(WAFF) - Three new Alabama license plates will be available for purchase beginning July 1.

The Alabama Department of Revenue (ADR) said plates for Colon Cancer Awareness, Prostate Cancer Research and Thank a Lineman have exceeded the minimum number of pre-commitments and will be available for sale.

The plates cost an additional $50.

The proceeds of the plates benefit:

Colon Cancer Awareness – Colon cancer awareness group Rumpshaker will use money to raise awareness about the condition, as well as funding monthly support group and scholarship program.

Prostate Cancer Research – Proceeds go to Mike Slive Foundation for Prostate Cancer Research.

Thank a Lineman – Proceeds go to the Central Alabama Community Foundation (Energy Institute of Alabama Foundation) to fund education and health programs.

The ADR said four other tags are being redesigned.

The Letter Carriers, Choose Life (Support Adoption) and Pink Breast Cancer (formerly Fight Breast Cancer- Joy to Life) tags were all resigned and will be available next month. The tags are being shipped to every county based on the number of current registrations. The Jefferson State Community College tag was also redesigned with tags shipped to Jefferson County.
