People putting change into donation jars at grocery stores helps give women screening that may save lives.
In a video news report, you can hear about what the writer calls “small change” that fuels big programs, including the SCCA’s own MammoVan, which brings a mobile mammography clinic to women all over the Puget Sound region.
Money donated in Safeway stores brought $100,000 to the SCCA for the operation of the MammoVan. Some of that change also fueled research on breast cancer by Peggy Porter, MD, of the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, one of our founding organizations.
