VB in Action: Memorial Sloan Kettering FOOD program

DEBUG: cgb/block-vb-two-column

With Thanksgiving around the corner—and in the spirit of both National Gratitude Month and Lung Cancer Awareness Month this November—we're continuing our #VBGIVESBACK partnership with the Lung Cancer Research Foundation with a special giveback to the Memorial Sloan Kettering FOOD program. Team VB, both at corporate HQ and throughout our stores nationwide, have been donating pantry items to the nonprofit, which supports underserved people who are undergoing treatment for cancer and other chronic illnesses. In addition, we've created special gift baskets for the lung cancer patients with handwritten note cards and our Pumpkin Pie recipe (see below). Our customers have been chipping in, too, with dollar donations at all VB locations—to all those who have contributed, THANK YOU.

P.S. It's not too late to support the cause. To donate directly, click here—and help us give food and healthy nutrition to the patients who need it most.
