Blue Foundry Bank Goes Pink in Support of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Blue Foundry Bank spearheaded a month-long fundraising effort to provide mammography, ultrasound, biopsy and MRI services for those who might otherwise go unscreened. Led by the bank’s Leadership Development Class (LDP) of 2019 and embraced by the bank and its employees, the initiative raised $2,500 to benefit the Connie Dwyer Breast Cancer Foundation’s breast center in Newark.

“Connie Dwyer Breast Cancer Foundation does an exceptional job providing top quality breast-health services for the underserved and vulnerable,” said Karen Hackes, Education & Development Manager and LDP Adviser at Blue Foundry Bank.  "We are honored to align ourselves with this organization and do what we can to make a difference in the lives of members of the communities where we work and live."

Throughout October, the 12 person LDP team successfully raised money by selling pink t-shirts and offering weekly "Cupcakes for a Cure" bake sales to fellow employees. In addition, on National Mammography Day, the bank’s corporate headquarters was awash in pink and white balloons, honoring Blue Foundry friends and family members who have beaten, are still fighting or have lost their battle with Breast Cancer.
