink with this message we are helping raise awareness about this disease and a local resource at Southampton Hospital” says President Geoffrey Lynch.
Hampton Jitney is raising money by offering passengers the opportunity to add $1, $5, or $10 to their fares on all trips, 100% of the money raised will be donated to the American Cancer Society.
