Splurge Donates Scarves to Cancer Patients at Greenwich Hospital
For the eighth consecutive year, Splurge is partnering with Smilow Cancer Hospital’s Greenwich Hospital Campus to donate scarves to patients undergoing chemotherapy treatments. From now to Oct. 31, with every purchase of $150 or more, Splurge will donate a pashmina scarf to a chemotherapy patient. Splurge customers are invited to hand write an encouraging note to the patient receiving the scarf. In the event that a customer would like to donate a pashmina scarf without meeting the minimum purchase, scarves are available for sale at a discounted price of $20 each. At the end of the month Splurge will match the final quantity of donated scarves and double the gift. To date, Splurge and their loyal customers have donated nearly 700 pashmina scarves to Smilow’s Greenwich Hospital Campus.
Splurge owner Sonia Sotire Malloy shared, “At SPLURGE, we are committed to supporting National Breast Cancer Awareness Month with our pashmina program. We all know someone who has been touched by cancer in some way, and as a result we are pleased to provide a thoughtful gesture and message of encouragement to patients going through chemotherapy treatment at Greenwich Hospital.”
Kristina Capretti, Program Director of Oncology Services at Smilow Cancer Hospital’s Greenwich Hospital Campus added, “Through SPLURGE’s generosity and thoughtfulness, patients undergoing chemotherapy treatment at our campus are able to enjoy a beautiful gift that brings a wealth of joy. Patients are appreciative of the handwritten notes of encouragement and look forward to wearing the gorgeous scarves, especially during the cool fall months. It is truly wonderful that SPLURGE is continuing this great tradition for our patients.”
