Thrift Stores to feature pink ribbons

All five Hospice Thrift Shoppes (Alamo, Danville, Walnut Creek, Concord and Antioch ) will celebrate Pink Ribbon Days throughout the entire month of October, which is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, by offering products and information to raise awareness about the disease.

"We want to acknowledge the many women who are dealing with breast cancer, as well as send a message of hope that early detection and research will bring about a cure," said Vicki Smith, manager of Anna's Program, a specialized part of Hospice of the East Bay that offers practical and emotional support to women with recurrent breast cancer.

The Concord store, Anna's Attic Thrift Shoppe, 5350 Clayton Road, will sponsor a special Pink Ribbon Day on Friday, Oct. 24.

"Each customer will be given a complimentary pink ribbon, the symbol of breast cancer awareness," said Smith. "There will be refreshments for all, free raffles, door prizes and educational material on breast cancer. Best of all, there will be big discounts on all items throughout the store."
