Pink Day participants


Staff members at Jewish Collaborative Services in Providence recently participated in Pink Day with other agencies, schools, organizations, sororities and fraternities, across the U.S., Canada and Puerto Rico, with Sharsheret, a Jewish breast and ovarian cancer organization.

Pink Day, this year on Feb. 14, is a worldwide initiative to raise awareness of breast and ovarian cancer through a range of educational and fundraising events.

Sharsheret, Hebrew for chain, is the only national organization supporting Jewish women and families, of all backgrounds, facing breast and ovarian cancer—those who are diagnosed and those at high risk.
