For the third consecutive year, the national nonprofit United Breast Cancer Foundation (UBCF) provided brand new Tempur-Pedic mattresses to women, men and families in need in rural Southwest Virginia. UBCF’s Director of Operations, Ms. Beth Reichart, coordinated and managed the donations. “UBCF is honored to provide these beautiful Tempur-Pedic mattresses to so many folks in need year after year. A good night’s sleep is a vital component to a healthy, productive life,” said Ms. Reichart. Twenty-eight volunteers from UBCF, The Health Wagon, UVA Wise and OptaFuel gathered on November 22nd, a sunny Saturday, in Norton, VA, to distribute 126 mattresses. UBCF took the opportunity to educate the community on breast health wellness and the cancer services provided through UBCF’s life-supporting patient and family programs: Breast Screening, Breast Reconstruction, Individual Grant, Audrey B. Mastroianni College Scholarship, Child Sponsorship, Holistic Care and Community Service Programs. UBCF plans to distribute additional mattresses later this month at their headquarters office in Huntington Station, NY.
Beth, and Stephanie Mastroianni, Executive Director of UBCF, wish to thank the supporters that make the UBCF Mattress Donation Giveaway possible. Stephanie points out that UBCF was recently approved to receive donations through Amazon Smile, eBay Giving and America Gives Back. “During the Holiday Season supporters can make a donation simply by selecting UBCF as their favorite charity. A percentage of each purchase goes directly to UBCF”.
