Season Preview
Dear Friends,

The holiday season is in full swing and I'm excited to share our most recent news!

Our program locations have been busy and we've enjoyed seeing so many of our dear patients. Safe, compassionate service is our priority and we're diligently following local, state, and federal Covid guidelines with every patient visit. Our usual measures remain in place: multiple health screenings, personal protective equipment and air purifier use, and strict sanitation efforts.

And our final fundraiser for 2020 is under way. You likely received our holiday letter and I hope you enjoyed reading our news. We're so very thankful to our friends who have already donated! Your gifts will sustain our Assistance Program patients in the months to come.

If you'd like to donate easily and securely, visit our PayPal page or mail your donation to:

Speaking of the holidays, we're excited to partner with supporters Kendra Scott and Fremont Flowers. Read on to find for details on their fundraising initiatives.

Looking ahead at December, please note that our program locations will be closed in observance of the holidays on December 24, 25, 31, and January 1.

On behalf of our team, we hope you enjoy the holidays safely. Stay well!

Our People with Purpose Pink Pajama Party will include entertainment and HERS Award presentations, and tickets for this online event will include a Pajama Party Box full of special treats to help you relax and feel pampered!

Gala-specific updates will be sent soon via email. For now, save the date -- Saturday, May 8, 2021!

Holiday Shopping for HERS
Kendra Scott chartreuse boxes are iconic, and her jewelry and home decor are desirable gifts.

What makes her company even more appealing is Ms. Scott's philanthropy. HERS has benefited from several fundraisers in the past and we're excited to announce a new one the weekend of December 4 & 5!

This is a lovely opportunity to purchase holiday gifts and empower breast cancer survivors.

Whether you shop in store at the Santana Row location or online, you'll find something for everyone on your list!

  • Shop in store or online December 4 & 5, 2020

Fremont Flowers is offering a beautiful preserved rose arrangement (pictured right) to benefit HERS patients programs. This is a great opportunity to shop local!

Preserved roses retain their texture and color for up to three years and make a luxurious gift for a loved one or yourself.

Final Thoughts
Thanks to the members of Kappa Xi Sorority of CSUEB for raising $1,370 during Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

They hosted "Pie A Kappa Xi To Raise Money for Breast Cancer" and chose HERS to benefit!

Follow them on Instagram to learn more about how sorority members build strong sisterhood, practice philanthropy, and create friendships that last a lifetime.
Did you know some patient orders may be filled by phone and mailed or picked up at curbside? This is just one way we're striving to keep our patients and team members safer.

Call (510) 790-1911 to see if this option will work for you. We're open Monday through Friday, 10 am to 5 pm.

We look forward to serving you!
