We are making a difference in the lives of women in our Community.

Did you ever stop to think about the fact that many low-income women may own only one bra that is worn everyday, washed often and probably has seen better days? We often receive requests by women who are in need of a bra because the only one they have the strap finally broke or a wire is poking through. On a tight budget, most women will always put themselves and their needs last, especially when the kids are in need of shoes or the bills need paid. Something so basic as a bra is a small thing when it comes to helping a woman in need.

The Bra Bazaar will once again provide women in our area with a means to obtain decent, properly fitting bras. What a better time for this event than during Breast Cancer Awareness Month, when we can also provide important information and education about breast cancer and the importance of early detection and self-examination. Pick up a drop box receptacle from the T&NWOC Center, decorate it and place it in your office, business, church or club. Get involved, start collecting gently used bras from your friends, family, co-workers and neighbors!

Monetary donations are greatly appreciated. Below you will find information concerning Participating Sponsors. Donations can be made directly by visiting our Facebook community page:
