About Color Me Pink Boutique
The Color Me Pink Boutique is a joint effort between the McLeod Cancer Center, the McLeod Breast Health Center and the hospital’s Volunteer Auxiliary. In addition, volunteers of the Auxiliary provide staffing in the boutique.
These volunteers are also Certified Post-Mastectomy Bra and Prosthetic Fitters.
Many of the wigs have been donated to the McLeod Boutique by patients and individuals in the community as well as the American Cancer Society and local retailers. All of the wigs have also been refurbished, cleaned and styled.
The McLeod Volunteer Auxiliary is also open to any donations of new hats, wigs or scarves. If you are interested in dropping off items at the medical center, the following locations can accept your donations: McLeod Breast Imaging and the Volunteer Services office, which are both located on the first floor of the McLeod Pavilion or one of the two McLeod Gift Shops.
