For the 2nd year, LIPSG partnered with 3 breast cancer coalitions to help families in need. In addition to donating $695 in gift cards and $250 in cash, LIPSG employees donated blankets, pajamas, slippers, sweaters, sweat pants, toys, and more. Our goal was to bring some holiday cheer to these families, and they were overwhelmed and grateful for the kindness of “strangers” who helped to bring the gift of joy this holiday season. Here’s what some of them had to say:
“I’m overwhelmed for what you have done for my family. Best wishes in the New Year to the staff at LIPSG.” – TC, Manhasset Women Against Breast Cancer Coalition
“Thank you so much for the wonderful assortment of gifts that LIPSG staff put together for Claudia and her family. The thoughtfulness and generosity reflected in the gifts is truly amazing and the family is tremendously grateful.” – Social Worker at Adelphi Breast Cancer Hotline
“Merry Christmas! Thank you all so very much!!!! My daughter loved all the Frozen stuff and the LEGO’s.” – MT – Babylon Breast Cancer Coalition
This initiative would not have been possible if it were not for the support of our wonderful staff who gave so generously. Thank you to everyone who donated, and we hope to be able to help next holiday season!
