Our chapter was honored to take part in the 2020 Drive for Making Strides Against Breast Cancer!! This important event raises both awareness and funding for the fight against breast cancer.

We were so happy to deliver our Mama Kits, Food Kits, and Dental Kits for their Kids! These kits provide holiday help for our local refugee and African-American families.
