FREMONT, CA — September 23, 2019 — Starting October 1st and running throughout the month of October, men’s clothing retailer Jos. A. Bank will continue to support the fight against breast cancer. Knowing that cancer touches the lives of their customers, employees, their families, and all Americans, the brand is focused on supporting the National Breast Cancer Foundation, Inc. (NBCF) to advocate attention and raise funds for both men’s and women’s breast cancer research.
In the ongoing effort to raise awareness for cancer research, Jos. A. Bank is participating in October’s National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. To date, Jos. A. Bank has donated $100,000 to the cause, and plans to donate another $50,000 this year, making it a combined total of $150,000 over three years. Monies donated to NBCF will go towards helping to provide assistance and inspire hope to those affected by breast cancer through early detection, education, and support services.
In addition to a financial contribution, Jos. A. Bank customers and employees will have an opportunity to write a note of encouragement that will be included in Hope Kits, a package of thoughtful items distributed by the NBCF, that patients will receive to comfort them while they undergo breast cancer treatment.
“Nurturing the community is one of the company’s key pillars, and I am proud of how we are continuing to support such a worthy cause,” said Mary Beth Blake, brand president of Jos. A. Bank. “Our brand will be deploying a number of company-wide initiatives that will support the holistic mission of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month.”
“NBCF is grateful to partner with Jos. A. Bank for a third straight year in support of our mission of Helping Women Now,” said NBCF Founder & CEO, Janelle Hail. “Their donation will enable us to continue providing help and inspiring hope to women and men affected by breast cancer across the U.S.”
