2018 marks the 4th year we are dedicating our business to breast cancer awareness and support here locally during the month of October. 

Our team at Caskey & Caskey, just like many of you, all have close, personal experiences with cancer: whether it’s through friends, family, or colleagues. We realized that, together, we could all make a conscious effort during this time of the year to do our part and help bring awareness to the importance of fighting breast cancer by involving as many others as we can in this cause.

WHY PINK?

We change our signs and marketing pink for the month of October to focus on the importance of cancer screening. Our hope is that when you see our sign, it will inspire you to reach out to your friends and loved ones with a gentle reminder to book those important mammograms or to help educate a young person in your life so that they make self-exams part of their regular health routine. 

HOW WE HELP

As a team, we realize that we love what we do because we love where we are. We want to see the South Bay thrive, along with every resident here. As a more direct means of giving back, Caskey & Caskey chooses each year to donate to Cancer Support Community- Redondo Beach, and to Chemocessories. These organizations are local, the work they do has a direct effect on our community, and they continue to raise awareness while helping those who have been directly impacted by breast cancer.

We pledge a portion of the commissions earned in the month of October to providing impactful donations to these organizations so they can continue the work they do right here in our community.

HOW YOU CAN JOIN IN

This year we are hosting our first DONATION DRIVE to collect needed items for the rapidly growing Chemocessories program. You can bring your gently used or new:

Earring sets

Bracelets

Necklaces

Fashion scarves

to one of our two Manhattan Beach collection points.

In East Manhattan, you can bring your donations to our main offices at 1117 5th St, Suite A. 

Downtown Manhattan Beach, you can bring your donations to our sister-office, Strand Hill Properties, at 1300 Highland Ave, Suite 104. 

In addition to bracelets, necklaces, earrings, fashion scarves and turbans, they also need donations for postage (the average cost to mail a single set is $4.00) and they can also use donations of padded manila envelopes which can easily be picked up at your nearest office supply store or ordered online.

ABOUT CHEMOCESSORIES

Chemocessories is a recipient of the 2018 Great Non-Profits Award. Theirs is a community of giving. At Chemocessories, they create personalized sets of accessories, including jewelry, scarves and turbans, that are designed to lift spirits and to remind each woman that treatment in no way diminishes the beautiful woman within. To date, they have assembled and distributed 5,850 sets of accessories nationwide. They receive about 100 requests per month for new sets. Our hope is to help them surpass 6,000 sets at the end of our month-long drive. When you donate much needed supplies, you help Chemocessories support women with cancer so they can hold on to their strength and sense of themselves during treatment. 

In addition to bracelets, necklaces, earrings, fashion scarves and turbans, they also need donations for postage (the average cost to mail a single set is $4.00) and they can also use donations of padded manila envelopes which can easily be picked up at your nearest office supply store or ordered online.
