Phoebe Kimmelman Donates DVDs and Video Library to Dubin Breast Center

Phoebe Kimmelman, a high school student in the 10th grade, recently made a donation of portable DVD players and DVDs to the Dubin Breast Center at Mount Sinai. These DVDs and players will allow breast cancer patients to watch movies and television shows while they receive chemotherapy at the Center.
Phoebe raised the funds to purchase the DVD players by selling bracelets at her school and to family and friends. The bracelets, made of recycled paper, were purchased from an organization, Global Goods Partners, that sells handmade gifts made by women around the world. In addition to raising funds to purchase the DVD players, Phoebe was able to get Warner Brothers to generously donate a video library of popular movies and television shows. Thanks to Phoebe’s efforts, not only will Dubin Breast Center patients be able to have hours of entertainment, but the bracelets help impoverished women in Cambodia, and have a positive impact environment through recycling.
The DVD players and discs fit in with the Dubin Breast Center’s mission to provide personalized care in a warm, supportive setting. This thoughtful and generous gift will have a lasting impact on patients.
