Galardi Bowen Give Back Initiative 2023 Partner The Pin Ministry: A Three-Month Update

Galardi Bowen Plastic Surgery is deeply committed to giving back to the communities where we live and work through the Galardi Bowen Give Back Initiative. In January, we announced our partnership with the PiN Ministry to help support the mission of providing resources and assistance to those experiencing homelessness in the Virginia Beach area. Please continue reading for an important update about this program and to learn more about how you can join us.

With your help, we’re doing it!

We are elated to share that since January 1st, we have collected and donated 223 bras to our friends at the PiN Ministry. That’s approximately 2.5 bras per day!

The first image on the left shows a young women dressed in all black seen standing outside the entrance of GBR Plastic Surgery. She is holding a brown and black striped woven basket full of bras of various sizes and shapes. The second image on the right shows the same young woman now standing with a second female inside the PiN Ministry. The second female is wearing a black t-shirt over an orange long sleeve shirt and jeans. She is an employee of the Pin Ministry. They are both smiling and showcasing the basket of donated bras.

We want to thank you all for your contributions. We are truly honored to be able to play a small part in the fantastic work that the PiN Ministry is doing in the Virginia Beach area.

Did you know that bras are one of the most requested items for women in need?
