ONANCOCK, Va.– Because so many of its customers and staff have had personal experiences with cancer, Dawn-A Unique Shop for Women and Home in Onancock decided to make a supporting donation to the Riverside Shore Cancer Center.

 

Dawn White who owns the shop has made similar donations to many local charities in the past, but this year was special because the cause was so familiar and personal for her customers and employees.

 

As a quiet mission that touched the hearts of many, the shop collected donations from customers as well as donated a portion of the proceeds of their Sizzlin’ Summer Sale at the end of August.  Gifts were made “to honor and continue supporting our amazing survivors and in memory of so many angels we have lost too soon,” and totaled nearly $2400.00.
