First State Chevrolet’s Trunk or Treat 2021 was a sweet treat for the community and Delaware Breast Cancer Coalition.
First State Chevrolet presented a check to the Delaware Breast Cancer Coalition Nov. 15 in its Georgetown showroom.
The donation represented proceeds from First State’s Trunk or Treat event held Oct. 30. The annual event is a day is full of fun games, treats and safe Halloween activities for children and their families.
Tables were staffed by volunteers who gave out information, treats and educational offerings from many local businesses and organizations.
Safe Halloween fun included face painting, raffles, games and more activities.
Headquartered in Wilmington with offices in Kent and Sussex counties, the Delaware Breast Cancer Coalition’s programs reach diverse communities to deliver messages that address their unique concerns about breast cancer and early detection.
Recognizing the barriers of language, culture and economics, the coalition trains community advocates through its peer mentor program, and works to help educate and encourage women and men to take responsibility for their health through breast health presentations and community health fairs.
The coalition also helps those with low incomes and those with little or no insurance receive free or reduced-cost care. The vision of the agency is to create a community where every person diagnosed with breast cancer becomes a survivor, and fear and doubt are replaced with knowledge and hope.
