The Breathing Room Foundation Kitchen Renovation
Help for Families Facing Cancer
Sauers Cares partnered with The Breathing Room Foundation to help families facing cancer.
Located in Elkins Park, The Breathing Room Foundation provides care to local families affected by cancer, allowing them a bit of “breathing room” from their daily struggles. BRF offers financial and logistical support, children’s programs, meals and care packages, and emotional support.
Brand New Kitchen Renovation
Recently, BRF moved into a new space and one of their keystone initiatives was going to be an even greater challenge. This initiative invites volunteers to use the on-site kitchen to make home-cooked meals that are delivered to their families in need. Dedicated volunteers like Cindy’s Suppers also cook and serve meals to families and their invited guests in the formal dining room. This simple but lovely act gives families a warm and peaceful way to relax and connect without the hassle of hosting or cleaning up. Unfortunately, The Breathing Room’s new space had an outdated kitchen that didn’t even have a working stove! And that's when Sauers Cares stepped in.
Our 2022 MUAC Car Show raised the funds to provide BRF with a full kitchen renovation, culminating in a beautiful and functional space. Sauers Cares introduced BRF to our longtime friends and supporters at TJ Kyle Construction as well as other contacts who were able to donate appliances and kitchen wares. Together, we identified the needs and wants that would most impact the BRF community. The plan was set and we all could not wait to see this amazing transformation.
It’s time to announce that the kitchen is now ready for cooking! The BRF kitchen now has beautiful new appliances, tons of cabinets for kitchen essentials and donation storage, ample counter space, a coffee station, and a gorgeous center island for preparing and packaging or serving meals – everything to ensure the continued success of this important program that helps families facing cancer.
