Folks at Marrakech’s Oak Tree Day Program showed their support for Breast Cancer Awareness Month on October 14th, 2015 by presenting ten handmade baskets full of pink goodies to people they knew who have had or have breast cancer, and to the Harold Leever Regional Cancer Center in Waterbury, the Helen and Harry Gray Cancer Center in Hartford and the New Britain Cancer Center.
Employees and the people supported at the day program donated five dollars each to purchase the items, then assembled the items into ten Breast Cancer Awareness Baskets. On October 14, they had a celebration and honored those who have been affected by breast cancer by wearing pink, decorating the building in all pink and enjoying pink food at tables with pink centerpieces made by Nakiesha Davis, Assistant Manager of Oak Tree. Nakiesha, whose grandmother was a recipient of one of the handmade baskets, said that the individuals supported at Oak Tree did such a great job assembling the baskets and that the day was a great success!
Way to go, Oak Tree!
