Do you or someone you know have an interest in volunteering?

Baskets of Care distributes 400 bags or more every year. Baskets of Care’s volunteers—many of whom are breast cancer survivors—lovingly pack each bag. We distribute Comfort Care Bags through our partnerships with surgeons, oncologists, and breast care centers across Northwest Ohio and Southeast Michigan. We are the only organization in the region that provides Comfort Care Bags to people with breast cancer!
