Still Time to Support Breast Cancer Awareness in West Bloomfield
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 Greater West Bloomfield area businesses:
Kroger Pink Ribbons
Customers at the West Bloomfield Krogers, located at on Haggerty Road and at Orchard Lake Road, 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 which all have locations in or near West Bloomfield.
Panera Pink Ribbon Bagels
Sold at Panera Bakery Cafe in West Bloomfield 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.
Caribou Coffee 'Amy's Blend'
Customers at Caribou Coffee in West Bloomfield can support Breast Cancer Awareness by purchasing coffee and other items from the Amy's Blend collection. Sales in West Bloomfield will benefit the Lawrence and Idell Weisberg Cancer Treatment Center which is located on Northwestern Highway in Farmington Hills.
