Over the recent months, BPW/Gold Coast collected items to donate them during Breast Cancer Awareness Month. These items accumulated to over 10 boxes, four plastic bags, multiple items on hangers and more. On October 19, they were donated to The Florida Breast Cancer Foundation, which has thrift stores around the state. The truck arrived timely at the home of the President of BPW/Gold Coast, Sue Banks. The driver was very personable and grateful for the donation. Sue took a PR moment and gave the driver an envelope with the letter below and included a BPW/FL and BPW/FL Education Foundation brochure.
