Show Support for Breast Oasis to Help Women in Your Community
As a practice manager or physician, you understand the importance of building positive relationships with both business and non-profit organizations in your community. Show your support for charitable organizations by donating your time, services, money, or just promoting awareness about an organization that really resonates with you and your practice.
One organization that may interest you is Breast Oasis, a non-profit charitable organization dedicated to providing women who may not be able to afford them, with clean, certified, gently used bras. This organization collects gently used bras to donate them to women in need. The organization also works with companies and organizations such as Mentor, the Battered Women’s Shelter of Summit and Medina Counties, and Bloomingdales to support its mission.
Breast Oasis was founded by Ohio based plastic surgeon Dr. John Pedersen upon his realization that many breast surgery patients were throwing away perfectly good bras following their procedures. Dr. Pedersen and his team at Akron Plastic Surgeons created Breast Oasis as an outlet for women to connect with one another and help those in need by donating their gently used bras.
In order for women to donate, Breast Oasis has created various destinations for women to send in their new or gently used bras including retail drop boxes as well as their website www.breastoasis.org. Upon receipt, the bras are collected, inspected, laundered, packaged into gift bags and then distributed to women in need.
