After receiving their mammograms, women also can visit the Intimate Apparel area in their Belk stores to receive complimentary bra fittings.

Belk, the nation’s largest privately operated department store, launched BelkGives on the Go Mobile Mammography in 2013 in partnership with Charlotte Radiology. This mobile mammography center brings convenient, digital screening and awareness to Belk markets throughout the Southeast. In its three years on the road, the mobile unit performed more than 9,600 mammograms throughout the Southeast that resulted in 46 cancer diagnoses.

Belk’s $6 million investment in this program marks the retailer’s deep commitment to women’s health issues and breast cancer education and is the company’s single largest charitable contribution to date. Belk is the only retailer of its kind to form a partnership alongside community and health organizations by extending breast cancer screening and increasing breast cancer awareness through its own operation.

Proceeding this event, Belk will be hosting its annual Family and Friends sale from Wednesday, June 1 through Sunday, June 5. Throughout this five day sale, all customers will enjoy the 25% discount usually reserved for family and friends of Belk employees.
