The Pink Pack Foundation

August 24, 2023

On August 24, 2023 both Angela Papalia, LMSW, Assistant Director of the Adelphi Breast Cancer Program and Nina Foley, LMSW, Volunteer and Hotline Coordinator of the Adelphi Breast Cancer Program had the pleasure of meeting Sienna Koke & Ethan Light, the founders of The Pink Pack Foundation. 
The Pink Pack Foundation, website:,  donated over 275 backpacks across Nassau and Suffolk Counties, to various breast cancer organizations who serve women and their families. 
Created in 2023, The Pink Pack Foundation was created to help the children of breast cancer patients get ready for the new school year. Each backpack was filled with the necessary items for children entering all grade levels, from kindergarten to twelfth grade, and was lovingly put together by this inspiring duo. 
The Adelphi NY Statewide Breast Cancer Hotline and Support Program is incredibly thankful for being one of the many recipients of these beautiful backpacks, and will distribute them to families who would benefit most. 
Thank you to both Sienna & Ethan, for touching the lives of so many children and families! On behalf of the Adelphi Breast Cancer Program
and the families we serve, we are so incredibly grateful for your generosity!
