Bras of Hope: Trenton’s Community Impact

During Breast Cancer Awareness Month, we see lots of pink ribbons and breast cancer awareness events. But it’s important to know that people need different kinds of support. Not just medical support, like finding cancer early and treating it, but also everyday things, like having comfortable bras. 

In Trenton, our community cares a lot about helping each other. Some local organizations are working hard to make sure women can get bras that fit well, and other life necessities. We want to tell you about these organizations and the incredible things they do in our community.
