HARTFORD, CT - Chartwells food service employees and Trinity College students joined the Connecticut Affiliate of Susan G. Komen® in the local fight against breast cancer. More than $4,600 was donated to Komen Connecticut thanks to their efforts.

During the month of October, Chartwells employees donated money in order to wear pink on Thursdays during their shift, instead of their usual white uniform. Their goal was to raise awareness for breast cancer. Trinity College students also wanted to participate in the cause. Students were able to donate their unused meal money value at the end of each week to support the local fight against breast cancer.

“It was a remarkable and unique idea brought on by Chartwells employees,” said Anne Morris, CEO of Komen Connecticut. “We love to see collaboration between groups fighting for the same cause, so it was great to see Trinity students also get involved. We are so thankful for their ongoing support in the fight against breast cancer.”

Until we find the cures for breast cancer, early detection is the key to survival. For each of the past four years, Komen Connecticut has made approximately $1 million in community grants to local organizations providing lifesaving services for women in need across our state. Komen Connecticut relies on the support of the local community to continue investing in cutting-edge research and local breast cancer services for Connecticut women and their families.
