Looking for a way to support CancerCare‘s professional support services for people affected by cancer? Please consider a donation to CancerCare‘s Thrift Shop, located at 1480 Third Avenue (between 83rd and 84th Streets) in New York City. Art, jewelry, furniture, china, crystal, and new or gently worn clothing and accessories are especially welcome.
The shop’s Director of Retail Operations, Caroline McKinnon, also encourages donors to remember CancerCare when they are managing an estate, and that all contributions are tax-deductible.
Kristin Bergfeld, who runs an estate service helping families, recently helped a family find a meaningful way to donate items that belonged to their mother:
“A recent client of my company, whose life was tragically ended by cancer, was a professional woman who loved high fashion, especially Yves St. Laurent. When we began work to clear her apartment, I saw that she had a bookshelf in her living room filled with books and articles about cancer, and information about support groups.
When I saw this bookshelf, I immediately thought of CancerCare and its thrift shop. By donating dozens of her designer clothes and accessories, including shoes, handbags, scarves, and Yves St. Laurent blouses, dresses, jackets, and gowns, her estate helped support CancerCare’s free services for cancer patients and their loved ones.”
