Company provides donation in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month
Woburn, MA. (October 8, 2020) – SBLI (The Savings Bank Mutual Life Insurance Company of Massachusetts) is supporting the National Breast Cancer Foundation (NBCF) in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month by underwriting the cost of 100 of NBCF’s HOPE Kits for breast cancer patients. The company is also donating $20,000 to the NBCF to support their mission of helping women affected by breast cancer through early detection, education and support services.
Each HOPE Kit is filled with items that patients find comforting and encouraging while undergoing breast cancer treatment, including fuzzy socks, tea, unscented lotion, and more. With their additional $5,000 HOPE Kit donation, SBLI is inviting 100 employees to designate a recipient of a HOPE Kit, whether they choose a loved one who has been diagnosed with breast cancer, or one of the more than 4,000 women on the NBCF HOPE Kit waitlist.
“As we observe Breast Cancer Awareness Month in October, SBLI is proud to support National Breast Cancer Foundation and their HOPE Kit program,” said SBLI President and CEO James Morgan. “Most of us know someone who has been or will be affected directly by breast cancer. One in 8 women will be diagnosed with the disease in her lifetime, and we need to support this important work.”
“The SBLI team is a powerful example of an organization committed to making a difference. In the midst of a pandemic they tapped their creativity to find a way to engage everyone on the SBLI team and Help Women Now by delivering HOPE Kits to employees’ loved ones or those on our HOPE Kit waitlist”, said NBCF SVP, Strategic Partnerships & Charitable Giving Ken Ramirez. “National Breast Cancer Foundation is extremely grateful for team SBLI’s creative thinking to empower hope through the distribution of these valued HOPE Kit care packages, as well for their incredibly generous gift of $20,000 which will make a significant impact on those affected by breast cancer.”
