Frisco, TX – December 2, 2022 – National Breast Cancer Foundation (NBCF) partnered with The CATO Corporation this past October to utilize their nationwide platform of supporters to give back by highlighting the importance of early detection and providing support and resources to those affected by breast cancer.

With one in eight women being diagnosed with breast cancer in her lifetime, The CATO Corporation has made an astounding impact toward NBCF’s mission of Helping Women Now®. Through customer donations at the register, employee engagement during the month, and a corporate matching gift at the conclusion of the month, The CATO Corporation has generously donated a monumental $750,000 to NBCF. 

“We were ecstatic that CATO selected National Breast Cancer Foundation to be the recipient of their efforts during BCAM,” said NBCF Director of Fundraising, Becca Epperley. “To learn just how much they raised made us speechless! The level of support they have from their customers across the country is amazing and speaks volumes to CATO as a company. With their generous support during October, we were able to bring awareness about breast cancer to all their locations- both to their amazing customers and the CATO family at large. The impact will go far beyond awareness as their donation will directly impact the lives of thousands of women and their families as they navigate a breast cancer diagnosis right now.”
