Wrapped in Love
Oct 1 - Oct 25
Drake State Community and Technical College launched its Wrapped in Love initiative in 2021 to support patients battling breast cancer. For Breast Cancer Awareness Month, the college has partnered with several local organizations to collect blankets for patients going through chemotherapy treatments at Clearview Cancer Institute.
“Breast cancer patients often experience chills during treatments and could use a blanket” said Drake State Student Success Specialist Tiffany Green. “Unfortunately, a blanket may not be available to keep them warm. I want everyone who is dealing with cancer to feel a layer of comfort and care during this challenging season.”
Blanket collection boxes can be found at the following: Drake State (Library 2nd Floor), Barre3 Huntsville, Zoom Indoor Cycling, Twickenham Nutrition, and Weichert Realtors. Donations are currently being accepted throughout the month.
Donated blankets should be new and soft as the skin can be sensitive from chemotherapy treatments. The last day to donate is Tuesday, October 25.
