National Breast Cancer Foundation (NBCF) is proud to announce the recognition of the Circle of Hope Award to Dillard’s for having cumulatively raised more than $1 million for the organization to further its mission of Helping Women Now. Since the start of the partnership in 2005, these proceeds have provided crucial programs and services to help women in need.
“Over 10 years ago when Dillard’s began partnering with National Breast Cancer Foundation, I knew breast cancer was a disease that affected so many women and so many lives. I knew we needed to get involved and do something to educate and support those who have been, and will be, affected by breast cancer. Through our skilled certified fitters, dedication to service, and curated assortments, we help women—all women—feel beautiful every day. What I’m most honored by is the opportunity to work for a company that genuinely cares, not only about the donation but about making a difference in so many women’s lives.” – Chris Melton, Dillard’s Merchandise Manager
Dillard’s supports the foundation through their annual bra fit events in the Spring and Fall through sales of their bras and shapewear at their store locations across the country. In addition, Dillard’s helped co-write the foundation’s Bra Fit Guide which has had over 27,000 total downloads to date.
“NBCF is proud of our 16-year partnership with Dillard’s and for their dedicated commitment to our mission of Helping Women Now,” said Janelle Hail, NBCF Founder & CEO. “Their cumulative funds raised to date hit the $1 million mark this year which has enabled us to provide life-changing programs and services to thousands of women affected by breast cancer across the country.”
