Church of the Brethren Home Staff Supports Breast Cancer Awareness Month

On November 6, staff from the Church of the Brethren Home in Windber presented a check for $405 to the Joyce Murtha Breast Care Center. Home Ice Cream Parlor Manager Dan Dadura baked more than 1,200 pink ribbon-shaped cookies that were sold in the Parlor. Administrative Assistant Teena Petrus organized dress down days throughout the month of October to raise additional funds.

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.
