Representatives of Arbutus Park Retirement Community presented a $1,000 donation to the Joyce Murtha Breast Care Center. The retirement community raised money in October by selling pink gobs and Thanksgiving pumpkin rolls in November. This is the fifth year the community has held fundraisers to support the center, and this year’s donation brings their total contribution to date to $4,110.
Their generous support helps fund Pink Ribbon Care, a program that provides assistance for patients who are unable to pay for breast-related health services – including mammograms, follow-up diagnostic services, and genetic counseling.
