Mission: The satchels of caring foundation has been committed to supporting those with cancer in the pittsburgh region since the organization initiated its program in 2003 as the crew pittsburgh foundation.
Programs: Satchels are sewn and given to cancer patients. They are filled with the following items: cotton scarf, instructions on tying the scarf, support literature, hand & body cream, tissues, lip balm, inspirational booklet & bookmark, note cards, peter sterling cd, and a journal. In 2014, the program distributed 1,255 satchels. Since 2003, the foundation has handcrafted and assembled more than 10,000 satchels.
As a cancer survivor myself, I understand the overwhelming fear of hearing the words, I'm sorry but it is cancer. Knowing others care warms your heart and lifts your spirits. Our satchels are a hug in bag, full of love and inspiration as you battle this horrible disease. We all need to give a little of ourselves so others can have strength. This Foundation truly makes a difference in the lives of those battling cancer.
