Posted: Updated:
ALBEMARLE COUNTY, Va (WVIR) -

The Belk store at Fashion Square Mall in Albemarle County offered free mammogram's Saturday.

Customers were invited to get screened for breast cancer inside an RV that was parked outside the store.

Anyone without insurance was eligible for a free screening. The store says it had appointments with more than 20 women.

"It's a corporate responsibility it's a personal responsibility and we have a very generous giving culture here,” said Jackie Hensley a Belk employee.

The mobile mammogram truck made stops in the Shenandoah Valley Thursday and Friday.

The store says it has had several of its employees diagnosed with cancer in recent years, so it's a personal mission for them to get more women screened.
