Local consultants for Thirty-One Gifts recently organized a generous donation of 113 tote bags for patients at the St. Peter’s Cancer Care Center.
The bags were filled with blankets, warm socks, creams and lotions, books, and other items intended to provide comfort to patients undergoing treatment.
Thirty-One Gifts consultants Kendra Hadden and Colleen Landversicht organized the donation. They asked their customers to sponsor bags as well as donate items to fill them, then delivered the goodies with their children.
“Our patients truly appreciate these bags,” said Anne Lawton, RN, community outreach nurse with St. Peter’s Cancer Care Center. “We are so thankful to the Thirty-One Gifts consultants and everyone who contributed to the bags. Their generosity makes a direct, positive impact on patients who are receiving treatment for cancer.”
Thirty-One Gifts, a direct sale company, launched its philanthropic program, Thirty-One Gives, in 2012. Over the past seven years, the program has donated more than $100 million in products and cash.
