Each year, over 200,000 women in the United States are diagnosed with breast cancer. Because this disease affects so many, Younkers has joined in the battle to fight it. With our Charge Against Breast Cancer program, every time you use your Younkers card, we'll make a donation to the Holden Comprehensive Cancer Center at The University of Iowa to help fund breast cancer research.
At the Holden Comprehensive Cancer Center at The University of Iowa physicians and scientists are dedicating their careers to finding a cure for breast cancer. Committed to bringing world-class research and cancer care to Iowa, the Midwest and beyond, the center uses a team approach to offer greater access and enhanced services to its patients.
Since this program began in September 1998, with the help of our customers, we have donated over $4.9 million companywide to five leading research facilities! Please join us in the search for a cure by using your Younkers card every time you shop in one of our stores. If you don't have a Younkers card, visit a store to find out how you can apply!

Support breast cancer research year round when you add our reusable pink tote, just $3, to your shopping cart at checkout. This line can be added back in when the new tote arrives in-stores and online in September. This bag is perfect for shopping in our stores and durable enough to use at the grocery store.
Each October, we set up a Pink Shop online and within each of our stores that includes special Breast Cancer Awareness merchandise. Each purchase from our specially selected Pink Shop assortment generates a donation to fund breast cancer research. Together, we can help find a cure!
