Local 3028 Supports Our Sisters!
Updated On: Dec 04, 2012
Local 3028 Supports Our Sisters! A special thanks to Local 3028's Local Women's Coordinator, Lesliee Delancy! Truly excellent work!!!

Kudos to all those who particpated in the 2012 bra drive for Support our Sisters Breast Cancer Survivors and Women's Breast Health Support. We received over 130 bras for women in need, with an estimated value of over $2500.00. Sometimes things we absolutely take for granted can make a huge difference to someone else. This expensive item of clothing, when well fitted, prevents muscle and nerve pain, numbness, weakness, osteoarthritis, poor circulation, and enhances lymphatic drainage, and oxygenation of the body, which is also critical for mastectomy patients.

Prodceeds of this year's fundraiser benefited Anchorage's Claire House and Providence Cancer Center, Palmer's Alaska Family Services, and the Emmonak Women’s Shelter. Anchorage's Clare House provides temporary, emergency 24-hour shelter for women with children and expectant mothers. The Anchorage Providence Medical Center is one of the premier facilties in Alaska for treating breast cancer. The MatSu Borough's facility provides a broad network of programs, including the only nationally accredited domestic violence/sexual assault shelter in Alaska. The rural Emmonak shelter serves about 500 women and children a year from more than a dozen villages in and around the Yukon River delta, in a remote area where the rates of sexual assault and domestic violence are far higher than national averages.

Hats off to all those contributed those in need.
