Webster’s Dictionary defines “Partnership” as a valued relationship between individuals or groups that is characterized by mutual cooperation and responsibility, as for the achievement of a specified goal.
At DBCC, we are so very grateful when people ask us, “How can I help in the fight against breast cancer?” We could not effectively fight breast cancer without the outstanding dedication and support of our partners. These partners make possible our outreach and education programs, as well as our support and resources for those newly diagnosed with breast cancer or facing recurrence. Our partners stand right beside us – making our work possible.
DBCC partners and partnerships are unique, creative, and varied, making use of individual and organizational resources, talents, networks and ideas to raise awareness, dollars and volunteers.
Our Partners Include:
- Large retail outlets, department stores and small boutique stores
- Restaurants, bars and entertainment groups
- Large corporations and small businesses
- Public and private schools (elementary to college)
- Sports teams (high school, college, professional)
- Hair and beauty salons
- Car dealerships
- Creative special events and organizations (golf and fishing tournaments, horse races)
- Service contractors and businesses
- Individuals who have dedicated special occasions (birthdays, anniversaries)
- Hospitals, physicians and health care providers
These wonderful and generous people, businesses and organizations are truly leaders in the life-saving fight against breast cancer. We look forward to continuing and expanding these relationships and to creating new partnerships! We hope you will consider how you can become a partner with the Delaware Breast Cancer Coalition! Please visit our website or contact the DBCC offices in Wilmington, Dover, or Lewes.
