The funds raised were donated to the Hopkins County Health Care Foundation’s In My Closet program which provides free wigs, prosthetics and other needs to Hopkins County women going through treatment for breast cancer.

The monies donated will be used to restock the supplies as well as to assist local, uninsured women by providing access to free mammograms at the Ruth & Jack Gillis Women’s Center, a part of CHRISTUS Mother Frances Hospital – Sulphur Springs.

Maleta Reynolds, chair of the Hopkins County Health Care Foundation, expressed her gratitude to the group.

“These women are so kind to the Foundation. For several years now, they have reminded women of the need for mammograms and self-exams, and they have also raised money to help Hopkins County women get the supplies and care they need. We are so very appreciative for all that the ladies of the SSLGA have done to support In My Closet,” Reynolds said.

In My Closet was established in 2016 and has been source not only for supplies for women going through breast cancer, but also for encouragement.
