Universe Appliance, Gas Heating, Central Air and Plumbing will donate a portion of their sales in October, which is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, to the Carol M. Baldwin Breast Cancer Research Fund, a charity dedicated to finding a cure for breast cancer on Long Island.
According to the American Cancer Society, one in eight women will develop invasive breast cancer during her lifetime. In a statement from Bill Powell, president of Universe, “Our goal is to donate $10,000 to help the Carol M. Baldwin Breast Cancer Research Fund find a cure for breast cancer, which touches the lives of so many of our Long Island friends and families.” The Carol M. Baldwin Breast Cancer Research Fund supports both new and established researchers in their investigation of the causes, prevention, and treatment of breast cancer.
The $10,000 donation will help the Carol M. Baldwin Breast Cancer Research Fund add to the more than 72 research grants they have been able to fund because of generous donors like Universe. To date, the research grants that have been awarded to the Carol M. Baldwin Breast Cancer Research Fund have totaled over $4 million to aid in this medical research.
“It is our small way of giving back and joining in the fight to help cure this disease,” says Powell. In addition to the fundraiser, employees of Universe will show their support to find a cure for this disease by wearing pink T-shirts throughout the month of October.
