TUPELO, Miss. (WTVA) - A Tupelo resource center which has helped many women battle serious health problems throughout the years will be shutting its doors soon.
Judy Hester, director of Women First Resource Center, says the closing of the center came after she and the center's president Sherry Abraham felt it was the right time.
"We'll miss Women First. That's us. That's part of us," she said.
The organization provides free wigs, bras, prosthetics and advice to help women battling the strong fight against breast cancer.
She says with the center closing, the organization will donate $75,000 to Saints' Brew, which is comprised of volunteers who gather in the All Saints' kitchen to prepare a hot breakfast for people in Tupelo.
"Being here in the building and things being sold out and realizing that it's closing is really depressing for men," one volunteer at the center said. "Because I know how many people have been benefited by this opportunity to be here."
"Although this is a sad time for us, we hope that over the years we have made a difference in the lives of women and their families in our area," the center posted to its Facebook page in late April.
The official last day will be June 30.
