Bras Around The Building 2019


The 2019 Bras Around The Building campaign is offically underway, supporting Breast Cancer Awareness and Research.  And once again this year, Merrett Home Hardware Building Centre will be donating $1 to the Canadian Cancer Society for every bra collected.

The campaign will continue through October, concluding on Friday, Oct. 25th.

Throughout the campaign, residents of Peterborough and the Kawarthas are encouraged to donate their gently used bras. For every bra collected, Merrett Home Hardware Building Centre will make a $1 donation, with proceeds going to the Canadian Cancer Society to support breast cancer research and cancer services. Bra donations can be dropped off until Thursday, Oct. 24th at the following locations: Energy 99.7/Pure Country 105 (59 George St. N., Peterborough), Merrett Home Hardware Building Centre (1460 Lansdowne St, Peterborough) , My Left Breast (203 Simcoe Street), and the Canadian Cancer Society of Peterborough & District (730 The Kingsway, Unit 2, Peterborough).

The morning of Friday, October 25th, with help from Peterborough Fire Services, collected bras will be strung together around the exterior of the Pure Country 105 building in Peterborough as symbol of support for women battling breast cancer, to honour survivors and to remember those who have lost their battle. Bras will remain on display until Monday, Oct. 28th.  Upon completion of the campaign, a cheque will be presented to the Peterborough and District Unit of the Canadian Cancer Society for breast cancer research based on the final number of bras collected.

We are looking for you to take part.  We need BRA-Bassador’s to help spread the word.

What’s a BRA-Bassador?  It’s someone who is willing to lead a workplace campaign to collect bras and funds for the Canadian Cancer Society.  A BRA-Bassador is willing to be a leader in funding Breast Cancer Research and the services that cancer patients use every day.  And have some fun while doing it.
