Life Enrichment Director Cassy Wynn has been helping the residents make the ribbons. On Fridays in October, the residents will sell the ribbons for 50 cents each and donate the profits to the Susan G. Komen for the Cure, Wynn said.

Wynn said the residents have set a goal of selling 120 of the ribbons and being able to donate $60 to Komen.
“If we can do more than that, we’ll be thrilled,” Wynn said.
