LAS VEGAS (PRWEB) October 08, 2021
Every October Shango retail stores sell its signature pink merchandise to raise money for worthwhile organizations that serve cancer patients and survivors. This year Shango Las Vegas will donate all net proceeds from its sales to The Caring Place to aid women and men in financial crisis who are battling life-threatening cancers.
The Caring Place is an adult services program offered through the Nevada Childhood Cancer Foundation. Its services educate, support and empower cancer patients and their direct caregivers, as well as cancer survivors, all at no cost.
Shango Las Vegas will donate 100 percent of its pink merchandise profits to help provide debt relief for breast cancer patients who have difficulty paying their medical bills.
“The Caring Place is an oasis away from medical facilities,” Shango Controller Julie Dubocq said. “It is committed to improving quality of life for cancer patients and their caregivers by helping them experience joy and peace.
“Shango is honored to serve these courageous men and women,” Dubocq said. “Providing financial resources that can help them succeed on their journey from diagnosis to treatment to recovery has become an essential part of our charitable giving.”
“We are so grateful and very excited to be benefitting from this generous donation from the Shango Las Vegas cannabis dispensary,” said President/CEO Jeffrey Gordon. “We encourage everyone to visit their website and participate in their Pink Merchandise promotion. The funds coming to The Caring Place will all go to a very noble and loving cause, and directly impact so many in need.”
The Caring Place is now located at the Nevada Childhood Cancer Foundation, 3711 Sunset Road, Las Vegas, Nevada
