Still Time to Support Breast Cancer Research in Dearborn
As National Breast Cancer Awareness Month draws to a close, you can donate to the cause at these local businesses.
Breast Cancer Awareness Month ends Wednesday, along with several charity drives for breast cancer research at Farmington area businesses:
Customers at the Dearborn Kroger stores located at 15255 Michigan Ave., 23000 Michigan Ave. and 23303 Michigan Ave. may purchase a pink ribbon for $1 or make a coin box donation to benefit breast cancer awareness and research. All proceeds will benefit the American Cancer Society and the Barbara Ann Karmanos Cancer Institute.
The Pink Pumpkin Patch Foundation, a nonprofit organization that funds breast cancer research, is working with major retailers this month to raise money for breast cancer research through the sale of special pink-skinned pumpkins. Participating retailers include Kroger, Home Depot and Walmart, all of which have locations in Dearborn.
Sold at Panera Cares in Dearborn in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, the signature bagel has raised more than $1.25 million for breast cancer charities nationwide. In participating Panera bakery-cafes in the metro Detroit-area, funds will be donated to the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure.
The west Dearborn jeweler is selling pink sapphire bracelets through Oct. 31 for $100, 20 of which will go toward the Karmanos Cancer Insitute. Steven Bernard Jewelers is located at 22266 Michigan Ave. in west downtown.
Hungry Howie’s Pizza locations are joining the fight against breast cancer. All pizzas will be served in bright pink boxes and Hungry Howie’s will make a donation to the National Breast Cancer Foundation, Inc. for every pizza sold. Customers can also add a donation to their order. The Dearborn Hungry Howie's is located at 3736 Monroe Street.
