Just 'Cause:

Developed in April 2013, the mission of the 'Just Cause project is to help women with the diagnosis of, treatment for, and recovery from cancer. Our first program collected over 300 gently used headscarves, hats, and wigs at a variety of locations within St. Barnabas Medical Center. Those items were cleaned/sanitized and re-styled for distribution to women in cancer treatment who might not otherwise be able to afford them. In conjunction with the Barnabas Health Foundation, we have raised over $4000 in funds to continue supporting women in cancer treatment.

Generous sponsors supported our kick-off events, and others generously donated their time and talents to the cause.  We would like to formally acknowledge their contributions to the success of the program.  Gitterman Wealth Management; Vickie Grosso and Larry Pitts; Barnabas Health Foundation; Saveway Cleaners; Hair Design Studio School

One challenge we faced was the lack of storage and ability to redistribute items through the hospital cancer centers. Therefore, future programs will focus on items that can be redistributed without the need for storage and care.
