United Breast Cancer Foundation Gift-in-Kind Community Service Program Update
Date:1/12/2017

The United Breast Cancer Foundation Gift-In-Kind Community Service Program has grown tremendously in 2016. UBCF partners with national retailers and big box stores to provide useful and high-quality products to breast cancer patients and survivors. On a local and national level, UBCF has provided nearly 900 people with much needed items that help improve both physical and mental health.

Purchasing clothing, shoes, personal care and household products such as bedding, curtains, rugs, kitchen utensils, and small appliances is often neglected in the face of managing medical bills. The Gift-in-Kind Community Service Program helps maintain a sense of normalcy in people's lives by providing every-day items both at UBCF's headquarters donation center and at off-site donation events. UBCF recognizes that breast cancer impacts the entire family. The Community Service Program supports children in homes affected by breast cancer by providing items such as baby clothing, car seats, strollers, bedding, books, and toys.

A recent client, Susan D. offered this gratitude to UBCF, “Thank you so much. It is people like you that make us continue with the fight of survival.” Executive Director Stephanie Mastroianni says, “UBCF has been working toward the goal of connecting women and families managing breast cancer in need with quality, big box store home goods and baby essentials.”

UBCF held two Tempur-Pedic® mattress donation events in 2016; one in New York and one in Virginia. Between the two events, 200 twin and 40 double Tempur-Pedic® mattresses were given to breast cancer patients, survivors and immediate family members. Sleep is essential in the recovery of the body and Tempur-Pedic® mattresses can alleviate stress on joints and muscles, providing a more restful nights’ sleep.

For the first time UBCF also offered holiday gift bags to clients. An assortment of sweaters, shoes, and bulk organic lip balm were provided during donation appointments. Regulating body temperature and moisture, especially in colder weather, are important factors in maintaining one’s health.

UBCF is proud to offer the Gift-In-Kind Community Service Program year-round to clients. Those in need of UBCF's services may contact Marta(at)ubcf(dot)org to schedule an appointment or learn about distribution events. Patients, survivors and children (0-18 years old) are encouraged to contact UBCF to set-up an appointment to receive items.
