Shining a light on Childhood Cancer Awareness Month
Bluebonnet's buildings, employees and even trucks will be showing gold in support
Bluebonnet Electric Cooperative’s buildings, employees and even its trucks will be showing some gold in September to support Childhood Cancer Awareness Month. At night, our member service centers in Bastrop, Brenham, Giddings, Lockhart and Manor will be bathed in golden light. If you see any Bluebonnet member service representatives, they’ll be wearing gold-colored ribbons and handing them out to members.
Check the cooperative’s Facebook and Twitter pages throughout this month for useful information about how you can join the fight against childhood cancer.
